Back by "popular" demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon," and it continues to break box office records across North America. Winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is "Broadway's biggest blockbuster" (The New York Times).

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two 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. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete – and completely satisfying – musical in a long time" (USA Today).
