"A bona-fide crowd pleaser!" –The Washington Post Winner of three 2003 Tony Awards(r) Music and Lyrics by Stephen Schwartz Book by Winnie Holzman Directed by Joe Mantello Musical Staging by Wayne Cilento
So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One--born with emerald green skin--is smart, fiery, and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious, and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding musical in years. "An irresistible extravaganza of music, magic, artistry, and enchantment" (The New York Observer), Wicked is the untold story of the witches of Oz.
When it appeared on Broadway in 2003, Wicked worked its magic on critics and audiences alike, winning 15 major awards including a Grammy(r) and three Tony Awards(r). Featuring music and lyrics by Grammy(r) and Academy Award(r) winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin), Wicked is directed by Tony(r) winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out) and is "the most complete--and completely satisfying--new musical in a long time" (USA Today).
