Once upon a time in the Land of Oz, there was a girl and her dog – no, scrub that. This musical takes place way before the arrival of Dorothy Gale and her pooch Toto. Wicked is the story of two magically inclined women, one blonde, and one green of skin – and their coming-of-age as the forces of good and (perceived) ‘wicked’. Discover the musical phenomenon of the new century when it flies into Detroit Opera House in Detroit , MI , August 7 – September 2, 2018
Based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.
Wicked is the smash hit of the new millennium that still continues to break records over 15 years later with Stephen Schwartz’s breath-taking original songs, including ‘Defying Gravity’, ‘Popular’ and ‘As Long As You’re Mine’, creating the perfect soundtrack to this beloved new classic.
