Wicked the musical New York Times review by Ben Brantley October 31, "There's Trouble in Emerald City" Brantley seems most taken by Kristin Chenoweth's performance, including her entry from high up above the stage in her "bubble.".
It is a visually fantastic play, with dancing, singing, stunts, special lighting, incredible costumes, and even a dragon. Had a wicked good time seeing Wicked, and so will you, even if you have to pay $ for an orchestra seat/5(). Nov 18, · The play / concessions / entry are a well-oiled machine.
