What does it take to be renowned as wicked forever? Definitely, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's foe; but before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. A typical young witch who formed an uncommon 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 musical production, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft or wizardry, but Wicked has cast a enchanting spell on critics and audiences alike. Racking up ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway musical productionmanaged 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 City, New York on Wednesday 4th May 2022. Grab your tickets now!
