Wicked Broadway musical coming to Salt Lake City for the second time. Wicked will be performing at Capitol Theatre – UT from July 18 to August 26, 2012.

“There’s something unique about Salt Lake that we haven’t yet understood,” said Broadway producer David Stone. “Cast album sales in Salt Lake, from almost the beginning, are always sixth or seventh in the number of copies sold,” he said. “It’s only behind cities like New York or Chicago and L.A. where the show ran for years.

“But Salt Lake is much further ahead of Houston, Boston and other cities that are much larger. It’s the second time ‘Wicked’ has been to Salt Lake, and it sells out instantly. ”

The New York Times called “Wicked” “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” and “the defining musical of the decade.”

Wicked Capitol Theatre Performance Schedule:
Tuesday to Thursday – 7:30 PM
Fridays – 8:00 PM
Saturdays – 2:00 PM and 6:30 PM
Sundays – 1:00 PM and 6:30 PM

The Broadway production of “Wicked” has broken the house record at the Gershwin Theatre 20 times during the course of its run – regularly grossing in excess of $1.7 million each week. “Wicked” has grossed a combined total of $1.8 billion for its North American companies. Over nine years, the musical has grossed an estimated $2.5 billion from its cumulative productions, breaking national and international box-office records. Since it began in March 2005, the national tour of “Wicked” has broken the house record in every city in which it has played.

“At its most basic, ‘Wicked’ is just really great storytelling,” said Nicole Parker, who plays Elphaba, the Wicked Witch, in the national tour. “I think that’s when something can last for a long time if it tells a great story about characters you care about. It just gets into people’s hearts.” Parker, who first played the green witch on Broadway, often receives letters from fans who really connected with the show or the character — a well-intentioned young lady who doesn’t quite fit in and is judged because she looks different. “Until the end of time, people will identify with both of these girls,” Parker said.

“I remember seeing a news story on the first time ‘Wicked’ played in Salt Lake City with a line around the door, and I thought, ‘That would be a fun city to do this show,'” she said.

Almost three years later, Parker will get her chance. “I’m already starting to train running on stairs so I can belt those notes at your high elevations.

With 35 major awards to its credit, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, “Wicked” seems to be running a marathon of its own.

Lottery: To enter a nightly drawing for a pair of $25 orchestra-seat tickets, present yourself in person at the theater box office (Capitol Theatre, 50 W. 200 South, Salt Lake City) 2 1/2 hours before the show. Winners should be prepared to pay cash.

Desi Oakley Debuts on Wicked Broadway for the “universal swing” role in the Broadway production of Wicked.

Desi Oakley, who grew up and attended school in Wichita, Kansas, started appearing on stage at age 8 with the Music Theatre of Wichita. Following high school, Oakley studied theater at the University of Michigan. According to Annie Thomson (Oakley’s mother), the school receives more than 5,000 applications annually. Only 20 students are accepted each year, 10 boys and 10 girls. The program is elite and regarded as one of the best musical theater schools in the nation.

“It’s really neat, a great accomplishment,” Annie Thomson said. “I know I just sound like a proud mom, but it’s a great thing for her. I wouldn’t be surprised if she keeps going for bigger and better things.”

During her career, Oakley has played the lead roles in Evita and The The Little Mermaid. After graduating from Michigan last year, she headed straight for the big show, Wicked Musical.

She was soon picked up by a casting agent, which led to her “universal swing” role in the Broadway production of Wicked. “My Broadway debut was the best night of my life,” Oakley said. “I had so much energy and adrenaline, I felt like I got shot out of a cannon.”

Being a “universal swing” means Oakley fills in for other actors both on the national tour and in New York. She has learned 16 different parts in the play — the roles of every female character in the cast. Currently in Jacksonville, Florida, on tour, Oakley says she could never see herself doing anything else.

“I’ve though a lot about it,” she said. “I can’t think of anything I would rather do. I love being confident in who I am. If you have the passion, nothing can stop you. And I personally feel like I have a duty to share the gifts I was given.”

Wicked is one of the most successful Broadway musicals of all time. Wicked musical has grossed nearly $2.5 billion and has been seen by 30 million people worldwide. Wicked is currently playing on tour in Los Angeles, CA and Jacksonville, FL. Buy Wicked Tour 2012 Tickets, Use Code AFF$10 to Get $10 OFF on Orders over $350!

Wicked is currently performing at Times Union Ctr Perf Arts Moran Theater and continue through Sunday, January 22, 2012. Wicked, the latest offering from the Artist Series in Jacksonville, is a technically lavish, expertly performed production of the immensely entertaining and hugely popular show that has been running on Broadway since 2003.

It provides a clever backstory to Elphaba, the mean and green Wicked Witch of the West played by Margaret Hamilton in the iconic 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz” but has never been a critical darling. But the characters are fascinating and the plot dovetails satisfyingly with the familiar story we know from the movie. Dorothy’s trip to Oz coincides with the last half of the second act and while she is never seen on stage, she is referenced in several scenes.

The story centers on Elphaba, a young woman born with green skin and mysterious powers, a permanent outsider who strikes unlikely alliances at school with the dazzlingly popular Glinda (soon to be the good witch) and the dashingly irresponsible Fiyero. When she learns that the animals of Oz, once treated as equals to humans, are being oppressed, Elphaba becomes an unlikely animal-rights advocate and a social outcast.

The touring version now at the Moran Theater in The Times-Union Center for the Performing Arts works wonderfully well. Anne Brummel makes a fierce Elphaba and Tiffany Haas a bubbly, self-absorbed Glinda. Don Amendolia is expert as the humbug Wizard and Timothy Britten Parker makes a terrific goatman as Dr. Dillamond.

The sets, costumes and special effects are dazzling as Glinda flies around in her bubble and Elphaba on her broom, while the Wizard’s mechanical head roars and belches smoke.
