I am so excited to see that the musical Wicked will finally be coming to theaters in a few years. I never got to see it on stage, but I always wanted too. I have read the books, memorized the soundtrack, and seen a recorded low definition of the Musical. I think it's a wonderful story, and can't wait to see it on the Big Screen! http://broadwayworld...t-Soon-20121213

I saw this on stage with my wife almost 6 or 7 years ago in Tampa. It was a great show, we had a lot of fun. I'm actually surprised it has taken this long for a movie version to be made. My wife and I will most definitely be there day one to see it once it opens.

I've seen the tour 3-4 times. The first time blew me away--you'll believe a witch can fly! I've also seen the low-def recording, it is pretty bad. I wish they would film the stage version with the original cast.

Interesting., I surprised my Wife at Christmas with tickets to Wicked in Match 2007 in Tampa -- we were at Disney for Spring Break so it was an easy trip. She had read the book and she/kids had been listening to the soundtrack non-stop for about a year. We also went back a couple years ago when it was more local

I would love to see a filmed performance (of a full staging) on Great Performances. Or at least have the traveling production come through this area when it's convenient for me to attend. :)

My only exposure to Wicked have been episodes of Glee. Then I did a little research on Idina Menzel and was astonished by her vocals and performances. Don't know if she'll be part of this, but really looking forward to it.

The book and the play, to me, are so wildly structurally different I have a hard time relating the first time I saw the play I thought it was kind of a let down.

After the huge opening for the James Franco "Oz" prequel, greenlighting this was a no-brainer. I hope that Universal teams up with Warner Bros, though, so that they can use all of the copyrighted "Wizard of Oz" imagery that the Disney prequel didn't have access to.
