The albums provided answers to mysteries the previous releases created, and the timeliness of the story in today's world were guaranteed to keep people thinking and guessing. Schaffer's ability to convey the central themes and events of the story without always revealing exactly "why" characters' decisions are made and "how" events come to pass will keep fans of the saga coming back as future mediums for the "Something Wicked" storyline are revealed.

I actually liked the last two albums but what I never got is what mystery did the original Something Wicked Trilogy leave to be revealed? The story always seemed pretty straight forward to me and didn't need any elaborating at all. But maybe that was just me. I don't recall other fans wanting to know more about it at all
None of these shows are near me so I won't be seeing any of them. Hopefully they can do a full tour and get somewhere close by. Now, on to the whole "what day of the week it's on" debate I personally don't see the problem. If you have to get off for work odds are you can just ask for it off or switch a shift (if that's possible at your job) with another worker. As for having school the next day, I went to shows during high school and you just have to make the best of it the next day if you're tired. It might suck a little but it won't be that bad. In high school my parents were cool enough to come up with a bullshit excuse to tell the school that morning if they knew I was gonna be late coming in because of a show the previous night
If you're in college and you have an early class the following day you can skip it, it's not like they give a shit if you show up or not anyways. There really are simple solutions here. Don't make the situation more complicated than it really is.
