REVIEWS

Wicked is steeped in talent.  There are visual and verbal jokes aplenty throughout this thorned re-creation of Baum's enchanted land, where Glinda and Elphaba get to know each other long before a little brat named Dorothy shows up. The contrast between the young women, who wind up as reluctant roommates at sorcery school, is used to examine a society that values surface over substance, the illusion of doing good over the genuinely noble act. It goes without saying that you don't have to squint to find parallels with a certain contemporary Western nation in which artful presidential photo ops win more votes than legislative change. The director of ''Wicked'' is the understandably in-demand Joe Mantello, Wicked's top-flight designers include Susan Hilferty (costumes), Kenneth Posner (lighting) and Eugene Lee, whose sets are ingeniously arranged technoscape of wheels and cogs overseen by the wondrous metal dragon that rests atop the proscenium.
