Wicked - New York

 

Hailed as ""Broadway's biggest blockbuster"" in major reviews, Wicked on Broadway has been one of New York theatreland's most popular shows since it opened in October 2003. This captivating musical tells the incredible story of Glinda the good witch and Elphaba the wicked witch in The Wizard of Oz's and is based on Gregory Maguire's 1995 version of the original 1939 film, The Wizard of Oz. Indeed, there are several references to the original film in today's musical.

Telling the story of two friends, Elphaba and Glinda and their struggles through contrasting personalities, points of view and jealousy over a love-interest, the original cast featured Idina Menzel who played Elphaba, Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda, and Joel Grey in the role of the Wizard. With a $14 million initial investment, this lavish production deals with the thought-provoking themes of beauty, morality and fighting fascism, enthralling audiences from beginning to end.

The list of awards Wicked has won is impressive with three Tony Awards and six Drama Desk Awards. Musically, the show has excelled too, winning a Grammy for 'Best Musical Show Album'. Buying Wicked tickets will open up a world of spectacular sets, costumes, and special effects, which have all helped to earn this musical the accolade of being Broadway's ninth longest-running show.
