About the show

Now in its fourteenth year on Broadway, this all-ages spectacle follows 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.”

Confusing, Dated, Overrated, Raunchy, Cliched

See it if Someone familiar with the story line might like the show! However, I found it very hard to follow with poor acting, singing, and dancing.

Don't see it if I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone honestly. I went to see it because it’s a classic but it was terribly overrated.
