Why Watch Wicked
Wicked first opened on October 30th, 2003 and has since then grown into one of the highest-grossing and longest-running shows in Broadway history. Applauded as ‘Broadway’s Biggest Blockbuster’ by The New York Times, Wicked is an extravagant and fantastic musical that takes viewers through a rollercoaster of emotions. A hit with family audiences, the musical is a treat to the senses with stunning visuals and riveting music. The wonderful amalgamation of top-notch acting and theatrical effects creates a magical experience for viewers.
Most of the world knows the story of Dorothy and the Wizard of Oz; but, before that, came the tale of two witches – The Wicked Witch of the West, Elphaba, and The Good Witch of the North, Glinda. In this brilliant theatrical adaptation of the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”, the musical unveils the story of these two unlikely friends.

If every musical had a brain, a heart and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”
