About The Show
One of the most interesting musical productions
to hit the scene in some time, Wicked takes a different look at the land of Oz while following the story of the Witches that
reside in that magical land. Not quite a prequel and not a sequel, Wicked is an entirely new perspective on the people and
places that were visited in the classic and iconic 1939 film "The Wizard of Oz". Following the witches of Oz before and after
Dorothy's arrival, this is a tale about an unlikely friendship between the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of
the North. So if you were hungry for more of the characters, lore, and captivating magic that made the original film and books
such an international success for years then you will be pleased as punch when you take your seats at the show. You'll undoubtedly
be on the edge of your seat for the entirety of the show, and don't be too surprised if you head home that evening with a
cavalcade of catchy songs going through your head.
As is customary for many musicals
that have become a success over the years, a cast recording of the songs from Wicked was released for the loyal fans and public
alike in 2003. However, unlike many cast recordings this one was a complete and utter success, drawing in newcomers and bringing
back longtime fans to dive into the wonderful world of Oz. Released the same year that the Broadway production went into effect,
the album eventually went platinum in 2006 and was given a Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album in 2005. The album was
a smash hit and helped fuel the fire of popularity for the show that was already burning hot with years of sold out shows.
Filled to the brim with all of the amazing songs that made the musical such a wild success, other countries such as Japan
eventually began to follow suit with their own cast recordings.
Despite how satisfying and
full an experience that Wicked was and continues to be, people have grown hungry for more of the production and have found
what they seek by means of an auxiliary production known as "Behind The Emerald Curtain". This "production" is actually a
ninety minute tour that gives fans a behind the scenes look at many of the props, masks, costumes, and sets that were actually
used in the Broadway show. In addition to these first hand viewings of what made the production seem so rich, there is also
a Q&A session with the cast varying with the location that the tour takes place in. And while this helps satiate the never
ending lust that people have grown for anything Wicked, fans are anxiously awaiting the arrival of the Wicked film adaptation
that has been in development for some time.
When you head out to watch Wicked with friends,
family, or even by yourself, the powerful emotions and songs that occur throughout the production will give a wide range of
emotions. A powerful plot and excellent performances from the cast will reel you in and not let go until the curtain falls,
leaving you feel like you have personally undergone a journey and made new friends along the way. If you want to personally
find out what this show is capable of, then the best way to do it is to grab your tickets and check it out for yourself! StubHub
