Bee reviewer Donald Munro says the touring production of "Wicked" at Fresno's Saroyan Theatre cast the same powerful spell it did when the show came to town in 2011.
"When the national tour of “Wicked” first played in Fresno ... I noted how it simply upped the ante for all other touring shows that come through the Saroyan," Munro writes. "It’s Broadway quality. (With near New York prices to match, of course.) The second visit of the tour, which opened Wednesday, has maintained that high standard in every regard. 'Wicked' is still wicked good."
