Get Ready for a Visit to Oz

If you haven’t read the book Wicked, this might be a good time to do it. After the success of the Broadway musical by the same name, ABC is developing a mini-series of the story of the Wicked Witch of the West, as told in the book by Gregory McGuire. The eight-hour mini-series is being produced by Salma Hayek.

Interestingly, there’s also a feature film under production that’s based on the Broadway musical and a comedy series is under development for ABC starring Idina Menzel who won a Tony award for her role as Elphaba.

It seems that we’ll all be able to enjoy Oz and the Wicked Witch in several formats. I just hope it doesn’t get overexpeosed and lose its luster.
