Overview Reviews

Critics’ Reviews

The most complete, and completely satisfying, musical I've come across in a long time.

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

Winnie Holzman's script keeps the gags coming as it cleverly subverts the film that spawned it. Packed with spectacular coups de theatre and magical effects.

Review by Charles Spencer from The Daily Telegraph

"Wizard of Oz" fans will be fascinated by all the back stories, answering such questions as "Is Glinda really that good?" and "Where did the flying monkeys come from?" But the best thing about Wicked is its stars, whose talents cast a poweful spell.

Review by Rome Torre from NY1

What a spectacle this is! Keep your eye on the witches. These wonderful girls from Oz are a delight.

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

Built on songs by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, the show is steeped in talent.
