Commentaires : Cette version proposée au Colosseum est une magnifique version du musical d'Elton John. Tout est au rendez-vous: qualité sonore, perfection des interprètes, musicalité de la langue allemande et scénographie magnifique. Le dynamisme de ce spectacle est impressionnant: lors de certaine chansons comme par exemple 'Eine Pyramide mehr' (Another Pyramid) on reste figé!
Cette série au Colosseum sera prolongée par un "German Tour" qui va durer de novembre 2005 à mai 2007!

Commentaires longs: A Broadway revival opened at the original theatre, now re-named Richard Rodgers Theatre on March 23, 1995 and closed on July 14, 1996 after 548 performances. It was directed by Des McAnuff and choreographed by Wayne Cilento. Matthew Broderick starred as Finch, and Rosemary was played by Megan Mullally. In a pre-recorded performance, Walter Cronkite was the Book Voice. One of the later replacements for Mullally was Broderick's future wife, Sarah Jessica Parker. The wardrobe was designed by Susan Hilferty and is on display at the Costume World Broadway Collection in Pompano Beach, Florida.
A national tour of "How To Succeed" ran beginning in Baltimore in May 1996 and ended in Milwaukee in June of 1997. Other stops included Sacramento, Portland, and Seattle. The national tour cast featured Ralph Macchio as J. Pierrepont Finch, Shauna Hicks (Rosemary Pilkington), Richard Thomsen (J.B. Biggley), Pamela Blair (Hedy LaRue), and Roger Bart (Bud Frump). Both Machhio and the prodcution played to favorable reviews.

Commentaires : This was a completely re-written version, with many changes from the version that ran for just three months in the West End in 1979. The writer-director, Des McAnuff, had softened the story of the young boy who loses all his senses when , at the age of four, he witnesses his father killing his mother’s lover. Unable to communicate, abused by his family and the town louts, he somehow becomes a pinball wizard. Eventually he recovers his senses and develops into a messianic superstar. At the end of the show he returns to the bosom of his family. The production was notable for many stunning stage and lighting effects.

Die-hard Who fans complained that this version removed all the passion, fire and rage of the original, written at the time of Woodstock and the Vietnam War, when the only solution to the ills of society was to drop out. However, this version had opened to ecstatic reviews on Broadway in 1993 and ran for 899 performances . This spectacular London revival received very mixed notices, although there were rave notices for newcomer Paul Keating in the title role. It came off after just under a year, with a considerable financial loss - but shortly after it closed it won three Olivier Awards (Outstanding Musical, Best Director and Best Lighting).

Presse : “'Wicked' does not, alas, speak hopefully for the future of the Broadway musical.” Ben Brantley for New York Times

“It's such a 'Wicked' waste of talent.” Howard Kissel for New York Daily News

“The most complete, and completely satisfying, new musical I've come across in a long time.” Elysa Gardner for USA Today

"Overproduced, overblown, confusingly dark and laboriously ambitious jumble." Linda Winer for Newsday

"Far too arch and sophisticated for children...lacks... sophistication and wit that would make it palatable for adults." Frank Scheck for Hollywood Reporter

"The best thing about 'Wicked' is its stars, whose talents cast a powerful spell." Roma Torre for NY1

"Lavish, ambitious and problematic." Michael Kuchwara for Associated Press

Commentaires : The London show was tailored slightly for a British audience, with some changes in dialogue, choreography, and special effects. The London production celebrated its fifth anniversary on September 27th 2011 with a special curtain call featuring former West End cast members. After Idina Menzel's three-month run she was replaced by Kerry Ellis.
Other Elphabas have included Alexia Khadime and Rachel Tucker; with Dianne Pilkington and Louise Dearman as Glindas; and Oliver Tompsett, Lewis Bradley, Lee Mead (Fiyeros), and Desmond Barrit, Sam Kelly, Clive Carter (Wizards). In both New York and London the show initially received mixed reviews, but it seems to be a critic-proof show, and has had a phenomenal world-wide box office success.
Presse : NICHOLAS DE JONGH du THE EVENING STANDARD: "Remarkable kaleidoscope of magical shocks, surprises and sensations. Wicked works like a dream."
PAUL TAYLOR for THE INDEPENDENT: "I enjoyed very little...The songs sound like dozens you've heard before. The acting is, by and large, appalling. "
MICHAEL BILLINGTON du THE GUARDIAN: "Efficient, knowing and highly professional but more like a piece of industrial product than something that genuinely touches the heart or mind."
CHARLES SPENCER du THE DAILY TELEGRAPH: "Witty, enjoyable...No one could accuse Wicked of being a great musical – indeed at times it's a bit of a mess - but it proves far more enjoyable than I had dared to hope"
BENEDICT NIGHTINGALE du THE TIMES: "Songs bang out, along with iffy lyrics and not-so-witty dialogue…I’d rather see The Wizard of Oz 20 times than this ersatz show once."
