Premiering on Broadway in 2003, the global phenomenon that is Wicked continues to captivate audiences in over one hundred cities, in thirteen different countries and seven different languages. A magical tale of friendship, love, power and destiny, Wicked questions the supposed dichotomy of good versus evil and explores the premise of perception truly being reality. Based on Gregory Maguire’s 1995 revisionist novel of L. Frank Baum’s original works, Wicked reveals the untold story preceding the iconic Wizard of Oz. We follow the adventures and dilemmas of Elphaba and Glinda as they realise their respective callings as ‘Wicked Witch of the West’ and ‘Glinda the Good’ via their blossoming friendship, dealings with the corrupt power-wielding Wizard of Oz, and the mutual love-interest towards a young prince named Fiyero. A parallel universe opens up before our eyes as the masterful Stephen Schwartz (music and lyrics) and Joe Mantello (director) lead a vastly talented creative team in bringing the enchanted Land of Oz to life in magnificently lavish style, realising a world of fantasy, sorcery and unrivalled beauty.
