Anyone ever read Wicked? I'm reading it right now & think it's kind of weird. Did you like it? Have you seen the play? I don't think I could see the play now, lol.

I read the book and I didn't like it nearly as much as I expected. The ending was rather...lackluster.

I've been to the musical though, 3 times, and absolutely loved it. The story came together far better than the book and the music was very enjoyable I would suggest seeing it if you get the chance.

The book is different. I'm fascinated by the concept, but sometimes got a little lost in the twisty-ness of the writing. Ditto with the sequel. I love the musical and play the soundtrack frequently. They had to simplify some of the more complex plot elements from the book to make the musical work, but it came out beautifully. I was lucky to see the original cast; Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth were amazing.

I read the book and have seen the play twice. The play is different than the book by far, especially with the twist at the end of the play

I love the musical. I have the CD playing in my car right now

I really wanted to see the play when it was in the area recently, but it was so expensive. It made me horribly upset.

A friend kept wanting to take me to the Broadway show, and I always said, "No thanks, I didn't like the book." Stupid me, I missed an opportunity to see Kristin Chenoweth.

I read the book before I saw the musical. I agree with you--the book is REALLY weird, and pretty dark (I don't know if you've gotten to the part where they visit a seedy sex club, but that scene most definitely didn't make it into the musical ).

The book is also extremely different from the show. I read once that the musical was an adaptation of the book for "fourteen year old girls," and that makes sense. I prefer the show--it's so much happier!

My daughter wanted to see Wicked, having read the book, when it first came out on Broadway. Tickets were $300. We thus spent $900 on tickets, plus all travel from the southeast USA to New York. (We also saw Spamalot that weekend..amazing). However, I have NEVER spent that much on theater tickets before or since....but I can honestly say IT WAS WORTH IT. The play was AMAZING. Fun memories for life. If you are a big Wizard of Oz fan, as we are, it added that twist for a whole new story. GO SO THE PLAY...you will never have a better time. (and it will NOT cost you that much now!!!)
