Wicked is a spectacular Broadway musical by Stephen Schwartz, which is also written by Winnie Holzman and based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire book of the same name. It’s about the life and times of the wicked witch of the west who seduces young men to follow her. There are four main characters, namely the Wicked Witch, the Prince Charming, the Marquis de Lafayette and the Prince Humper dinck, all of whom have something in common, and that is their thirst for wealth and their wish for love and fortune.
Each of the main characters has two or three supporting roles and in between these, we get a host of unforgettable scenes and hilarious scenes that will make you laugh your way to the heart’s content. When I first heard about Wicked Musical Houston, I was expecting a typical Broadway musical and a standard cast with a theme song. I was surprised when I saw that this musical is a unique and exciting creation that features the talents of a top class cast. The songs and music in Wicked are very catchy and are sung with great feeling and emotion. The story is really romantic and if you look at each character objectively, you will realize that they all had something in common. It makes for a very well-made Broadway musical.
You may not like Wicked, but I know you will enjoy it. If you’re looking for a fun and entertaining musical, then I urge you to check out Wicked. And if you are not sure whether you like it, then you may watch it again to see whether the score is catchy, the story is original or the music is good. Wicked is a fun musical and that’s exactly what a good musical should be.
