Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
Not fully part of the sets on stage, but rather perched above it from beginning to finish, is a dragon! Its wingspan is said to be as wide as that of a Cessna 172 Skyhawk, the aircraft that set the still-standing world record for flight endurance in 1958. Look out when it – the dragon, not the plane – comes to life! See all of this live at the iconic Gershwin Theatre in New York City!
What does it take to be called wicked for all time? Categorically, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's adversary; but lets go back before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. An everyday girl who formed an unusual bond of friendship with the blond teen 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 theater play, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft or wizardry, but Wicked has cast a enchanting spell on critics and audiences alike. Collecting ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway stage musicalmanaged 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 Wednesday 29th June 2022. Buy your tickets now!
