Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
The production recommends it for children aged seven and up, although children younger than that will still enjoy it. Do note, however, that there are bits that can get a bit dark and scary − and loud − so prepare the younger ones ahead of time. They will also like it more if they are already familiar with the storyline, so it may be a good idea for them to watch (or a good excuse to re-watch) the classic movie before attending for WICKED the musical. Stay-at-home mum Alicia Tan, 38, says, “The last time it was here, my kids both loved it. They were five and nine then. The older one is insisting we go watch it again this time round!”.

Theatre models for us a kind of public discourse that lies at the heart of normal life, and builds our skills for listening to different sides of a conversation or argument, and sympathizing with the struggles of our fellow human beings, whatever their views may be. When we watch a play, we learn what happens when conflicts don't get resolved, and what happens when they do. We develop our faculty for imagining the outcomes of different choices we might make in our personal lives and our political lives. It's not surprising that, in repressive societies, theatre has often been aligned with the movement toward openness and freedom. All of these things are a part of the most amazing show in all of 2020, the phenomenal Wicked, which will be live on stage at the world famous Gershwin Theatre!
