Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
The production recommends it for children aged seven and up, although children younger than that will still love it. Do note, however, that there are bits that can get a bit dark and scary − and loud − so prepare the younger ones ahead of time. They will also like it more if they are already familiar with the storyline, so it may be a good idea for them to watch (or a good excuse to re-watch) the classic movie before attending for WICKED the musical. Stay-at-home mum Alicia Tan, 38, says, “The last time it was here, my kids both loved it. They were five and nine then. The older one is insisting we go watch it again this time round!”.

What does it take to be renowned as wicked forever? Definitely, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's adversary; but way before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. An ordinary teen witch who formed an uncommon bond of friendship with the blond teenager 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 performance, 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, magnificence all rolled into one. Don't miss Wicked as it hits the stage of the Gershwin Theatre in New York City, New York on Sunday 8th May 2022. Book your tickets now!
