“Wicked” is a re-telling of the L. Frank Baum’s classic story “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz,“….. from the witches perspective. “Wicked” is based on the Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West“. The story begins before Dorothy ever set foot in OZ, but continues after her arrival. “Wicked” is a tale of friendship and trust that reveals that there are always two sides to a story. The show’s main characters are Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch.
The show follows Elphaba through her childhood and schooling. Elphaba is a passionate activist who wants to fight injustice. Glinda is her “spoiled rich girl” friend. The two are unlikely friends who must deal with differences in opinion and get caught up in a rivalry over a man they both want.
The stories events and their friendship will ultimately lead to Elphaba’s ultimate fall from grace and get Elphaba labeled “Wicked“.
