Wicked contains music
and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, as well as a book by Winnie Holzman. It is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked:
The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum's
classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The musical is told from the point of view of the witches of
the Land of Oz. The play's plot chronicles Dorothy's arrival in Oz from Kansas and includes several references to the 1939
film and Baum's novel. Wicked tells the story of two unexpected friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda
(the Good Witch of the North), who struggle with their very different personalities and perspectives, fights over the same
love interest, dismay over the Wizard's corrupt government, and finally, Elphaba's public downfall. The Joe Mantello-directed
and Wayne Cilento-choreographed original production of Wicked premiered on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre in October 2003,
after finishing pre-Broadway SHN tryouts at San Francisco's Curran Theatre in May 2003. The musical's original stars are Idina
Menzel as Elphaba, Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda, and Joel Grey as the Wizard. The original Broadway production was honored
with three Tony Awards and six Drama Desk Awards. Its cast album won a Grammy Award. It has played 3,886 shows, making Wicked
the 12th longest-running Broadway show in history.
Composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz discovered writer Gregory
Maguire's 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West while on vacation. Schwartz immediately saw
its potential for a theatrical adaptation. However, there was one problem—Maguire had released the rights to Universal,
who had planned to make a live-action feature film. So, Schwartz met with Maguire in Connecticut in 1998 and persuaded him
to release them for a stage production, and then begged Universal producer Marc Platt to realize the novel's potential for
adaptation. Platt accepted, and signed on as joint producer of the project with Universal and David Stone.
is often thought to be a political, social, and ethical commentary on the difference between good and evil. It is set in the
Land of Oz, in the years leading up to when Dorothy arrives. The story focuses on Elphaba, the green-skinned mischievous girl
who grows up to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Galinda, the beautiful, blonde, popular girl who grows up to become
Glinda the Good Witch of the North. Schwartz collaborated with Emmy Award-winning writer Winnie Holzman to brainstorm the
plot's outline in the span of a year. He also met with producer Marc Platt to work on the structural outline of the show,
intending for it to be an original stage piece instead of just a play-by-play adaptation of Maguire's book.
