An intelligent, misunderstood girl with green skin who finds an unexpected
friend in Galinda and falls in love with Fiyero. Her rebellion against the
Wizard, after finding out who he truly is, frames her into the name "The
Wicked Witch Of The West". After feeling hopeless, even after all her good
deeds and intentions, she realizes she will never be able to clear her name and
gives into the name that Oz has created for her.
Beautiful and ambitious, she initially seems vain and superficial, though her
friendship with Elphaba reveals more depth in her character. She later
changes her name from "Galinda" to "Glinda" in honor of Doctor Dillamond's
persistent mispronunciation and to impress Fiyero. Glinda is a social climber
and seizes the opportunity to join the Wizard despite his fraudulence, who
decrees that she be known as "Glinda the Good."
A handsome prince with a "scandalacious" reputation, who is formerly attracted
to Galinda. That quickly diminishes after his choice to have a relationship
with Elphaba. Fiyero is initially shallow and self-absorbed, but his
encounters with Elphaba cause him to re-evaluate his way of thinking.
Elphaba transforms Fiyero into the Scarecrow when Ozian guards take him
away to be beaten after he defends Elphaba. He is saved from a painful
death, but cursed to live forever, unable to feel pain.
The illegitimate dictator of Oz appears fatherly and brands himself a
"sentimental man," but he is secretly the driving force behind the oppression
of Oz's Animals. The Wizard realizes at the end of the story that he is in
fact the father of Elphaba after Glinda presents him with the green elixir
bottle Elphaba always carried around. The Wizard had an affair with
Elphaba's mother while Elphaba's father was away on business
Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz as sorcery
students at Shiz University . One, born with emerald skin, is smart, fiery and
misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.
Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship
reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s
unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s
determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have
unexpected and shocking consequences for her future.
How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and
Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years.
