I've seen many a Broadway musical over the last 30 years. Wicked instantly became one of my all-time favorites. It's a biting commentary on society, injustice, prejudice, and the use (or misuse) of power dressed up as an alternate storyline that happens concurrently with The...More

Everything about Wicked was amazing! Broadway shows are one of the best parts of NYC and this show defines NYC! Defying gravity is one of the best performer songs ever! I loved seeing this spectacular musical and strongly recommend it!

I've been going to Broadway since 1977 and I've seen dozens of shows. Wicked was the first show where I was ready to leave at intermission (but my wife wanted to see if the second half would be better-it wasn't). Usually, the opening number sets...More

This show has been out for some time now so I wasn't sure it would still be in fine shape. It did not disappoint! The theater was easy to get to, had plenty of escalators to take us up to the balcony. Comfy seats and...More

The play / concessions / entry are a well-oiled machine. You can tell this is a long running hit show as soon as you enter. Fantastic show with amazing voices and cute plot. There's a reason it's still in after so many years. I would...More
