Wicked Turns Five with Yellow Brick Concert and Starry Bash

Think you know every word to every song ever associated with hit musical Wicked? Well, you might be wrong, as benefit concert The Yellow Brick Road Not Taken, which celebrated the show’s fifth anniversary, proved on October 27 at the Gershwin Theatre. The star-studded event featured cut songs and scenes (including numbers like “The Emerald City Stomp,” replaced in the finished production by “Dancing Through Life”) from early drafts of the blockbuster, debuting at the one-night-only event (all proceeds went to Bette Midler’s very worthy New York Restoration Project). The concert welcomed Wicked alums Shoshana Bean, Stephanie J.
