Gershwin Theatre | New York, New York
The story revolves around the unlikely friendship between two sorcery students, green-skinned misfit Elphaba and little-miss-popular Glinda. The two, of course, go on to fulfil their destinies as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda The Good. The struggles of Elphaba are perfectly conveyed by Jacqueline Hughes, who starred in the UK and Ireland tour to fantastic acclaim. (In some shows, the role may be played by Jodie Steele, fresh off her run in War of the Worlds in the West End.) The role of blonde bimbo Glinda is played to perfection by Carly Anderson, who recently performed in Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum. So come see these outstanding actors at the Gershwin Theatre in New York!
We all know happy-ever-after stories of Princes and Princesses, of Heroes and Heroines. But have you ever heard the tale of the wicked witch? From the land of Oz, explore a parallel universe to learn the witches' story. Wicked is a Broadway performance with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked began its life on stage in 2003 and has since merited high praises. The original Broadway production bagged three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, and a Grammy Award for the original cast recording, which spawned the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. This second to none Wicked performance is a magnificent masterpiece with an timeless and widespread appeal. Wicked is headed to this neck of the woods, so buy your tickets as it runs on Sunday 28th January 2024 at the Gershwin Theatre, New York, New York.
