It has been declared, “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly, has won 35 major awards (including a Grammy and three Tonys) and has broken box office records around the world. The musical, which opened on Broadway in 2003 and immediately began playing to sold-out houses, spawned numerous national tours and instigated a major uptick in green makeup sales, is back in town.
Wicked, via songs such as, “Popular” and “What is this Feeling?” tells the tale of green-skinned Elphaba and her unlikely friend Glinda as they grow to become known as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch, the well-known characters from The Wizard of Oz. So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Variety calls WICKED “a cultural phenomenon,” and it has broken box office records and sold out every time it has played Dallas. Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster,” according to The New York Times. Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz.
