‘Wicked’ comes to St. Louis Fabulous Fox Theatre, a Triumphant Return

Wicked Continues at The Fabulous Fox Theatre Through January 3, 2016...

By Steve Connelly
Special to TodaysSeniorsNetwork Entertainment

An admission is in order…this was my first time to see ‘Wicked’, the tremendous musical story of ‘Oz before Dorothy’, now playing at The Fabulous Fox Theatre in St. Louis through January 3, 2016.

Another admission—I am thrilled that I was able to see this outstanding production which has been the phenonomen that continues to draw returnees, and has become a ‘must see’ for those who have not yet seen it.

The show offers major production spectacles that is befitting the always-wonderful setting of The Fabulous Fox, but even more importantly, provide the backdrop to showcase the talents of the lead performers, Elphaba, who will in ‘Oz’ become the ‘Wicked Witch’ , played to perfection by , Mary Kate Morrissey and Glinda, played by Amanda Jane Cooper, who, although Glinda will be ‘The Good Witch’ in ‘Oz’ is really secondary in the story of ‘Wicked’.  

The show, after all, is not entitled ‘Goodness’, and it is what it is—the almost semi-tragic story of the Green-Skinned Elphaba and how she was to become the ‘evil’ witch.

Actually, throughout, she is much more likeable than Glinda, who must transcend from a somewhat cute, charming albeit slightly ditzy youthful Blonde that had she been in the real world might be considered a candidate to have become a ‘Trophy Wife.’  And, while Elphaba has a logical progression into her character, Glinda becomes a ‘mature’ and judgmental counter to Elphaba.


I watched the audience reaction with interest during the show.  At intermission, I was talking to a women and her daughter who said they had travelled from Central Illinois—a more than three-hour drive—to see the show for the first time, and they were delighted that they did.  It was a Christmas present from the Mother, and bother were dressed in green blouses.  

While neither had colored their skin green, they did have green eye-liner, an indication of the overwhelming attraction of ‘Wicked’—the affection for the story of a magical land, and the appeal of Elphaba that makes this a ‘must see’ for the Holiday Season.  And, I am glad that I can now join the legion of fans for this show, which never will lose its allure.

WICKED makes awaited return to The Fabulous Fox Theatre December 9, 2015 - January 3, 2016


Click here to order tickets 


Back by “popular” demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 100 international awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).


Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - musical in a long time" (USA Today).
