About the show

Now in its sixteenth year on Broadway, this all-ages musical spectacle tells the untold true story of the Witches of Oz. More…

"Wicked" looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

See it if Wicked is the show on Broadway that is a must see regardless. The music and book are fantastic, and it is always mesmerizing to hear Elphaba

Don't see it if The show definitely lacked energy all across the board. It was not as engaging as I would have like it to me. Glinda also struggled a bit.
