Emily Koch as Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West)

Wicked whisked it’s magic for Houston audiences opening night last week and it was the kind of production that brought everyone to their feet. Wicked- is a cleverly written, imperfect tale of good vs. evil and a story of friendship, envy, belonging and love. It’s also a tale that touches on the not so subtle themes of “Feminism” with its strong heroine characters and “Colorism”- as we watch Elphaba struggle with acceptance because she is the color green. What I enjoyed about the story of Wicked is that it is a true Universal story and within the magical, green World of Oz, there lies a defining character that truly resonates with everyone.
