Why ‘Wicked’?

Wicked Poster

Wicked’ is one of the most important musicals in musical theatre history. Last week, the show celebrated the 5.000th performance at the Gershwin Theatre, on Broadway. That means 12 years of success since it was presented for the first time in 2003 in San Francisco, before going to Broadway.

This musical is a result of the popularity of ‘The Wizard of Oz’, a book and a film with a very important legacy in the American culture. This show is a product that, at the time it was created, was one of the most expensive musicals in history. It requires a lot of technical effects, makeup and performers every night at stage. Lots of things have happened since the first performance until now: a family of fans getting bigger and bigger, lots of awards and popular actors and actresses performing the different roles and growing up as professionals.

Wicked’ is a unique show, I still remember when I discover it for the first time, when I listened the soundtrack and when I watched the show at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. That’s why this show is the musical of this month, because there are a lot of experiences and good memories.

Do you remember the first time you discovered ‘Wicked’?

    My first (and sadly, the only one) was on New Year’s Eve 2 years ago! First row and with the amazing Willemijn Verkaik as Elphaba. I didn’t know anything about the story so I was amazed with the plot and with the performance of actors. One of my favourites experiences and with the best person to share with!
