Wicked remains one of Broadway’s most popular musicals, and features some of the most creative storytelling on Broadway. Taking its cue from the novel by Gregory Maguire, the Broadway musical re-invents the familiar world of Oz (as in Dorothy and The Wizard). Wicked is really the story about the relationship between two young women who will grow up to become Glinda The Good Witch, called Galinda Upland, and the Wicked Witch of The West, known in the musical as Elphaba. While this is a clever premise in itself, the musical goes a step further by not only entertaining, but also getting the audience to reconsider long-held beliefs about these two mythic figures. Young or old, we all know where the story of where these witches will end up, and that makes this musical all the more rewarding for showing us how it might have begun. What makes Wicked such a tremendous Broadway success is that it is a genuinely engaging story, exceptionally entertaining for adults as well as children. In addition to this, Wicked is actually thought-provoking, in the best way possible.

With award-winning costumes by Susan Hilferty, and scenic design by Eugene Lee, the show successfully re-introduces us in a fresh way to once-familiar characters, and a fictional world that most audiences have an association with today. The unique story of Wicked and its fresh perspective is echoed in the music and lyrics of Stephen Schwartz , which ring out with imagination and a pop-sensibility. As a Broadway musical, Wicked offers a tremendous assortment of interesting characters, creative and imaginative ideas, captivating visual effects, and uniquely dramatic moments. It isn’t easy being green, just ask Elphaba, and Wicked actually succeeds in getting us to care about these characters in an entirely different way. To say that Wicked is Broadway magic is absolutely cliche, but that word “magic” is also absolutely appropriate given this Broadway musical’s ability to tell a story that truly touches the heart, dazzles the eye, delights the ear, and stirs the mind. Magic, yes indeed. Though it may not be for the very young, for those 8 and above.or 108 and below, the show is perfect Broadway magic that you will not forget.
