Just watched it this past weekend at 1500 on 2/26. The singing, effects, and acting just amazed me. Some of the songs were short, some were a little longer, but enjoyed them all. I will say that I enjoyed Elphaba's songs more due to the range of notes and more effects. This was my first broadway show, but having been to touring and off-broadway performances and this by-far exceeded them all.
I grew up watching The Wizard of Oz so much that I am sick of it and have politely requested that it, along with a few other movies, not be watched in our living room while I'm home. With my travel for my job and serving my country, that doesn't leave me much time to spend in my living room, so in honestly it is a very limited time frame that I request this.
I guess when you have skilled actors performing live, instead of having multiple tries to do it and let hollywood do the rest, it just makes me respect the idea of Oz and the story a lot more. Maybe I'll not ban The Wizard of Oz anymore, not that I'll watch it since I'm still sick of that version, but that it will bring back fond memories of Wicked on Broadway.
