Wicked, the Musical

Wicked. This high-energy, imaginative musical is a treat for everyone.

Based on Winnie Holzman’s novel, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Wicked takes us back to and beyond the 1939 masterpiece The Wizard of Oz.

Witches of Oz

Wicked tells the story of the many witches of Oz, specifically on the lives and loves of two opposing forces; Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, owner of the magical, sparkly ruby slippers Dorothy could never remove and Glinda, the lovely Good Witch of the North.

Elphaba, green-skinned, ugly and mean, and Glinda, beautiful and sympathetic, become roommates in college and form a deep friendship, especially over animals, which are to be seen but not heard.

Animals are to be continually caged, something Elphaba rails against.

Freeing the winged monkeys, by natural gifts of levitation, forces work against Elphaba, causing her to flee the Emerald City and hole up in her castle fortress.

Still, she does allow those monkeys to spy for the Oz, when a certain house lands on her sister, setting in motion a hair raising escapade.

Wicked opened on Broadway, at the Gershwin Theater, in October, 2003.

Tony, Drama Desk & Grammy Award Winner

The cast included Idina Menzel as Elphaba, Kristen Chenowith as Glinda and Joel Grey as the Wizard.

This play won 3 Tony Awards, 6 Drama Desk Awards and a Grammy Award for the collaborative cast album.

It has leapt into history as a musical showstopper for the ages.

Spend a magical evening with Wicked during its run in Central Florida.

You will be bewitched.
