I had high expectations for this show, I had heard a lot about it and tried to see it in Chicago in 2008. It met many of my expectations.
The show itself was quite good but overall too many saccharine moments, sticky sweet girly parts of love and friendship I could have done without.
This being said, I have coined a phrase to describe the show. Just before the intermission, the witch sings "Flying Gravity" and flies for the first time and it was (here's the phrase) "Wet-Your-Pants Good". Amazing moment in theatre I'll never forget.
Richard H. Blake as Fiyero underwhelmed, I didn't buy him as the leading man, but Chandra Lee Schwartz as Glinda was great and Jackie Burns as the lead Elphaba was perfection.
