I can not express enough how much I loved Wicked. This was the first Broadway show I had ever seen. Seeing Wicked made me realize that I had a love for Broadway shows that I never knew I had. Can not wait to see this show again!

Description

from Wicked
Winner of over 50 major awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy drops in, 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, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

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.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”

Declared “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly and “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety, WICKED is based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento.

This show is approximately 2 hours and 45 minutes (1 intermission). Recommended for ages 8 years and up. Children under 5 years will not be permitted in the theatre.

All the performers are singing live and that plus the pristinely choreographed music makes it an unforgettable evening. The stage and props are top notch, you really feel absorbed by every scene and the story is one that makes you laugh, cry and feel good and empowered. I will be seeing it again hopefully. The price you pay for tickets is totally worth it! Impossible to leave the theater without a smile and humming to the songs. Do yourself a favor and go see it! It's good for all the family! Try to get center orchestra seats for the best experience, not the front rows and not the last ones in the back either.

"Very well done"

This was an excellent play and the performers are top notch. It is more of a Disney style play which are fun and well done but it’s not like the traditional Broadway play (Phantom, Oklahoma, etc). This is big production, decent music, skilled performers, lots of “special effects”, etc. Great for the family, kids will love it.

Took our teenage daughter to her first Broadway Performance. She loves it as much as we did. Splurge and make sure you go and see this. It was awesome and well worth every penny. FYI. We sat in ZZ section and these seats were the best!!
