The epic battle of good vs. evil has played out in a number of places and ways. The musical Wicked tells the unexpected backstory of Elphaba, the “Wicked Witch of the West.” We may know her better as the cackling, green faced woman who is allergic to water in The Wizard of Oz. In Wicked, Elphaba becomes roommates with Glinda, the “Good Witch”, at school. As we get to know both of these women, the lines between good and evil get blurry. Elphaba is supposed to be bad, yet she is heroic and kind. Glinda is supposed to be “good,” yet she is shallow, selfish, and a bully.
