Rated 5.0

This spectacular spectacle has all the elements of a memorable musical: great storyline taken from a best-selling book, an emotional connection with one of the best-loved movies of all time (The Wizard of Oz), a talented cast, a soaring score (though without particularly memorable songs), colorful costumes, and an amazing set with major movable parts. The two leads—Emma Hunton as Elphaba and Gina Beck as Glinda—are a mischievously funny and eventually heartbreaking pair who play off each other like a classic theater duo. Both have showstopping voices and perfect timing. It's a Broadway road show that doesn't look like a road show. Tu, W, F 8pm; Th, Sa 2pm & 8pm; Su 2pm & 7:30pm. Through 6/15. $25-$198. Broadway Sacramento at the Community Center Theater, 1300 L St.; (916) 557-1999; www.broadwaysacramento.com.
