When Dorothy triumphed over the Wicked Witch of the West in L.
Frank Baum's classic tale, we heard only her side of the story. But
what about her arch-nemesis, the mysterious witch? Where did she
come from? How did she become so wicked? And what is the true
nature of evil?
Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that
we will never look at Oz the same way again. "Wicked" is about a
land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class
citizens, Munchkinlanders seek the comfort of middle-class
stability and the Tin Man becomes a victim of domestic violence.
And then there is the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who
will grow up to be the infamous Wicked Witch of the West, a smart,
prickly and misunderstood creature who challenges all our
preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil.
