Broadway-San Diego is bringing back Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, “Wicked.” Wicked coming to San Diego Civic Theatre on Wednesday June 20, 2012 and will perform through Sunday July 15, 2012.

Wicked is the untold story of the Witches of Oz. This story of the Wicked Witch of the West (well before Dorothy showed up in the Land of Oz) is clever and wickedly entertaining.

Broadway Sacramento presents the national touring production of the hit Broadway musical Wicked from May 23 to June 17, 2012. Kim Carter (a Lincoln resident) reviewd Wicked and Praised the musical as an Inspiring Musical.

Read the review below:

I’ve wanted to see “Wicked” for years, but every time I’ve been in New York, it has been completely sold out. So I was thrilled to find out that Wicked’s national tour was stopping in Sacramento this summer, which meant I could finally see the show everyone has been raving about and that Variety declared “a cultural phenomenon.”

Lottery tickets: A lottery for $25 orchestra seats will be held before every performance. To enter, visit the Community Center Box Office 2 1/2 hours before the performance. Available only in-person, limit of two tickets per winner. If chosen, winners must pay cash for the tickets and show a valid photo ID.

“Wicked” is a musical told from the perspective of the Witches of Oz, a sort of prequel to “The Wizard of Oz.”

But it’s so much more than just that. It’s a heart-felt and clever experience with something for everyone.

The show has perhaps the grandest costumes and set you’ll ever see but it also has quite a bit of depth as it tackles issues of contemporary relevance, ranging from diversity to political corruption to animal rights.

“Wicked” is as enjoyable as it is inspiring and I highly recommend it (for all ages). “Wicked” has won 35 major awards (including a Grammy and three Tony awards) and I am surprised it hasn’t won even more.

More than 60 people lined up near the building’s front door shortly before 7 a.m., each anxiously awaiting the chance to buy tickets for the smash-hit Broadway musical “Wicked,” which begins its six-week tour at the Smith Center on August 29 and continue through October 07, 2012

“When I heard it was coming to town, I knew I had to see it,” said Las Vegas resident Katherine Muniz, who was first in line Saturday morning. “I heard it was going to sell out, so I figured I’d get here at 4 a.m. just in case.” Muniz said she planned to buy a ticket for herself and one for her mother as a birthday gift. “I’m super excited. I’m glad that there’s more culture coming into town and more things for locals to do,” she said.

Wicked’s arrival is a major moment for the nascent Smith Center, which opened in March, said president Myron Martin, who was busy snapping pictures Saturday morning while wearing a “Wicked”-inspired green tie.

Because of the show’s popularity, tickets are expected to sell out and the Smith Center decided to hold an on-site sale Saturday morning for die-hard fans before releasing the remaining tickets for sale online at 10 a.m.

After purchasing her ticket and seeing the inside of the Smith Center for the first time, Sandy Mullally said she can’t wait for “Wicked” to arrive later this year. “It’s past time we’ve had something like this,” she said.

The greatest musical Wicked is currently playing on 2nd National tour in Durham, North Carolina. Check out the interview by Adesewa Faletibelow {Via Urban Life & Style LLC} with Catherine Charlebois who plays the character Nessarose.

Adesewa Faleti: Tell me about your character Nessarose?

Catherine Charlebois: Nessarose is Elphaba’s younger sister who has been in a wheelchair all her life. She begins the show on her first day of school at Shiz University, hoping to start a new and exciting time in her life, not in the shadow of her sister.

Adesewa Faleti: How long have you been with show?

Catherine Charlebois: I have been with Wicked for two years in April.

Adesewa Faleti: What was the audition process like for this show?

Catherine Charlebois: I began with Wicked as a Universal Swing-my audition consisted of me singing a few songs of my own first, followed by a few pieces of songs from Wicked. After making it through that round, I danced some choreography from the show as well. I eventually added a Nessarose understudy to the tracks that I covered, and to become Nessarose every night, I had to perform a scene and a song from the show for some of our creative team.

Adesewa Faleti: How do you prepare for your role each night?

Catherine Charlebois: As performers, we have to do a lot to keep our bodies and voices healthy and strong to do eight shows a week. Specifically for Nessarose, I have to get my body and voice warmed up and take a few minutes to think about the journey she has to take in the show every night.

Adesewa Faleti: Why do you feel that Wicked is such a loved show?

Catherine Charlebois: I feel that the story is so universal to everyone. The music and the visuals of the show are beautiful, but everyone-male, female, older and younger-can connect to the story and the relationships that develop between the characters.

Adesewa Faleti: What is it like behind the scenes and in between acts?

Catherine Charlebois: It depends on the day! There is almost always excitement and sometimes nerves if someone new is going into the show or doing a new track, but there is always unbelievable support and teamwork between the whole cast and crew.

Adesewa Faleti: Doing the show almost daily, how do you make your performance fresh every night?

Catherine Charlebois: I really just focus on the story that we are trying to tell. I try to keep myself open and see what the other actors are doing on stage with me and react to that.

Adesewa Faleti: What are some of the comments and feedback that you get about the show?

Catherine Charlebois: Everyone loves it! Everyone seems to leave finding a character that they really relate to and follow their story, and I think that is totally unique to our show.

Adesewa Faleti: What show the audience take with them when the play is over?

Catherine Charlebois: Never judge a book by its cover.

Adesewa Faleti: What do you enjoy most about being involved with this show?

Catherine Charlebois: That every day I get to go to work and play with an unbelievably fun and supportive group of people. We tell a story that really moves people and entertains them too!

Adesewa Faleti: Thank you!

Wicked play will be in Durham NC until May 27, 2012 at Durham Performing Arts Center. Get $10 OFF on Wicked Durham Performing Arts Center Ticket Orders of $350 or more by using code #SpringSavings at Checkout.
