Wicked

WICKED online playbill"It’s embedded in our culture now, as solid as bricks in the yellow brick road."
Des Moines Register 'WICKED' Review

"It’s a true treasure of American theater and is not to be missed, ever."
Star 102.5 'WICKED' Review

Back by “Popular” demand.  Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon,” and when it first played Des Moines, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). 

Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - new musical in a long time" (USA Today).
