In its return engagement to Minneapolis, “Wicked” is still richly entertaining. The themes and puns in Stephen Schwartz’s blockbuster musical, which Winnie Holzman elegantly adapted from Gregory Maguire’s novel, light up contemporary issues like fairy dust. Despite some opening-night inconsistencies, the show is a juggernaut of story, music and design.
