Wicked, Just Wicked

Theatre: I have real qualms about going to see the musical Wicked, which tells the story of the witches of Oz. On one hand, I'd love to see it. On the other, one of the songs makes me cringe:

In all of Oz,
No wizard that there is or was
Is ever gonna bring me down...

Gonna? Gonna?! Since when does the Wicked Witch of the West use the word 'gonna?'

They've traded her speech pattern for Broadway lyrical meter, and it so doesn't work. The other song snippets which I've heard over the radio don't sound much better. :(

I'm not happy about this at all.
