Story

for Wicked

So much happened before Dorothy dropped in.

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.” The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget.

Reviews

for Wicked

The most complete, and completely satisfying, musical I've come across in a long time.

Review by Elysa Gardner from USA Today

Winnie Holzman's script keeps the gags coming as it cleverly subverts the film that spawned it. Packed with spectacular coups de theatre and magical effects.

Review by Charles Spencer from The Daily Telegraph

"Wizard of Oz" fans will be fascinated by all the back stories, answering such questions as "Is Glinda really that good?" and "Where did the flying monkeys come from?" But the best thing about Wicked is its stars, whose talents cast a poweful spell.

Review by Rome Torre from NY1

What a spectacle this is! Keep your eye on the witches. These wonderful girls from Oz are a delight.

Review by Linda Winer from Newsday

Built on songs by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, the show is steeped in talent.

Review by Ben Brantley from The New York Times
