Let us be glad and let us be grateful that Wicked has returned to Broadway after a year and a half of being closed due to COVID-19.

Before Dorothy drops into Oz, Galinda (Ginna Claire Mason) and Elphaba (Lindsay Pearce/Jennifer DiNoia) – later known as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West – have a complicated history. From the time they met in college to the time of the Wicked Witch’s demise, their friendship goes through trials and tribulations.

Being a staple of New York theatre since 2004, Wicked’s closure was devastating, so its return has been more than welcome. Pearce made her Broadway debut just two weeks before Broadway’s official closing and came back to reopen the show but was quickly injured and temporarily replaced by DiNoia.

Final say: It’s great to see both of them, isn’t it? ★★★★★
