The show itself was really good. The players did great job and worked well together. The lighting and props were Broadway quality. The one major flaw was the sound for vocals. In many of the songs, the words were not clear; in particular when singing higher notes. I thought perhaps it was just me but a few other people noticed this as well. In a Broadway play, the lyrics are a critical component to telling the story and unfortunately, some of the story was missed for Wicked at Playhouse Square in Cleveland on Sunday, January 2 '22.

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.

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.

The music was uninspiring. The story line felt as if the playwright got bored and slapped/crammed everything else together in the second half. One of the main characters was on tune only about 75% of the time. The theater was uncomfortably warm the entire performance. For what I paid and the 5 hours in the car to get there, the only redeeming aspect of the experience is the time I got to spend with my son and daughter in law. Parents….if you don’t mind a play opening with adultery, a father who hates his daughter because the color of her skin and the subjugation, manipulation and dehumanizing of men the entire play by all means take your children.

This “musical” is totally awful. Ridiculous plot,
obnoxious characters, and cast members who
scream instead of sing. I would have left at
intermission, had I not paid a fortune for the
tickets. There are three positives: excellent pit
orchestra, beautiful costumes, and gorgeous
sets. These few good points don’t make up for
the fact that “Wicked” is a worthless show.
Don’t waste your time and money.

WASTE OF MONEY IN DALLAS
Can’t even bring in a drink to deal with this waste of time and money. Musical are ridiculous and so are all of the rules and restrictions at Fair Park Music Hall, never going back there again, ever.
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.
