Me , wife and daughter... My daughter was delighted...17 years old , had read the book... she was very anxious about it.. and it sure was worthwhile for her... I liked it also , not as espectacular as les mis or the phantom... but if you have a daughter do it... Her smile pays the price...

Loved the show, however, our seats were horribly uncomfortable and the theater was not what I would have expected for Broadway. I used to live in Atlanta and went to shows at the Fox Theater and I guess I am a bit spoiled - didn't come close to that experience!

How often have I gone to a musical event and not understood most of the words? This was an exception. The actors seemed invested in producing the best show ever for us. The duet by Glinda and Elphaba toward the end, "Because I Knew You, I Have Been Changed for Good" was so beautiful, my husband and I both cried.... More

I have been hearing about this show from friends for so long. It was a main attraction of our trip to NY. The show was very good, but not anywhere near as fun as Rock of Ages...now that is a fun show!

First let me say I am a red blooded male. I really don't like musicals but we were in town and my wife wanted to see a show so I got us really good seats. Boy was I in for a surprise.. Within ten minutes of the curtain I completely lost myself in the show. Really good acting and singing... More

not a big play guy but this is surely one of my favorite ones. the singing is fabulous. The storyline has to do with the Wizard of Oz and the good and bad witches. Quite ingeniously done. this and Jersey boys are the two best.

It was a great first Broadway play for me and my high school students. The performance seemed flawless with smooth act transitions, great lighting, and eye-catching costumes and props.

The Gershwin Theater is just beautiful inside, stunning architecture and we had a perfect view of the stage from row G in the orchestra. If you have never seen Wicked, go see it! Perfect for families with children over the age of 7.

It was my daughters first Broadway show and we all loved it. I have always loved this classic movie, and this show puts a great twist on it!!! This is a must see.
