Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
We were as blown away at the scenery as we were at the show itself. It moved to accommodate different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all extremely 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 watch this illustrious musical now at the Gershwin Theatre in New York.
What does it take to be called wicked forever? Unquestionably, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's foe; but way before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A slightly magical teen who established a curious 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 show production, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft and wizardry, but Wicked has cast a magical spell on critics and audiences alike. Collecting 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, New York on Friday 30th June 2023. Book your tickets now!
