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

The actors of the Boxcar Playhouse deconstructed their performance space to terrific effect. The audience was compelled to move around to accommodate their movement, finding itself interestingly implicated in the drama "on stage." The minimalist sets and costumes were evocative and, frankly, charming. The play itself was good--I especially appreciated the interpolated quotations from Brecht's diary--though the bathetic finale felt a little over the top. All in all, wonderful! I will recommend it to friends.
“Don’t you feel the pressure to change? Your neighbor has become one. And so has your wife. With their beautiful horns, rough skin, and cacophonous trumpeting—don’t you think they are just a little bit better than you?”
Physical transformations, ideological conformity, and that nagging feeling you might never ever fit in come together in this sometimes hard-hitting, but always playful work of art.
