Who has seen one of Broadway’s Most Popular Show Wicked the Musical? I know a few who has seen it a few times and it looks like we’ll be watching it again as well. We saw it at Segerstrom Center for the Arts in Costa Mesa a few days back and it was simply a must see.. not only once, but multiple times. The props, costumes and performances were outstanding.
Wicked the musical has won over 100 international awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards and once you see it, you’ll be all praised too. You will be glued to it from start to end, the show was very engaging. And Emily Koch who played Elphaba nailed the part and hit every high note that I was just in awe. Like, why can’t I have a powerful voice like that comes to mind.

Wicked the musical runs for approximately 2 hours and 30 minutes long with a 15 minute intermission. It is recommended for the 8 and up but our kinder girl enjoyed it. There were a few scary parts for her, but she understood it wasn’t real life and wanted to see it again.
“Something has changed within me
Something is not the same
I’m through with playing by
The rules of someone else’s game
Too late for second-guessing
Too late to go back to sleep
It’s time to trust my instincts
Close my eyes
It’s time to try defying gravity
I think I’ll try defying gravity
And you can’t pull me down”
