Totally worth it. Teal Wicks had a great voice—and though she played the role with much more anger than Shoshana Bean did, losing a lot of the potential humor in the process, she was a joy to watch.

SO WORTH IT.
I saw Shoshana Bean as Elphaba and Jennifer Laura Thompson as Glinda, and both were fantastic.
We’re going to L.A. this month to see it again at the Pantages Theater.
Money-saving hint: if you’re going to see “Wicked” at the Pantages and you have a family member or friend who’s a teacher, that person can get a nice educator’s discount on orchestra seats during midweek performances (Tuesday through Thursday). The offer is limited to 4 tickets. Check out http://wickededucators.com/ (no, I’m not getting paid to recommend this—just thought it was a good deal).
