Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
Wicked on Broadway tells the story of Elphaba, the hated Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the lovely good witch from The Wizard of Oz. Wicked offers a new and somewhat surprising take on a well-loved tale 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 truly incredible and the message is powerful. It is impossible to experience Wicked on Broadway without becoming emotionally attached to at least one of the characters. So come and see it now at the Gershwin Theatre.
Anyone who wants to see social and political issues being tackled in a understandable way, should watch a musical. Broadway shows take on social and political issues all the time, without being too controversial. The majority of musicals will engage you in the true story, without being too biased or insensitive. And that’s exactly what happens when the Wicked comes to the world famous Gershwin Theatre on Sunday 4th October 2020, why not come along?
