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.

What happened before Dorothy landed in Oz? It all started at Shiz University, where the perky, popular Galinda is tricked into rooming with the gloomy (and green) Elphaba, who has only come to the school to care for her sister, Nessarose. Galinda spends all her time worrying about getting into Madame Morrible’s magic seminar and winning the attention of Winkie prince Fiyero, while Elphaba senses some mischief going on behind the scenes in Oz. All of the “Animals,” including their teacher Dr. Dillamond, are being silenced and mocked. When Elphaba showcases a proclivity for magic, Madame Morrible takes her and Galinda to meet the Wizard, but while Elphaba’s dreams of social change might endear her to Fiyero, the Wizard — and the world — has other plans for her destiny. Based on Gregory Maguire’s novel of the same name, Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s musical explores the underbelly of Oz and how the good — and the wicked — might not always be what they seem.

What to watch for

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 Witch of the West, a.k.a. “Elphaba,” gets her name in the musical from combining the phonetic sounds of “Wizard of Oz’s” initials: L.F.B.

There are no strings: When Elphaba (spoiler alert) flies at the end of Act 1, she’s not on a wire. The actress stands on a small platform, 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.
