So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.
Having just celebrated its 15th Anniversary on Broadway, Wicked has been seen by nearly 50 million people worldwide.
Broadway’s #1 show for an unprecedented 14 consecutive years, Wicked has been declared “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety and “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly.
Winner of over 50 major awards including the Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is the untold story of the witches of Oz.
Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
With a thrilling score written by Grammy, Tony and Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Schwartz, this family-friendly musical is the definition of ‘Broadway Spectacular’ featuring hit songs The Wizard and I, Popular, For Good, Dancing Through Life and Defying Gravity.
From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment Wicked will transfix you and send your spirits soaring to heights you will never forget.
Don’t miss this show by the award-winning director and choreographer that bought us Mamma Mia, Grease: The Arena Spectacular, Mary Poppins and this year’s sell out hit – Priscilla, Queen of the Desert – The Musical.
