17 Million Can’t be Wrong

17 Million Can’t be Wrong

According to a recent newsletter by Wicked London, over 17 million people across the world have seen Wicked since its Broadway debut in 2003.  Does it count all of us who have seen it like 10 times? Who knows.

There’s no doubting the appeal of Wicked though, for anyone who loved the Oz universe and just weren’t prepared to let it go when the credits rolled in the film. Taking on the wonderful Land of Oz from a new angle and focusing on the characters that many were more curious about than the Tin Man, the Lion and the various main characters, it was bound to be a success. Little did anyone know how big a success it would be.

If you’ve not seen it yet, then what are you waiting for? Doesn’t matter if you have a fear of witches, prefer PartyPoker (fair enough, maybe the Wicked Witch demographic might get a kick out of http://www.partypoker.com/) or just aren’t into musicals, get down to the nearest showing and see it. It’s not like other shows, though like them it does have an interesting history.

The musical debuted on Broadway on October 30, 2003. It was produced by Universal Pictures and directed by Joe Mantello, with musical staging by Wayne Cilento. Choosing from the 38 speaking characters in Wicked the novel, the authors of Wicked the musical show decided to focus their show on eight key characters plus a few others and the ensemble.

Having been attached to the show even before it started previews on Broadway in early October 2003, I still find it hard to believe THAT many people have experienced the joy and magic of WICKED across the globe! It’s so exciting, isn’t it? I honestly knew that WICKED would be a hit to some extent, but the show has blown up to become a worldwide phenomenon. And I couldn’t be happier.

It looks like we will be in the minority but we were very disappointed in a particular aspect of the acoustics in the Gershwin Theatre or the way the sound systems are set up. It was very difficult to hear Glinda talking and we missed most of the comments she was making – and there appeared to be many funny ones judging by the audience reaction toward the front. Additionally it was difficult to make out the words being sung by Glinda at times.

Both these deficiencies detracted from what was otherwise a very good performance.
