Wicked the Musical is running in Victoria near my flat. I worry about the modern tendency to convince people that children's stories are a legitimate way for adults to spend their time; Harry Potter is for kids and an adult reading it needs to kill their inner child. As such, the idea of this musical frustrated me a little. A friend tells me it is good but I've been skeptical of such claims since people told me Shrek was fun for all ages.
However, I didn't think about the wonderful consequence of a musical set in the Wizard of Oz 'universe'... flying monkeys!
