I was finally watching Wicked for the first time yesterday at the danish Det Ny Teater! My my! It was weird not having the English lyrics, but the danish translations was not that bad... :) The acting was really great, and what I was most impressed about was the scenography/set design and costumes!
I am going to watch it again with my family soon. :) They have to watch it.. ^.^

To return to the scenography and the costumes. The danish theater had got the rights to change a lot of the original designs. They were completely Steam Punk inspired, Victorian but in a modern way. With 60 flat screens placed in on stage, and around which illustrated a lot of different things, and a projection wall with big images that made it possible to create a lot of interesting character to the scenes.
