I saw Wicked the other day. The Lion King was the only other musical I’ve ever seen live and it was really artsy and the songs were so deep, despite it being based on a Disney movie for kids … so I was unpleasantly surprised at how ditzy and targeted-at-children Wicked was (the whole first half is full of every cheesy teen-comedy trope in the book). I really expected something with a bit more substance. So it was just okay. But I do think that this one scene where the main character discovers her wickedness makes up for the rest of it — it’s the one memorable song, the singing was just flawless and I got many butterflies.
