WEAK

This was not the Wicked I have seen before. The casting was poor….I wanted more out of each of the characters. I felt like the singers were struggling to reach their notes. I was very disappointed to say the least

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES FRIDAY 7/6/12

The show started thirty or so minutes later than scheduled due to technical difficulties, but I wish they would have completely fixed the problem before they started the show. Throughout the entire show there were mic problems with mainly the instruments and volume control, but there were also a couple vocal mic issues. The first few seconds of As Long As You're Mine were cut off sadly. I paid $190 for our two tickets, so I'm sad that the show wasn't the best it could've been. Technical difficulties aside the show was great! Glinda was hilarious and all of her quirks were absolutely perfect. Madam Morrible was splendid as well. Elphaba had the capability to be amazing, but the changes she made to her songs shouldn't have been made. Maybe she just had a bad night. Fiyero started off iffy with Dancing Through Life, but he finished strong. He was perfect in As Long As You're Mine. Basically it was worth seeing, and it would've been more enjoyable had I not known what to look for.

PRETTY MUCH COOKIE CUTTER

Sets were great but the story and action were focused too much on long scenes that featured the signing of the soloists. Don't think it was exactly kid friendly...especially from the balcony. Thought it was pretty much a " cookiE cutter" musical.

POOR PERFORMANCES

Having seen wicked a couple times in Chicago a couple years ago, I was beyond excited to go again. This performance did not live up to prior shows. Singing felt off, acting wasn't great, not much chemistry. To be fair, I left after act 1 (because it was that bad) so it could've gotten better in the 2nd act. Just a disappointing experience.

NOT SO WICKED

Disjointed plot. Mumbling actors. Performace including intermission was over 3 hours. Much too long. I should have left after the first 30 minutes.

VERY DISAPPOINTED

Great night with friends and wife. The Music was production was great but the vocals. I swear I was watching it in a foreign language, nothing was understandable. When they were talking it was okay but the signing sounded like caterwauling. So very disappointed. Was looking so forward to it. but all in all it was just okay.

LEAD SINGER OFF TUNE! SO EMBARRASSING

Went to see the show Friday, March 29 2024. Alison Bailey as Glinda carried the whole show. She was magnificent. Most other cast - also great. But who let the absolutely tone deaf woman play Elphaba?! The singer playing Elphaba was off tune on nearly every song, it grated my ears and felt embarrassing to watch… the only song she got right was the duet with Fiyero (Jordan Litz, I believe). Everything else - a steaming disaster… what an embarrassment…. This was the first show I saw at the Bass, and I’m now much more skeptical of the quality of the venue…. I guess better see Broadway shows on Broadway.

What we thought

Enchanting brilliant TIMELESS

The performance of 'Defying Gravity' at the end of Act I will give you chills.

Almost 13 years after it's debut, you still can't go wrong with Wicked, a perfect adventure for the whole family! Eugene Lee's scenic design coupled with Susan Hilferty's costume artistry will have you engrossed in their magic throughout the production.
