A little disappointed... 5 of us went 8/24/19, 8:00 show. All of us had a hard time hearing the words in the songs- it was plenty loud enough.... almost to loud - we all had a hard time comprehending the lyrics in the songs.
Maybe it was where we were seated? Anyway it made the show a bust... all the actors did a GREAT job and the sets were very nice. Also, the very end is kind of confusing... I won’t give it away, but all in all it was a fun girl’s night out.

SOUND QUALITY WAS BEYOND POOR
My wife and I have seen Wicked a number of times and I have no idea what happened today but the sound was just terrible. At one point during a song the entire cast got muted for a second. There was absolutely NO low end. No deep notes hit. Even the drums sounded anemic. The dialog was audible. Agree with someone else who posted on here: I used my Apple Watch's sound meter and was registering 60-65 generally and song climax and finales where the entire cast was singing hit 80-85...it's quite soft for a show.
My daughter usually wears earplugs at shows but didn't need them at all.

GREAT SHOW - POOR SOUND
The show itself was really good. The players did great job and worked well together. The lighting and props were Broadway quality. The one major flaw was the sound for vocals. In many of the songs, the words were not clear; in particular when singing higher notes. I thought perhaps it was just me but a few other people noticed this as well. In a Broadway play, the lyrics are a critical component to telling the story and unfortunately, some of the story was missed for Wicked at Playhouse Square in Cleveland on Sunday, January 2 '22.

WHAT..?! MANY TIMES THE VOCALS COULD NOT BE HEARD. 7TH ROW AND VOLUME WAS ANEMIC. BRING YOUR HEARING AIDS.
Just came back from seeing the show. Acting and stage props were great!! BUT, many of us were REALLY struggling to hear the dialogue and singing. I even took a peak at my SPL meter on my phone and in "LOUD" sections, it was about 80 db. That's casual conversation level. No impact at all. It sounded like it was through one speaker with no subs. Rather disappointing after paying that much for great seats in the very center, 7 rows from the stage. Whenever the percussionist used the shells, it was louder from the pit than all the music and singing, 7 rows back!!! If they're trying to keep the audience quiet, it's working because we're all struggling to hear the vocals in the first place. I mentioned it to my wife during the intermission and surrounding audience turned and agreed.

TECHNICAL DIFFICULTIES FRIDAY 7/6/12
The show started thirty or so minutes later than scheduled due
to technical difficulties, but I wish they would have completely
fixed the problem before they started the show.
Throughout the entire show there were mic problems with
mainly the instruments and volume control, but there were also a
couple vocal mic issues. The first few seconds of As Long As
You're Mine were cut off sadly.
I paid $190 for our two tickets, so I'm sad that the show wasn't
the best it could've been.
Technical difficulties aside the show was great! Glinda was
hilarious and all of her quirks were absolutely perfect. Madam
Morrible was splendid as well. Elphaba had the capability to be
amazing, but the changes she made to her songs shouldn't have
been made. Maybe she just had a bad night. Fiyero started off
iffy with Dancing Through Life, but he finished strong. He was
perfect in As Long As You're Mine.
Basically it was worth seeing, and it would've been more
enjoyable had I not known what to look for.

PRETTY MUCH COOKIE CUTTER
Sets were great but the story and action were focused too much on long scenes that featured the signing of the soloists. Don't think it was exactly kid
friendly...especially from the balcony. Thought it was pretty much a " cookiE cutter" musical.

Having seen wicked a couple times in Chicago a couple years ago, I was beyond excited to go again. This performance did not live up to prior shows. Singing felt off, acting wasn't great, not much chemistry. To be fair, I left after act 1 (because it was that bad) so it could've gotten better in the 2nd act. Just a disappointing experience.
The performance of 'Defying Gravity' at the end of Act I will give you chills.
Almost 13 years after it's debut, you still can't go wrong with Wicked, a perfect adventure for the whole family! Eugene Lee's scenic design coupled with Susan Hilferty's costume artistry will have you engrossed in their magic throughout the production.
