Gershwin Theatre | New York, New York
Wicked on Broadway tells the story of Elphaba, the despised Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the lovely good witch from The Wizard of Oz. Wicked offers a fresh and somewhat surprising take on a well-loved story and is appropriate for all ages. The underlying themes [staying true to oneself, doing what’s right even if it is difficult etc.] are intertwined throughout the story and are more relevant than ever in today’s society. The music is inspirational and the message is powerful. It is impossible to experience Wicked on Broadway without becoming emotionally engaged to at least one of the characters. So come and see it now at the Gershwin Theatre.
The wicked witch of the west troubled Dorothy in the land of Oz. We all know how Dorothy walked away a winner. But has it ever crossed your mind how that witch turned wicked? Wicked! is the other side of the story. A parallel universe, the backstory of how the wicked witch came to be. And Wicked! is a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical theater play production, transformed from page to stage, based on Gregory Maguire’s novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”. This enchanting plot comes to life with an amazing set, a vibrant cast profoundly steeped in acting and stunning musical talent -- rendering memorable song numbers like “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. The Sunday Telegraph hails it as "A brilliant production. Blockbuster entertainment, sophisticated comedy, and thought-provoking drama". Don't miss this runaway hit musical as it makes its way to this side of town. Catch Wicked! on its play date at the Gershwin Theatre in New York, New York on Friday 31st May 2024. Tickets on sale now!
