The musical Wicked is about the two famous witches in the Wizard of Oz, Glinda the good witch
and Elphaba the wicked witch of the west. The question of the story is was Glinda so good and was Elphaba so bad?
How did they become what we know them to be when Dorothy showed up in Oz?
I first heard of Wicked when my sister and I went to the 2003 Broadway on Broadway concert.
Idina Menzel, the original Elphaba and my favorite actress, sang a beautiful song called "The Wizard and I". After that,
I got the cast album and was hooked!
My favorite part of the show is when Elphaba sings Defying Gravity (hence the site title). Both the song itself
and the whole flying effect is amazing!
