How was your experience?
I really wanted to like this show & love the Pantages venue, but... Very accurate to the original movie, but some parts missing/edited out of this show. Production values a bit disappointing--only 2 flying monkies (who never flew)!! There must have been a dozen in Wicked at the Pantages. Why no crystal ball or hourglass?? The vidoe projected monkies & other projection affects also seemed a bit low-budget. The best effect was when Glinda the Good Witch appears for the first time. Disappointed in the painted 2-dimensional sets & costumes just okay. I really expect a lot more from Andrew Lloyd Webber. Good performances by all & great orchestra. We just all left the show feeling a bit letdown...
