If you think you know the Wicked Witch of the West, think again...
Wicked has now established itself as one of the most successful breakthrough musicals in recent history. Even in its tenth year the spell-binding musical just keeps getting bigger, becoming so popular it is now one of the Broadway's biggest attractions.
When Dorothy famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch, we only ever heard one side of the story. Gregory Maguire's acclaimed 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, re-imagined the Land of Oz, creating a parallel universe to the familiar story written by L. Frank Baum and first published as The Wonderful Wizard of Oz in 1900.
Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl, Elphaba.
The spectacular, multi award-winning stage musical, with music & lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman features incredible songs, mesmerising visuals, and a twist on classic story. Wicked is a must for all theatre-lovers, featuring the songs Defying Gravity, Popular, Wicked is with good reason universally loved.
Richard Zoglin of Time Magazine says, ""If every musical had a brain, a heart and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.""
