As a unique twist into the original tale of The Wizard of Oz, Wicked provided us a perspective unlike any other. Elphaba is seen as an ugly and terrible person, but maybe she’s just misunderstood. The Broadway show completely eliminates Dorothy out of the story. Yes, Elphaba is green with magical powers, but she’s also a nerd and is shy about meeting people. She presents new realities for misfits in society for girls of all ages.
