Get your Wicked on Broadway tickets before you travel to New York. It’s easy to buy your theatre tickets online, saving you time and money. Wicked the musical on Broadway is a beloved show that has broken box office records and won many awards. It’s performed in the Gershwin Theatre and portrays how the Wicked Witch of the West became, well, wicked. As it turns out, she wasn’t always wicked!
The Wicked Witch of the West
The musical is both a prequel and a sequel to The Wizard of Oz which means that it starts off before Dorothy dropped in and continues on after her arrival. Dorothy herself, however, is only but a silhouette in the musical, referenced by her ruby slippers … which she apparently stole. Instead, the main characters of the show are Glinda and Elphaba who major in sorcery at Shiz University. Glinda is a self-absorbed popular blonde while Elphaba is an intelligent outcast who seems to look a little different than the others. Despite their differences (and initial loathing!) Glinda and Elphaba become roommates and then good friends. The musical tracks the toils and troubles of their friendship – including falling in love with the same guy! But is this what transforms Elphaba into the Wicked Witch of the West?
Flying Monkeys and the Wizard of Oz
As much as the story has going for it, it’s not the only reason why Wicked is popular. When Glinda sings about how it’s shrewd to be “Popular” the lyrics and melody make you want to sing along. And, luckily, there are more songs like that! The costumes too are truly spectacular, it’s no wonder then that the musical won a Tony Award in 2004 for best costume design. Together with the set design, this is something that truly brings the land of Oz, and more importantly the Emerald City, to life. Flying monkeys included.
The songs are catchy and for most of the musical, you’ll probably be rooting for both the “Good Witch” and the “Wicked Witch” as they are both endearings in one way or another. I definitely recommend going to Wicked or one of the many Broadway shows when in New York as they are highly entertaining!
