ABOUT "WICKED"

The Broadway sensation "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, who is 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."

With a thrilling score that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," "Wicked" has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade," and by Time magazine as "a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage."

Winner of over 100 international awards, including the Grammy and three Tonys, "Wicked" has been performed in more than 100 cities in 14 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, the Philippines, Mexico and Brazil) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese. "Wicked" has amassed over $4.6 billion in global sales and has been seen by more than 55 million people worldwide.

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, "Wicked" has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Tony winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony winner Wayne Cilento. "Wicked" is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
