jarodyjkCaught #Wicked during #BroadwayWeek #NYC at #GershwinTheater & found the story a little dated. Nonetheless, the set & stage were dazzling as well as the performances of dancers, singers & actors. It would likely thrill younger audiences & those who are not familiar with movies/stories based the Oz universe.
Having caught all of the Huntsman movies, the twists in the Wicked plot were already told & retold countless times. Additionally, I felt that the characters lacked depth & were often stereotypes that I personally found to be quite distasteful.
I think that Wicked is very much due for rewriting & I wouldn't recommend it to anyone who is familiar with the Oz universe & modern anti-hero characters.
