GREAT PERFOMANCES RUINED BY HORRIBLE SOUND PRODUCTION

I cannot say how disappointing this show was to partake in, after attending many others in other venues over the years. I brought my 7 year-old granddaughter as a first experience for her in theatre, having heard great reviews of this show. This left her with no positive impression of what theatre actually is and that great feeling of being part of a live performance. The sound production was beyond lacking. 1 - Quality of sound - tinny at best, no low end. 2.- Mix - ALL dialog overshadowed by any music, so only audible when orchestra not playing, and then barely audible. 3. - Notably, the speaker clusters are all front of stage, with no side or rear supplemental audio beyond two sound effects during the show that came from a rear speaker. Suggestion - It isn't hard to walk around a room to get a feel for how the acoustics are going to respond and understand what adjustments are needed to balance the experience for the audience and Dialog vs Feature numbers vs background music. If this was done here, it should be done again, as the resulting experience has left me with 'not returning' as my conclusion. Show goers beware - you are paying to strain ears and eventually be 'bored' when you can't make any sense of the dialog, especially if you haven't seen this show elsewhere. Apologies to what seemed a great cast and stage production for these comments. Sound Production: F- I will not attend another event here.

FORGETTABLE

The music was uninspiring. The story line felt as if the playwright got bored and slapped/crammed everything else together in the second half. One of the main characters was on tune only about 75% of the time. The theater was uncomfortably warm the entire performance. For what I paid and the 5 hours in the car to get there, the only redeeming aspect of the experience is the time I got to spend with my son and daughter in law. Parents….if you don’t mind a play opening with adultery, a father who hates his daughter because the color of her skin and the subjugation, manipulation and dehumanizing of men the entire play by all means take your children.

DON’T GO

This “musical” is totally awful. Ridiculous plot, obnoxious characters, and cast members who scream instead of sing. I would have left at intermission, had I not paid a fortune for the tickets. There are three positives: excellent pit orchestra, beautiful costumes, and gorgeous sets. These few good points don’t make up for the fact that “Wicked” is a worthless show. Don’t waste your time and money.

WASTE OF MONEY IN DALLAS

Can’t even bring in a drink to deal with this waste of time and money. Musical are ridiculous and so are all of the rules and restrictions at Fair Park Music Hall, never going back there again, ever.

WICKED PERFORMANCE SOUND SYSTEM

I have seen Wicked four times. The first three times gave me goose bumps. This time was disappointment from beginning to end. The problem was not the performers. They were OK, but the sound system was poor and poorly managed. The performers were often difficult to hear and understand. They were often drowned out by the volume of the music. And none of the performance was near the volume level of the first three times I attended. I assume the sound system is old and antiquated there but needs to be updated ASAP. To be honest, in my row of seats, I observed multiple people watching something else on their phones. I assure you that was not happening at any other performance I have seen. Even the performance in Wichita was immensely better. We traveled for this show and bought six tickets for other people. Kind of embarrassing.

THE WORST PLAY EVER

I paid a lot of money to see this play in Chicago. I was expecting the best choreography, special effects, the best actos and actresses. All I had was a poor performance, very basic play. I watched videos from this play in other countries and those videos were amazing but not in this country. So sad. 👎👎👎👎👎

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.
