Wicked

Went to see Wicked, a charming musical inversion of the Wizard of Oz playing on the conventions of the teen age drama. In this version the wicked witches are a wheelchair-bound cripple and a talented but misunderstood girl who happens to be green.

There was special applause for the Wizard of Oz, played in this version by Melbourne celebrity Bert Newton.

I've read the book and am dying to see the musical! How did you like the musical?

I really liked it. It had a superb set that made a lot of use of wires, lighting and animatronics. The script was clever, inventive and witty. The dancing and choreography was first rate. The music itself was good but lacking a really killer song that you'd play on the radio. In many ways it was more like a movie soundtrack, with each character having a musical motif.
