"Wicked" is thrown about regularly by New Englanders to mean "good" or "cool" or even "intense" – as in that is a "wicked storm out there" or in the former meaning "that is a wicked good chowda." However, never before could you say "That was a wicked good Wicked" until now.
I am not enough of a theater goer to be able to review things like production quality or performances with any authority, but on a personal level, the show was extremely enjoyable and it puts such a spin on the Wizard of Oz that you will never watch it in the same way again – and I mean that in the best way possible.
I watched the movie for the first time in years a few months ago and it surprised me how fast paced it was for an older "children’s" movie and the book/play combination of Wicked takes it even further out of the realm of being a work of juvenile literature, and more into a story of good, evil, deceit and truthfulness.
Truly a wicked good Wicked.
