Today is the last day to see Glinda and Elphaba before they fly away as the Tony winning musical Wicked continues at Robinson Center Performance Hall until January 19.
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked, has won a Grammy and three Tony Awards. Wicked features songs by Stephen Schwartz (Godspell, Pippin, and Working) and a book by Winnie Holzman (“My So Called Life,” “Once And Again” and “thirtysomething”). It tales the untold story of the witches of Oz. The musical is directed by multiple Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out; Assassins; The Receptionist).
Two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. “Wicked” tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
Presented by Celebrity Attractions, the production takes center stage at Robinson Center Music Hall for a limited three-week engagement.
