year after year as it continues to sell out shows all over the country, so make sure that you're able to head out and get

undergone over the past decade, it's interesting to take a look at exactly how big of a success it is. Not only has it been
a success, but Wicked has gone on to repeatedly break box office records not only in America, but throughout the entire world.
Millions of people have made it out to see just the North American tour and the West End production, meaning that the number
is much higher for world wide totals. With so many shows occurring weekly on Broadway, Wicked has become the eleventh longest
running show on Broadway in history.
This is the kind of show that will tug at the heartstrings
and slap a smile on your face, as the story and musical numbers are touching in a way that musicals often strive for but rarely
achieve. When you make it out to any of the upcoming Wicked performances you will experience more than a spectacular show
put on by incredible performers, but you will experience a range of emotions that will make you feel like you have personally
undergone a journey with the characters on the stage. This is a show that you won't want to miss, so be sure to grab your
