Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
We were as blown away by the scenery as we were at the performance itself. It moved to accommodate different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all truly magical. And for good reason. We were told that the production flew in just under 80 tonnes worth of scenery. Even more astounding, that it takes over 8 km of cable to automate it, not that we could spot any! Have we gotten your attention? Come and see this iconic show now at the Gershwin Theatre in New York.
What does it take to be branded as wicked forever? Categorically, there's a story behind it. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's nemesis; but way before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A typical teen witch who formed an unusual bond of friendship with the blond girl 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 enchanting spell on critics and audiences alike. Collecting ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway show productionmanaged 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, New York on Tuesday 28th March 2023. Reserve your tickets now!
