wizard of oz
After a tornado transports Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) and her little dog, Toto, to the Land of Oz, she’s off to see the Wizard, the wonderful Wizard of Oz. He agrees to help her get back home but only after she destroys the Wicked Witch of the West. She’s joined by the Cowardly Lion, the Tinman and the Scarecrow as she travels the yellow brick road. And don’t forget those amazing ruby red slippers, which the Wicked Witch of the West also wants to get her hands on, my pretty.
Who doesn’t love Glinda? Well, everyone except for those wicked witches, who have framed her for the murder of the King of Oz. With a little help from Oz and his visual trickery, she eventually wins back her kingdom. Glinda also knows how to make an entrance and opts to travel by bubble.
Wicked gives the backstory of Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West in The Wizard of Oz. Born with green skin, she’s is neglected in favor of her beautiful sister Nessarose. When Elphaba starts college, she’s ignored in favor of her popular roommate Galinda. When they’re ready to fly, Galinda gets a bubble while Elphaba gets a dirty broomstick. How’s that fair?
