After hearing Wicked mentioned in an uncountable number of films and TV shows over the last few years I thought it was about time that I got in the loop and was really surprised to find that it was actually pretty good. Not only was the story really clever in incorporating the original (I will never be able to watch the wizard of Oz again without shouting "that's not how it happened!" at the screen) but the costumes were stunning. Not surprising considering each cast member changes, on average, into eight completely new outfits through the course of the show and that the show's costume designer, Susan Hilferty, won a 2004 Tony Award for her work on the original Broadway show.
It seems the Emerald City is a milliners Mecca which is Wicked as I love green (no pun intended).
