Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
The composer and lyricist responsible for the musical’s songs is multi-Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz. He was also the individual behind the earworms in Disney’s Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Prince of Egypt. While the dramatic ‘Defying Gravity’ is the most famous song in WICKED the musical, the song that touched us the most was Elphaba’s emotional rendition of ‘No Good Deed’. It springs from her distress and rage at how her attempts to do the right thing keep being thwarted, a feeling that many children can surely associate with. And once your kids have heard it, Glinda’s cheery ‘Popular’ may well overtake ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s Frozen as the song of the season. So bring the family and come and see some incredible music at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City.
Theatre reminds us that we are not alone! Not only are we sharing an experience with the incredible artists who are on stage, we are sharing the experience with fellow audience members in attendance. Movies and television are fun, but by no means are they similar. They don’t have the same intimacy or sense of participation that theater-goers adore! Sharing an experience with live actors and live audience members is not only valuable, it’s necessary for human connection. By following a story directly on stage, and seeing the story unfold with real-life expressions, you get a truly enriching experience. And when shows are delivered with the excellence Gershwin Theatre offers, you’re sure to be blown away. So why not come down and see one of their breathtaking upcoming shows, such as Wicked on Friday 23rd October 2020.
