It's been called "a cultural phenomenon" (Variety) and has racked up more than 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tonys. Now's your chance to see Broadway's Wicked -- the untold story of the witches of Oz -- right here in San Jose. Long before Dorothy drops into Munchkinland, 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.

A mixed bag - as these types of things always are. I saw Program One - which had five one-acts. "Cello" was lovely and intriguing, "The Three Dumplings Go Bananas" had some fun stuff, but became repetitious and wore out its welcome - it could have been cut in half easily, the imaginative riff on Chekhov's "The Seagull" was clever - though I don't know how someone would feel about it if they weren't familiar with the source material, "Brainkill" was delicious and dark-yet-comic and "In Bed" was the richest piece on an emotional level. The show was marred by sounds of conversation from outside the theater, but for the most part, it's well worth the trip to tiny little Natoma Street.
