Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
A rollercoaster ride of emotions from isolation and fear, to optimism, acceptance and everything in between, the Musical’s new perspective on the life of the Wicked Witch of the West – aka Elphaba – is a triumphant celebration of friendship and staying true to your heart. Not only does the immersive story, based on Gregory Maguire’s best-selling novel (itself a reimagination of L Frank Baum’s original book) deliver plenty of laughs, but there’s many lessons to be learned in Glinda and Elphaba’s relationship, too. So come and see this incredible story unfold at the Gershwin Theatre!
You may wonder why theater is such a exceptional form of art that has been around since the dawn of culture and is only growing stronger. Among the many reasons, it’s really unparalled to see a story develop on stage, culminating what took months, if not years, to create, a coordinated effort of many talented professionals coming together naturally; characters, set, costumes, sound and lights, and of course the audience. The element for a coordinated effort is truly unforgettable. It’s thrilling to realize that it was all created for that moment. All the work, rehearsals, mistakes and successes, all the late nights, all this hard work so it can come together for this specific moment, for you. No edits, no second takes. That’s art, and it’s entertaining. And you are only one ticket away from something exceptional: Wicked on Wednesday 21st July 2021.
