My Christmas through theatre continues as last night I went to see Wicked in the west end. I absolutely loved the show and the story as it teaches us the importance of perception. How others perceive you determines how far you can get in life. Glinda was perceived as good from the moment she got on stage and therefore got her way her whole life. All she had to do was flick her hair and people came running to her side to do her bidding. Whereas Elphaba was perceived as bad from the moment she was born, due to her green skin. She was different and disliked and it made it easier for the wizard to twist the narrative on her. The show also highlights how difficult it is to change people’s perception of you, especially when you’re different, people are quick to believe the worst.
The show was spectacular, the storyline was great, and so were the cast. Definitely a show worth seeing, one that I hope to see again.
Thank you for reading.
