Sarofim Hall at the Hobby Center | Houston, TX
Wicked on Broadway tells the story of Elphaba, the hated Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the lovely good witch from The Wizard of Oz. Wicked delivers a fresh and somewhat surprising take on a well-loved tale and is suitable for all ages. The underlying themes [staying true to oneself, doing what’s right even if it is difficult etc.] are woven throughout the story and are more relevant than ever in today’s social environment. The music is inspirational and the message is powerful. It is impossible to see Wicked on Broadway without becoming emotionally attached to at least one of the characters. So come and see it now at the Sarofim Hall at The Hobby Center.
The fact that movies are filmed out of sequence means that the actors might not have any idea what the finished product is like until they sit down and watch it at the premier. They’re immediately disconnected from their story, whereas theatre actors are completely in tune with the narrative they’re trying to perform. They understand the way the tension builds, and how that tension builds the story forward. They get to perform their scenes in chronological order, with a strong understanding of what has to happen in every scene to effectively tell the story. This connection to the narrative makes for an arguably more truthful performance, which gives you, the audience, a more true and realistic experience. So if you want to come and watch stunning theater, visit the Sarofim Hall at The Hobby Center in Houston for one of their upcoming shows!
