Wicked at Gershwin Theatre
Gershwin Theatre

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 is smart, fiery and misunderstood; the other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The musical tells tells the story of how these unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. Starring Rachel Tucker, Kara Lindsay, Jonah Platt, Kathy Fitzgerald and PJ Benjamin.

Wicked takes a revisionist look at an American icon of evil and discovers how the young Elphaba, a passionate, committed young woman from Oz, becomes the Wicked Witch of the West. Her character is contrasted with that of her school roommate Glinda, who grows up to be the Good Witch.
