Last weekend my husband and I went to the Pantages Theatre to see WICKED. What a treat! I hadn’t read the novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, so all I knew was that it was the backstory to The Wizard of Oz. And what a great story it was, not to mention the acting, singing, coreography and sets. I was reminded of the flood of fractured fairy tales in the children’s book market not too long ago. This was like one of those stories tenfold. If you get a chance to see it, don’t pass it up. It’s worth every penny.
