    Wonderful news at so many levels.

    When I was in my first years as a Pagan I was moved and more than moved when I read Marion Zimmer Bradley’s The Mists of Avalon, which was another role reversal, where the Arthurian story was told from Morgan LeFay’s perspective.

    Stories like Wicked and Mists of Avalon may be playing a crucial role in reforming and healing very deeply rooted cultural attitudes that are impervious to rational criticism but vulnerable to a reframing by a better story.

    Carrie dealt with the problem better, with a much more satisfying ending.

      I’m not sure I found the ending satisfying – Both Carrie and the Wicked Witch of the West die, after all.

      I must confess I feel sorry for L. Frank Baum. I can’t but wonder how he would feel about the reworking of his story.

    Great story; saw Wicked when it was at the Kennedy Center here in DC and loved it. The anti-bullying program sounds wonderful.
