    Has anyone heard the radio ads for Wicked? They have sped up "Popular" and "Defying Gravity" to near Chipmunk speed. From what I could tell, it was the Kristen Chenowith version of "Popular" but I don't think it was the Idina Menzel version of "Defying Gravity.

    Sooooooo excited. Our tickets have been ordered. I really cannot wait.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.



    May the Gumballs Be with You...Always.

      I saw Wicked for the first time almost a year ago... I saw it with Idena Menzel (the original Elphaba) and she was great. She was also in RENT but I didn't see the original cast of RENT. It's not the same when you buy the CD and listen to it and then go see it because you have expectations of the show being like the CD was... at least that's what happens for me... but anyway, Idena Menzel was amazing... I won't give anything away for any of y'all that haven't seen it, but there is one scene that was amazing and it gave me goosebumps all over. I think Wicked is one of my favorite musicals of all time. Right now it's playing at the Pantageus in LA but I wasn't able to get tickets before they sold out. Anyway... Ya...

        What she said. We saw it last year with Idina and my husband and I now have an enormous crush on her.

        I started crying during the trailer for Rent. Can't wait to see her (and Taye) in that.

        17 more days.....Wicked at the Pantages!!! 17!! WooHOO!!!

          Victoria and I both read the book when it first came out. We'll be seeing it at The Pantages in Hollywood July 9. Can't wait!

                Bought the CD, read the book, went back and re-read the original Wizard of Oz for comparison. Love them all.

                I'm just bummed because the show isn't coming to Phoenix until Aug 2006...

                  My favorite as well. :love: My daughter and her best friend bought the piano music to Wicked, so they can master it for the school talent show next winter. It's a little dorky, but at least they're not doing crack....ooops, I'm in Oregon, we do meth.

                        Okay, I loved the book when it came out. Then my roommate introduced me to the musical when her musical theatre class did their cabaret based on it. It was a great show (these guys ate as close to pros as you can get without actually getting paid)! The only problem I had was that I hated the new Fiyero character in the musical! He turned into this Rico Suave that I didn't think Elphie would fall for. Oh well, the music's great and I still love it. Can't wait till it comes to Sacramento since I'm going to miss it this season in LA...

                          The music.. amazing. I am seeing it with my Dad and Brother when we go to California in 8 days! I can't wait to see it. My friends have been ranting about it ever since they saw it.

                              Wow, I'm glad I read this thread, because I have the book and the CD and I was really struggling to figure out how the CD related to story elements in the book.

                              I don't recall Boq becoming a tin man, and I thought the whole thing about Fiyero being the scarecrow was just in Elfie's imagination? But then again, I did the book-on-tape, so maybe I didn't hear some critical bit?

                              Unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe...

                                  This is for everyone going to see 'Wicked' without me.

                                    Morrigoon, I also am a bit confused as to how the book relates to the musical- it seems much more layered that the musical could be- but my sister (who saw it in new york before idena menzel left the cast) assures me that the musical is every bit as interesting as the book. I have to wait over a year to find out- it doesn't come to minneapolis until July 2006!

                                    I haven't gotten to the part about Boq, but I figured out the Fiyero bit from listening to the CD.
