Back by “Popular” demand. Variety calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and when it first played Des Moines, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times).

Nearly 100 people worked for 13 trucks full of stage equipment for the musical Wicked. It’s the untold story of the witches of Oz. It took about 30 hours to set up the stage for the Des Moines production. The set includes about 175-thousand pounds of scenery which uses about five miles of cable to automate it.
“It’s one of the closest replicas to a Broadway show that there is,” says stage manager David O’Brien. “The producers and the creative staff really maintain the show to a point where we’re really seeing a Broadway quality show.”
