Broadway In Chicago has announced that Wicked will return to Chicago — where the hit musical had played a lengthy, sit-down run — in celebration of its 10th anniversary on Broadway.
The Stephen Schwartz-Winnie Holzman musical will play the Oriental Theatre (24 West Randolph) for a limited eight-week engagement, Oct. 30-Dec. 21, 2013.
"We are thrilled to bring Wicked back home to Chicago,” said Lou Raizin, president of Broadway In Chicago, in a statement. “To be part of Wicked’s 10th anniversary celebration and once again share Wicked with Chicago audiences is a great honor.”
Tickets are now available for groups of 15 or more by calling (312) 977-1710. Individual tickets will go on sale at a later date.
Adapted from the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked delves into the back story of the iconic characters from Oz. The hit musical has a score by Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman, direction by Joe Mantello and musical staging by Wayne Cilento.
