Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
We were as blown away at the scenery as we were at the performance itself. It moved to host different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all completely magical. And for good reason. We were told that the production flew in just under 80 tonnes worth of scenery. Even more mind blowing, that it takes over 8 km of cable to automate it, not that we could spot any! Have we gotten your attention? Come and experience this illustrious show now at the Gershwin Theatre in New York.
What does it take to be renowned as wicked for all time? Unquestionably, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's nemesis; but before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A typical young witch who developed an unusual bond of friendship with the blond teen 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 or 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 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, marvelousness all rolled into one. Don't miss Wicked as it hits the stage of the Gershwin Theatre in New York, New York on Saturday 23rd September 2023. Buy your tickets now!
