So much happened before Dorothy dropped into Oz. Wicked uncovers that story.
Based on the popular 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, this beloved American musical delves into the backstory of two witches, Glinda the Good Witch and the Wicked Witch of the West. The musical begs the question: How did these two transform from squabbling schoolgirls of Oz into the fiercest witches in the land?
Over the course of the show, Elphaba and Glinda evolve from foes to friends. Follow as these mystical women engage in lively verbal squabbles and "political innuendo and outuendo," battle over the dashing prince Fiyero, and fly off to the Emerald City to see the Wonderful Wizard of Oz – who, mysteriously, may not be as wonderful a wizard as once thought.
Featuring a score by Stephen Schwartz (Pippin, Godspell), with beloved songs like "Defying Gravity" and "Popular," and direction by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Assassins, Glengarry Glen Ross), Wicked is a mega-hit that has audiences returning again and again.
