Chief among the show's triumphs – besides Winnie Holzman's remarkably deft book, Eugene Lee's jaw-dropping set of gears and vines, and the eclectic costuming by Susan Hilferty – are the female leads. Casting, they say, is 80 percent of a director's work

The most complete, and completely satisfying, new musical I've come across in a long time... juggles winning irreverence with thoughtfulness and heart.

In retrospect, “Wicked” seems an early sign of the cultural clout — which is to say buying power — of a generation of girls (and now women) whose desire to see, and read, and sing along with stories about female empowerment has become a snowballing trend. “The Hunger Games” came along in 2008, and became one of the biggest media phenomena of the past decade. And, of course, “Frozen,” Disney’s animated blockbuster movie about two royal sisters with a complicated relationship, surely owes a significant debt to “Wicked,” and not just because Ms. Menzel gave voice to the heroine Elsa, with her snow-blowing superpowers and her megahit “Let It Go.”
