Wicked Wicked Good

If you're not familiar with the Broadway show "Wicked" just get the CD and like many people who have listened to the music can agree that this show is spectacular. "Wicked" is about the life of the witches of Oz before and during Dorothy's entrance into Oz. The Wicked Witch played by Idina Menzel (Jan. 9-SHOSHANA BEAN) has another story of how she became wicked. And Glinda the good played by Kristin Chenoweth (Present-Jenn Thompsan) is the wicked Witches best friend. Both actress shows that their talents in acting and singing are beautiful. Chenoweth a high Soprano who is very high and beautiful takes youth heart away. Myself, being a Chenoweth fan, and seeing everything she has been in, was in love with her way of playing Glinda. Menzel proves in her end act one number "Defying Gravity" that she has a third lung, after she holds a long note for a very long time. The cast with Carole Shelly, Norbert Lee Butz, Michelle Felder, and Joel Gray, also makes the show outstanding. I should mention today's present wizard is played by George Hearn from the appetite losing show "Sweeny Todd." This documentary explains "Wicked" so watching this will be like an entering stage to the show "Wicked." You will fall in love after you see this show. I have seen it 6 times and each time I fall deeper and deeper in love. Myself, who was in the hospital for 21 days with an illness, made me feel better, and made my horrible pain go away for a couple of hours while I listened to Chenoweth and Menzel belt their wonderful sounds. So, I thank them for helping me out and battle my almost deathly illness, which I still recover from today. Lisining to the music is soothing. So, this documentary will enter you into "Wicked." It was good to watch. And if anyone like Stephen Swartz, the musical geniuses, or who acted in "Wicked" ever reads this.... Thank you...So much for helping me feels the world of Oz.
