This is a bit off topic, since there's no forum for theater. Non the less, if anyone gets the chance to go see "Wicked," the original Broadway production, that is now on tour, I would highly recommend it. It's one of the best productions that I have seen.

It's the story of what really happened in OZ behind the scenes, and how everyone became the way they were.

It is more for adults then children, but I think older kids, like 12 and up would appreciate it as well.

I liked it so much, that I might go back again while it's in my area. Tickets are expensive though. Mine was around 69 dollars, and that's mid range. However, unlike shit like "Rent," this production put a real effort into costumes and their special stage effects.

Is it a production currently only touring in America or other places as well? I am very interested. Thank you for getting back to me. Sorry for the short answer, in a rush.

After the success that the show had in New York City; I believe that they have put together several touring shows. I have seen clips from a British production, and even a Japenese one.

Granted, I can not vouch for the quality of all of them, but the one touring the U.S, is fantatic. If I said that it is the ORIGINAL broadway production, then I was mistaken, since the show is still playing on Broadway at this time.

Just yesterday, I was browsing through the program that I received at the play, and found a card in it, that the part of the Wicked Witch wasn't being played by the regular actress, for the performance that I have seen.
Non the less, she was awesome, and I would have never known that she wasn't the regular player, if I didn't find that card.

I'm almost definitely going to go see it again, while it's in my area.

I'm off to look it up and touring places and dates. If they play in Quebec or near here, I will gladly take my girlfriend to see it. I'm always up for a good performance, and you seem quite enthusiastic about it. Sounds like it would be somethign to definetly look into. *Off to look into it!*
