The Wicked musical is one of the most exciting shows in the history of musicals and was the most successful Broadway show of 2004. Based on a novel by Gregory Maguire, the musical tells the back story of the Land of Oz, focusing on two very recognisable figures - Galinda, the good witch, and Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West. Cote takes fans and newfound friends backstage, providing photos of the vivid characters and set. More than a tie-in, it's a companion, a behind-the-scenes special and a celebration of the hottest show in town.… (mere)

My video review/flip-through: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KRPRH8DxMVE

This book is gorgeous!!!!

~~~~~~

I absolutely loved this. There was a lot of insight into all the effort that went into making this play. It is beautifully designed and gorgeous to look at. The colour scheme was great and I found myself forgetting time just staring at the large pictures and maps and reading every little detail. So much effort when into making this amazing and it shows.

There were so many people interviewed on different topics and they all flowed so well into each other that it wasn't jarring. I really appreciated that they'd interviewed the author of [b:Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West|37442|Wicked The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West (The Wicked Years, #1)|Gregory Maguire|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1437733293l/37442._SY75_.jpg|1479280] as it was nice to see what he liked/didn't like and how he dealt with it and also to hear that he gave them his blessing to mess around with the original story a bit. My favourite part were the interviews with the different actors who have brought the characters to life. Even though they were short, it was neat to see what they took/didn't take form those who came before them and how they tried to develop the characters they were playing while still staying true to the original. It was so cool.

I should also mention that there is a lot of text. I was happily surprised to find that I spent a lot more time reading this than I had first anticipated. I also liked the little interactive sections like learning to do Elphaba's dance or taking a character personality quiz. I was not expecting that and it was a good surprise.

I do wish that when they showed copied of notes they had not clustered them on top of each other as I did try to read them and it was quite annoying that the bottom corners were cut off. Also, I would have liked it if instead of just saying that the script changed in a certain way, they provided examples. While it still gave a great insight into how they developed the play from the book and the author of the original book even gave his two cents, I would have liked to have had a better idea what the original drafts might have looked like or the lyrics to songs that later got replaced.

Other than that, I don't have any complaints about this. I love it. It is certainly something that I will treasure for a very long time.

I highly recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the musical. ( )

A thorough and intricate companion piece to the hit Broadway musical, 'Wicked the Grimmerie' goes behind the scenes in making the musical, includes portions of the script and sheet music, beautiful photographs of the various productions, and fascinating trivia for the die-hard 'Wicked' fan. An excellent coffee table book!

Wicked: The Grimmerie offers a behind-the-scenes story of the Broadway musical from Gregory Maguire's 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, to the adoration the play eventually garnered from fans. The Grimmerie explores casting choices, the difficulties in translating the characters' backstories to the stage and the challenges in creating the ideal songs to express this, the writers' struggles with how faithful they needed to be to the novel while still telling a good story, the creation of sets, costumes, make-up, and lighting, and more. The book also helps to set the musical within the context of other adaptations of Baum's novels, explaining what elements from the books made it in to the play. Fans of Oz, Maguire's novels, or the musical will delight in this behind-the-scenes book. ( )

Absolutely love this book, I recieved it as a birthday present (along with tickets to see the show the next day!) and it was so amazing to see how they put together the show. I loved the fact that you get a little of the script in the grimmerie, and I also love the profile pages. If you're a fan of Wicked and haven't yet brought this book I stongly suggest you do, you will not be dissapointed ( )
