Wouldn’t you love to know the Wicked Witch of the West’s backstory? And what about Glinda? How did she come to be so good? Wicked considers both of these questions and more as it reshapes our understanding of what goes down in the Wizard of Oz. This highly imaginative musical features a fine book by Winnie Holzman and music and lyrics by one of Broadway’s most accomplished composers, Stephen Schwartz. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked will fill you with wonder as it takes you down a path much different than that of the Yellow Brick Road.
