Gershwin Theatre | New York, New York
When Dorothy and her friends, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man and the Cowardly Lion, iconically triumphed over the Wicked Witch in the original story and 1939 film starring Judy Garland, we only got to experience one side of the tale. And all kids should learn that they shouldn’t jump to conclusions until they’ve heard all 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!
The wicked witch of the west tormented Dorothy in the land of Oz. We all know how Dorothy won that fight. But have you ever wondered how that witch turned wicked? Wicked! is the origin of that story. A parallel universe, the backstory of how the wicked witch came to be. And Wicked! is a Tony Award-winning Broadway musical production, transformed from page to stage, based on Gregory Maguire’s novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”. This magical plot comes to life with an increadable set, an exciting cast intensely steeped in acting and excellent musical talent -- rendering memorable song numbers like “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. The Sunday Telegraph hails it as "A brilliant production. Blockbuster entertainment, sophisticated comedy, and thought-provoking drama".
