Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
To call the performance a visual feast doesn’t fully encase the sheer excellence of the glorious WICKED spectacle, but it’s good place to start. From the exhilarating, emerald-hued journey into the Wizard’s famous home city – where a glowing green ensemble in magnificent garb are as striking as the formidable machine from which the wizard operates – to Glinda’s sparkling bubble dress and that gravity-defying scene, the show really is a feat of production. The magical effects create an immersive atmosphere that’s as extraordinary for adults as it is children. What more do we need to say? Get your tickets here.
What does it take to be renowned as wicked for all time? Certainly, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's adversary; but before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A typical teen witch who formed an extraordinary bond of friendship with the blond young witch 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 or wizardry, but Wicked has cast a mesmerizing spell on critics and audiences alike. Racking up ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway musical performancemanaged 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 City, New York on Friday 11th March 2022. Reserve your tickets now!
