Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is the winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One–born with emerald green skin–is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.


Wicked has been declared “a cultural phenomenon” by Variety and remains one of the most in-demand shows on tour. It features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin and Academy Award-winner for “Pocahontas” and “The Prince of Egypt”), a book by Winnie Holzman (“My So Called Life,” “Once and Again” and “thirtysomething”) and direction by two-time Tony-winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Love! Valour! Compassion! and The Vagina Monologues). For more information, visit
