Here is a picture of Glenda and Elphaba. The two actors we saw were brilliant. Glenda is portrayed as a dumb blonde....she was hillarious. The story even explains why Elphaba was green. There are so many twists and turns that add to the story.
The stage and costumes were gorgeous! It was all so ALIVE! (and green)
This scene gave me chill bumps. It was so exciting! The special effects were great. This is where Elphaba decides she is going to fight the Wizard. And what is weird is you are on here side, not the Wizard - he really turns out to be a bad guy.
I read the book before going. It was a hard read, but very good. The play is a lot different, the ending is totally different, but having read it, I understood the characters and was able to enjoy it that much more.
If you get a chance to see "Wicked" please do. I know I will see it again. I can't wait to take Rachel!
