Wicked on Broadway

Wicked is the most popular selling show on Broadway and for good reason. It is uplifting and relatable to theater goers of absolutely any age. If you are thinking about taking your family to see a show this season, the Wicked Musical in New York must be top on your list. The sets, costumes, and acting are over the top incredible but it’s the songs that bring down the house night after night. We guarantee that after hearing them once, you and your entire family won’t be able to get them out of your head for weeks – and that’s a good thing!

Everyone has heard the story of Dorothy, Toto, her shiny red shoes, her three unlikely friends, and Glinda the Good Witch. Their tale is the classic and most well known story told about the Land of Oz. Wicked tells another side – The sometimes dark but altogether incredible story of The Wicked Witch of the West and how perhaps she wasn’t so Wicked after all.

The story starts when two young girls meet as sorcery students at Shiz University. Glinda is beautiful, blonde, outgoing, and extremely popular. Elphaba is shy, misunderstood, and her skin happens to be an unfortunate shade of green. Though these two girls are very different, they eventually form an unlikely friendship. Meanwhile, in the Emerald City of Oz, the Wizard is up to no good but Elphaba seems to be the only one willing to stand up to him. As a result of her defiance, he deems her “Wicked” and she is forced into exile. In a dramatic moment, Elphaba asks Glinda to come with her but Glinda can’t bring herself to stray from her popular and comfortable existence.

Years pass and Elphaba gains quite a reputation for trouble making and earns the title “The Wicked Witch of the West”.  What most people don’t know is that her supposedly wicked acts are really an attempt to force the Wizard to stop mistreating the citizens of Oz.

Though Wicked is a story of fantasy and magic, it is truly an allegorical masterpiece. Elphaba and Glindas’ struggles to do what’s right and stand against societal standards of perfection are timeless and true. Everyone who sees this show will fall in love with these two women whose true friendship endures, despite everything.
