“Wicked” on Broadway: A Review

“Wicked” is the fifth longest-running musical on Broadway. It premiered in October 2003 at the Gershwin Theatre. It is one of the standard-bearers of Broadway – it is the fifth longest-running, surpassing “Les Misérables” on October 28, 2019, with its 6,681st performance. It is one of only three Broadway shows to gross over $1 billion (the other two being “The Phantom of the Opera” and “The Lion King”). It ranks second only behind the “Lion King”.

Buena Vista Restaurant & Bar

Villains of Broadway

Every story has its knight in shiny armor. The prince that slays the dragon, and saves the princess, rushes the bad guy and gets the fair lady from the train tracks, the one that saves the day! Raoul saves Christine, Hamilton gets all the fame and power, people all over Oz love Glinda, Simba becomes king, Cady dates Aaron. The list goes on. We understand them and we love them, but what about the bad guys? Regina? Scar? Jafar? Aaron Burr? The Wizard? The General from “The Book of Mormon”? It is not uncommon to sympathize with some of them, and quite often to even love them.
