Fact of the Day #5

Hey y'all! Check out this neat-o fact-o!
5. In "Wicked" the musical, Elphaba takes a train from Shiz to the Emerald City, but the map of Oz curtain at top of the show depicts no train tracks between the two locations!
Filed under: continuity oopsie.
Aren't you relieved to have learned this life-changing bit of information? Yeah, I thought so.


  1. Continuity oopsie...for some reason, this phrase gives me a severe case of the giggles... I love these little factoids! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow I'm really going to look at that next time I go and see Wicked!

  3. hahaha huh. Strange mistake. But entertaining fact.

  4. It's not just an oopsie in the musical. The map in the book also doesn't have the train tracks from Shiz to the Emerald City. In the Wizard of Oz, it was always the yellow brick road that lead to the Emerald City so there!
