With the musical production of Wicked quickly becoming one of the most popular shows on the
musical scene, it was only a matter of time until the inevitable cast recording release became available for the public to
snatch up. That day came in 2003, the same year that Wicked hit the scene in the first place, with the cast recording featuring
almost every single number that appeared on the stage save for the songs "The Wizard and I (Reprise)" and "The Wicked Witch
of the East". Even without these two songs the release was a smash hit, not only satiating the musical lust of people who
had already seen and adored the show, but making the music available to those who hadn't yet seen it. This was not only a
huge success, but also helped increase the popularity of the show, as more and more people were being introduced to the music.
The release was a certified hit, going platinum in 2006 and winning a Grammy Award in 2005 for Best Musical Show Album. With
the success of the release readily apparent, cast recordings around the world began to be released from countries such as
Germany and Japan.
There are times when a certain thing will reach such incredible success
that it will subsequently be adapted for the stage all over the world, but Wicked has taken this to a whole new level. Often
times when a musical such as Wicked becomes successful it will have tours and new productions pop up all around the world,
but more often than not the production will continue on with the original language. So for example when Annie the musical
became a success, it later went on to tour around the UK and Australia alike, to areas that also spoke English. However, Wicked
has seen such amazing success that it has been translated and adapted for countries all around the world. Starting with Japan,
the musical was moving all across the world, being translated for countries such as: Germany, the Netherlands, China, Korea,
Mexico, and more! With Wicked conquering the entire world, it's only a matter of time until the production sees an adaptation
for the big screen! There seems to be no stopping the success that Wicked is finding all across the globe, and with any luck
the musical will continue with it's success for years to come.
As if it was ever a wonder,
the fans have been absolutely loving Wicked ever since it first hit the musical scene back in 2003. Following intriguing and
somewhat familiar characters in a familiar world that is full of magic and splendor is the perfect place to have a musical,
and Wicked has shown time and time again that people aren't done with their Oz fascination! With so many fantastic musical
numbers scattered throughout the show, you'll be on the edge of your seat throughout the show while simultaneously trying
to catch your breath! There's good reason that people continue to line up and wait with feverish anticipation for each upcoming
show of the delightful production, and now is the perfect chance for you to personally find out for yourself what all the
buzz is about! Tickets are now on sale at StubHub so make sure that you'll be able to make it to the show by getting your
