Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
When Dorothy and her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, famously triumphed over the Wicked Witch in the classic tale and 1939 film starring Judy Garland, we only got to watch one side of the story. And all kids should learn that they shouldn’t jump to conclusions until they’ve heard both sides to any story. This will open young eyes (and older ones too!), as bits of the well-loved story are turned on their heads. We know our eyes widened when it dawned on me how the Tin Man came to lose his heart! This emotional story needs to be seen, and now you can at the Gershwin Theatre in New York!
Wicked! Is a story of friendship and treachery, alliance and enmity, a story of how things could have been so, so different. Before the famous Dorothy lands anywhere near the land of Oz, before there even was a Tin-man, a scaredy-cat Lion or a Scarecrow. Wicked brings you the spectacle, the deception, the mix-ups and the masterful story of friendship and identity, discover more about all the iconic characters from the Land of Oz! Tickets are available now for Wicked! Only at the stunning Gershwin Theatre in the city of New York on the Friday 19th May 2023.
