Its Not Easy Being Green

On the face of it, there is little that Imperial Life In The Emerald City by Rajiv Chandrasekaran and the musical Wicked have in common, except that they both feature a location called the Emerald City. And indeed if you remove the circumstantial fact that I read one and saw the other in the same week you would be correct. Nevertheless this coincidence of circumstance impels me to write a joint review of both with a vague suggestion that this conjunction will shine some sort of unforeseen light upon both works which makes the experience richer.

It almost certainly won’t.
