From the famed composer Stephen Schwartz comes the musical fantasy Wicked, starring the effervescent Kristin Chenoweth, Idina Menzel, and Joel Grey. An inspired reimagining of the relationship between two characters from The Wizard of Oz -- the good witch Glinda and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West -- Wicked makes the most of the outsize talents of its compser and its star performers.

I loved this show! The music and lyrics are amazing! Idina totally deserved her Tony award! Everyone should watch this show in light of our current political situation too!
I grew up loving Wizard of Oz... but Wicked blows Oz out of this world! I saw the show in London and fell in love with the music, the characters, everything! I still get the goose bumbs when listening to the music. Defying Gravity is one the most moving performances/songs--it'll leave you breathless.
My sister fell in love with the musical "Wicked" after seeing it performed in San Diego, so I purchased the Cast Recording as a Christmas gift. I don't think she's stopped listening to it since then! The music is positively addictive, and the performances are exceptional. Kristin Chenoweth's performance of "Popular" is both hilarious and amazing. I was quite impressed by how clever the lyrics are, and the music is incredible. It's difficult to understand the storyline just from the songs, but that's only to be expected with a musical. The liner notes are filled with pictures from the production, along with the lyrics. I highly recommend this CD!
This CD has a stunning array of musical numbers from musical. The music is amazing, and it paints a picture by itself. I have seen the play several times, and I listen to the music quite frequently. The singers have amazing voices that really bring out the characters and make the story seem more real. Anyone who is a fan of Wicked, Kristin Chenoweth, or any of the other singers should definitely buy this product. This music is a personal favorite of mine, and it has songs that are uplifting and songs that are sad. Most of the songs on here are beautiful and perfect to listen to even if you haven't seen the show.
I absolutely love this album. I listen to it almost every day. I wish I had seen the actual show but this is close to it. Idina and Kristen are simply wonderful! An unbelievably addictive CD. And it was very nice to hear Joel Grey's unique voice. I'm in love with this CD and now I'm reading the book. You gotta get this!
I loved Wicked the book, so I thought I'd check out the soundtrack and I am so glad I did. It is a great CD; it has amazing vocals. I really enjoy this CD.
Close your eyes, lean back and you are...over the rainbow- all the way to that magical place we call Broadway!!! Nothing beats a great recording of the original cast ! Brava!
This CD is great; you feel like you are there, watching the show, while listening to it. The artists are beyond talented and protray their emotions and characters very well through the songs. There are songs on here that everyone can identify with in real life (Defying Gravity, especially) at some point. I am going to see the musical for the first time this summer, and ordered this CD to listen to the songs in advance. It was a great purchase and has made me even more excited to see it live!
Wicked should be in everyone's automobile, home, computer. Recommended to young and old. lessons to be learned. Good music to hear. Inspirations for the soul.
This soundtrack is honestly one of the best I've ever listened to. It hasn't left my stereo for over a month and I love it. I think anyone who remotely like musical theatre should buy this!
NO other show on the Great White Way can top Wicked. It is an AMAZING musical and I would do anything to see it in New York City. The first night I heard this cast recording, I played it at least twenty times (including when I listened to it when I went to bed). Idina Menzel is outstanding as Elphaba (her best role yet) and Kristen Chenoweth glistens like glitter as Glinda. As great as she is "Rent"(probably the best show on Broadway), Idina outdoes herself with "Wicked" and I definately think she deserved the Tony Award for this performance. The score is absolutely beautiful and the lyrics have moved me like no other show. I am sure that the show will stay and last on Broadway for many years to come, and maybe someday it will be made into an award winning smash hit on the silver screen. "Wicked" is an incredible, touching, and inspiring musical and I will never stop listening to this CD.
i juts bought this cd AND I LOVE IT. it is so wicked awesome i love all the songs the singers have such great voices that fit their characters well :)
"Wicked", is by far the best musical since "Millie". I hope, and believe that "Wicked" will do very well at the Tony's this year, although I haven't heard the nominations yet.
Wicked is by far one of the best Broadway soundtracks of all time. It won a Grammy! Not many Broadway shows have had that honor before. Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth are absoluetly fabulous. The show is amazing right along with its music. Top songs: "The Wizard and I" "What Is This Feeling?" "Popular" and "Defying Gravity". This soundtrack is incredible. Your mouth will reach the ground after getting one listen to it.
great score go see the play lots of twists and turns
"Wicked" has been nominated for the Tony's for Best Musical, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Actor!!! WE ALL CAN SEE WHY!!!!!
I can't remember listening to a cd as good as this. It's awesome and I'm in love with it. I can't wait to go see the play!
I first bought the music in Chicago and fell in love with it, so I decided to go see the show too. It was WONDERFUL!!!! I love Wicked and I hope everyone else does too!
Love it! Love It! Love it! Need I say more...
Idina Menzel has a powerful voice!! I love the soundtrack for Wicked, Defying Gravity has to be the best song ever! Kristin Chenoweth is amazing!! Stephen Schwartz made beautiful lyrics and music. This is the best musical ever!!! Wicked Rocks!!!!!
See the show, and then buy the CD thru Barnes & Noble. The two witches and Tye Diggs were superb!
