Wicked continues making circles around the country and now it’s back in La-La Land. First things first, the show’s got some impressive credentials : the NewYork Times calls Wicked “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster,” and when it first played the Center in 2006, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy(c) and three Tony Awards(c), and according to OC Register, Wicked “is hugely entertaining” and “brilliantly crafted”.
They indicate age suitability at “Teen and up”, but it’s really up to the parents. We watched this show on Broadway a year and a half ago with our then five-year-old, and while she was properly scared of the dragon head, she thoroughly enjoyed the show. We will take all our kids (the oldest is 9) to see it again.
