About Wicked on Broadway

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.”

WICKED is the must-see cultural phenomenon for audiences of all ages.

Wicked is a musical and Broadway sensation that looks at what happened in the Land of Oz, but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman named Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin. She's smart, fiery, and misunderstood, and she possesses an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde named Galinda 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 on Broadway has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” The show has gone on to perform all over the world and is Broadway's fifth-longest-running show. Time Magazine cheers Wicked on Broadway too: “If every musical had the brain, heart, and courage of WICKED, Broadway really would be a magical place.”

What to Watch For

  • Wicked composer Stephen Schwartz asked his daughter for help writing the lyrics to “For Good.” He asked her what she would say if she could never see her best friend again, and the song’s lyrics are a version of what his daughter told him.
  • The Wicked Witch of the West, also known as Elphaba, gets her name in the musical from combining the phonetic sounds of The Wizard of Oz novelist L. Frank Baum's initials: L.F.B.
  • Did you know that Elphaba flies in Wicked? When Elphaba soars above the skies at the end of Act 1, she’s not on a wire. The actress stands on a small platform, and when it rises, it looks like her dress is expanding infinitely.
  • Listen carefully to the first few notes of what Stephen Schwartz calls the “Unlimited Theme” — it appears in “The Wizard and I” and “For Good.” The first seven notes as Elphaba sings “I’m limited…” are the same as “Somewhere Over the Rainbow" from The Wizard of Oz.
  • Wicked is based most directly on the 1995 book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. The musical is also set to be adapted into a film starring Cynthia Erivo as Elphaba and Ariana Grande as Glinda!
  • Wicked tickets are recommended for children aged 8 and older. Children under the age of 5 will not be permitted in the theatre. Please be aware that all patrons, regardless of age, must have a ticket.
