Broadway's Most Popular Show Wicked Is Still Defying Gravity

For several years now Wicked is playing to mostly sell-out audiences 8 times a week. I have personally seen Wicked 3 times with different lead actors in the cast and each performance was brilliant. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Wicked simply has all the right elements for Broadway success.

Wicked is often referred to as the "untold story of the Wizard of Oz". You might say it is like a "prequel" to the Wizard of Oz story we've seen on television many times. Everyone knows that in the film version there is Glinda The Good-Witch and also the Wicked Witch of the West. Well in this stage version of Wicked The Musical, we get acquainted with Elphaba from her unusual birth where she was born "green" in body color till she goes to college and we meet her roommate Glinda. Their story isn't really what you'd expect. On stage we see how very close the girls can become yet understand the big differences that keep them apart as well.

Wicked The Musical delivers gorgeous sets which are very pretty to look at and has amazing music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, who also wrote the music for Pocahontas and Godspell years ago. There are a few really terrific spine tingling musical numbers that you'll remember for a long time to come. Wicked has a book that was written by Winnie Holzman with great direction by Broadway's Joe Mantello.
