'Wicked' movie will have to wait

If only people would stop buying tickets to see this musical, it might be adapted for film sooner!! (I have to confess that I just bought tickets to see it my 4th time so I'm part of the problem.)

Stephen Schwartz, composer of the Broadway hit mentioned in an interview at Western Michigan University that a movie version of Wicked is in the works but will be released in about 5 years.

Darn. Hoped for it sooner.

  1. My kids, who are huge Wicked fans, have agreed that they don't want a movie version--they think it just won't compare to the thrilling experience of seeing a live production.

    I'm not sure I agree that a movie would flop, but I get their point.

  2. I would love to see a movie version of the musical if only to share with my friends who haven't attended in person but yes, I'm nervous about how successfully they would be able to pull it off.
