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. The story of how these two unlikely friends become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for what Entertainment Weekly calls "the best musical of the decade." Learn More

This was a superb solo act, with an interesting and engrossing story, very good acting and well done character-switching.
I stayed interested the entire time, and the moral of the story was weaved in with the comedy, so it never felt preachy.
At the end, nearly the entire audience (the theatre was packed) gave Pidge a well-deserved standing ovation.
The act that precedes this performance ("Memphis on my Mind") was also quite good, especially the character-switching along with the corresponding southern accent-switching.
Pidge Meade’s 40 Pounds in 12 Weeks: A Love Story is part of The Marsh’s Festival of New Voices 2010.
Meade has appeared from coast to coast in everything from Shakespeare to Sondheim to really bad murder mystery dinner theatre. Favorite Bay Area roles include Sarah Brown in Guys and Dolls and the title role in _Mrs. Bob Cratchit’s Wild Christmas Binge. _
