Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
The composer and lyricist responsible for the musical’s songs is multi-Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz. He was also the individual behind the earworms in Disney’s Pocahontas, The Hunchback of Notre Dame and The Prince of Egypt. While the dramatic ‘Defying Gravity’ is the most famous song in WICKED the musical, the song that touched us the most was Elphaba’s emotional rendition of ‘No Good Deed’. It springs from her distress and rage at how her efforts to do the right thing keep being thwarted, a feeling that many children can surely associate with. And once your kids have heard it, Glinda’s cheery ‘Popular’ may well overtake ‘Let It Go’ from Disney’s Frozen as the song of the season. So bring the family and come and see some incredible music at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City.
MAGIC. This may be the number one reason theater-goers will tell anyone as to why they go to the theater. When done well, a stage production can transport the everyone into a different world, and this can create a one-of-a-kind energy that you can actually FEEL, an energy that is created by the bond between the actors and the audience. Those specific moments in that specific place in time will never be repeated exactly because of that bond which is unique every single time, and that experience is undescribeble. It’s magic. And Wicked brings amazing talent, and sensational passion into every performance. Combined with the professional staff of Gershwin Theatre, your Thursday 17th September 2020 will be trully exceptional. Remember, you are one click away from magic.
