FAIR NIGHT OUT

Saw the show in Boston tonight. Show was fine. Sound mix was poor and distracting. Gah-linda's mannerisms were spot on and Elphaba had a lovely voice. Show runs a wee bit long for my taste. Your millage may vary.

GREAT SHOW

Amazing show. Awesome voices and talent. One thing. I had good orchestra seats in the fifth row but on the aisle. All night long I could see stage hands behind the set. Not good.

WICKED (TOURING) IN SAN JOSE

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. Disappointing!

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.

SADLY DISAPPOINTED

This was my 4th time to see Wicked. I was surprised at the lack luster energy from Glinda. The Popular song was terrible…her performance was nothing to the hilarious performances from every other Glinda I have seen. Her voice was weak.. She ruined that song and the whole meaning of the girly scene. ..no passion or desire to even make the audience laugh. i spent more for my ticket to see this than all the rest and I left feeling disappointed. I heard many others saying the same thing. Fiyero voice was beneath being able to carry that kind of role. Zero charisma. Elphaba was average. Over all , way below average. but i didnt get one single goose bump. My advice is there needs to be much more rehearsal or replacement for Glinda and Fiyero.

What we thought

enchanting Brilliant TIMELESS

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.
