Variety called Wicked "a cultural phenomenon," and it's been working its magic on critics and audiences alike both on Broadway and around the world. Now the winner of more than 50 major awards, Wicked is flying back to the San Diego Civic Theatre. Long before Dorothy drops in to Munchkinland from Kansas, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One -- born with emerald-green skin -- is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The story of how these two unlikely friends become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for what USA Today called "the most complete -- and completely satisfying -- musical in a long time." With this pre-sale offer, you can get access to great seats before they go on sale to the general public on August 22. Learn More

At the end of the performance, I felt like I had an enjoyable night at the theater. Shakespeare is really tough for any actor and most of the actors handled it very capably. My only real complaint would be the actors portraying the slaves Dromio. It was just very painfully obvious that they were trying too hard to be funny in this role. Everything about their acting choices felt very forced and unnatural. While the audience laughed and enjoyed it, it was just very annoying for myself to watch. Actually, some of the comedy in this production felt very forced. But like I said, at the end of the performance, I actually enjoyed it for what it was and felt that a lot of performances were very well don.
The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare’s earliest and shortest plays, is the classic tale of two sets of twins accidentally separated at birth by a shipwreck. In this farcical comedy, their lives come crashing back together through a series of wild mishaps, mistaken identity, accusations, madness and confusion.
Shakespeare’s play has been adapted for opera, stage, screen, and musical theatre.
