For those who don't know, I was a musical convert after visiting London Town. Since then, when a musical pops by in Kuala Lumpur, we make an effort to visit. With only The King and I and Mamma Mia having only arrived on shore in the last years, our journey continued with West Side Story when they came to Brisbane shores and finally Wicked.
While we had crap seats for West Side Story, I thought the cast couldn't pull off the heavy Latin accent, with a lot of words lost in thin air. The set was simple but impressive how they sync so well.
Wicked was simply in a world of it's own.
With so many different sets throughout the two hours, the friendship between the funny, love and hate Galinda and the Green Elphaba, it never fails to entertain you throughout the whole show. Despite the understudy of Elphaba performing (she was kind of petite and her voice too controlled at most times), this is one of the best we have watched.
If you want the best seats, don't go further than rows G-J. The experience is a whole different thing altogether when you can see the facial expressions of the cast when they perform.
QPac is quite strict about the use of cameras so a sneak peak for you all.
Due to the floods, their shows have been extended so if budget allows, go catch the show!
