"IF EVERY MUSICAL HAD THE BRAIN, THE HEART, AND THE COURAGE OF WICKED, BROADWAY WOULD REALLY BE A MAGICAL PLACE."

--Time Magazine
 
So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz… but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin--smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships… until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked."
 
From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked--the untold true story of the Witches of Oz--transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is "a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think." It will send your spirits soaring to heights you'll never forget. 

Recommended for age 8 and up.

Performance Timing: 2 hours and 45 minutes, including one 15-minute intermission.
