I was super excited to go along to see Wicked at QPAC last night and I left feeling completely blown away. Wicked has always been on my "To See List" as I've heard so many positive things.
I wasn't 100% sure what the story was going to be like and how it would fit in to the Wizard of Oz but it was executed beautifully and is a exciting and twisted journey way before good ol' Dorothy came along with her magic ruby slippers!
I got goosebumps from the amazing vocals, the costumes were gorgeous and the performers of all kinds were very talented and in-sync. A special mention to Jemma Rix who played Elphaba (Wicked Witch of the West) and Suzie Mathers (Glinda). Their performances were outstanding. Glinda made me laugh the whole show! I loved her little squeals and mannerisms.
I'm not sure about you, but I get way too emotionally invested in shows and movies. I walked out of the show feeling like the Wicked Witch of the West was totally misunderstood and how dare I have thought any different. Want to know why? Well you're going to have to see it for yourself. This is a spoiler-free zone!
