Gershwin Theatre | New York, New York
We were as spellbound by the scenery as we were at the show itself. It moved to host different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all quite magical. And for good reason. We were told that the production flew in just under 80 tonnes worth of scenery. Even more astounding, that it takes over 8 km of cable to automate it, not that we could spot any! Have we gotten your attention? Come and watch this iconic musical now at the Gershwin Theatre in New York.
What does it take to be called wicked for all time? Unquestionably, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's nemesis; but lets go back before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A typical young witch who established an unusual bond of friendship with the blond teenager Galinda -- a friendship that reached a crossroad that took a turn on their lives and destinies. That's "Wicked"! Indeed, this is a spin-off from “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked is a Broadway musical production, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft and wizardry, but Wicked has cast a magical spell on critics and audiences alike. Racking up ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway musical productionmanaged to win three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, along with Grammy Award for the original cast album, to boot. Music, magic, marvelousness all rolled into one. Don't miss Wicked as it hits the stage of the Gershwin Theatre in New York, New York on Sunday 7th January 2024. Grab your tickets now!
