Back by “popular” demand. Variety calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One – born with emerald green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time” (USA Today).
In his coverage of the national touring production, Peter Marks, of The Washington Post, called WICKED, “a breathtaking success story of a magnitude that North America has not witnessed since the peak years of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA.” Chris Jones, of the Chicago Tribune, has called WICKED “the most popular piece of Chicago theatre in a generation.” In his review of the Los Angeles production, Charles McNulty, of the Los Angeles Times, stated that “WICKED is a phenomenon that keeps growing.” Chad Jones, of the San Francisco Chronicle, called WICKED, “the San Francisco-born musical that has conquered the world.”
