We were surprised and disappointed to read Larry Laneers review Which witch? (Life, Performing Arts, Sept. 11, Oklahoma Gazette), in which he described this performance as a dud, the score as largely forgettable and the ending as satisfying as watered-down cream of celery soup.
Surely he is aware Wicked has won 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards. It was evident to us that every actor was fully engaged in giving his or her best performance to Oklahoma City. It is a shame to think of those who may have missed this Broadway performance because of the unkind and, I believe, inaccurate review by Laneer.
