West End Wicked Opens Tonight

West End Wicked Opens Tonight

This evening marks the greatly anticipated London opening for the immensely popular American musical Wicked at the Apollo Victoria Theatre.

Stateside, critics like The New York Times' Ben Brantley weren't overly impressed when it opened on Broadway in October 2003: "'Wicked' does not, alas, speak hopefully for the future of the Broadway musical," while others like Elysa Gardner of USA Today called it a "triumph," saying Wicked "juggles winning irreverence with thoughtfulness and heart."

Will the British critics call Wicked wonderful? We'll find out soon enough as the reviews come flying in.

This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
