"Wicked", begins. Check out the details of wicked tickets here, and get

Wicked is based on one of the best selling novels, "Wicked: the Life and
Times of the Wicked Witches of the West", written by Gregory Maguire.
Gregory Maguire creates a fantasy world so rich and vivid that we will
never look at the land of the Oz the same way again. In many ways, it's a
contemporised', satirical commentary on Oz. Ignoring the obvious ones
like a land where animals talk and strive to be treated like first-class
citizens. Or the short Munchkins who seek the comfort of middle-class
stability, and the Tin Man who becomes a victim of domestic violence. We
focus on the little green-skinned girl named Elphaba, who will grow up to
become the infamous Wicked Witch of the West. The Wicked witch is a
smart, prickly, and misunderstood creature who challenges all our
preconceived notions about the nature of good and evil. The story grows

Maguire's story begins with a moral about understanding and appreciating
differences among people and then becomes a cautionary tale of people in
power creating monster villains to distract from their own misdeeds. In
the course of the story, he shows that what is a monster to some is a
humble, self-sacrificing hero to others. "I'll get you my pretty and your
little dog too" is what we all remember from the movie. Wicked twists
this tag line, and manages to change our perspective. It is hard not to
fall in love with Elphaba, and not start dreading her fate. A fate that
we all know well from the movie!

The Wicked fairytale is brought to life by the Academy Award winner,
Stephen Schwartz's music and lyrics and the musical staging by the Tony
Award winner Wayne Cilento. The direction of, by 2003 and 2004 Tony Award
winner, Joe Mantello, has made the Wicked one of the spectacular plays of
the year. Wicked Tickets are in high demand!

With a cast led by Broadway legend Ben Vereen, TV icon Rue McClanahan and
breakthrough stars Shoshana Bean and Megan Hilty, there's never been a
better time to visit the Emerald City! The twists and turns in Gregory
Maguire's incredibly imaginative back-story to ‘The Wizard of Oz' makes
the audiences literally gasp with delight. But not only that, Wicked is a
truly heartfelt story of friendship and love. As Richard Zoglin of ‘Time
Magazine' put it, "If every musical had a brain, a heart and the courage
of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place!"

The plot focuses on the witches of Oz prior to Dorthy's arrival from
Kansas. The Wizard (Joel Grey) believes in "The Big Lie" and he practices
what he preaches, making everyone believe that the show's heroine, the
Wicked Witch of the West, is evil. Wicked is an ambitious musical
intended to satisfy both adults and children, with strong themes in a
surprisingly complex book by Winnie Holzman. Throwaway lines that get big
laughs are peppered throughout the script.

The scenery and costumes of the Wicked spring forth in fairytale colors,
allowing children to enjoy the show also. Parents can enjoy the comical
dialogue and masterful lyrics. The fairytale is complete with cameos by
the Tin Man, Scarecrow, and Cowardly Lion, while The Wizard, acts as the
catalyst that ultimately turns the former friends into the witches that
they become. The process of bringing "Wicked" to stage was no easy
engineering feat. Costing 14 million dollar, the play's production
involved over 150 people and took almost two years to become a reality.
Built in Calgary, Ontario the show's complex set took over a year and a
half to design and had to travel over 1,500 miles to the Curran Theatre
in San Francisco.

Wicked the musical is not Wicked the novel. While the novel is its
source, the musical presents only pieces of it, in a much simplified
form, and often diverging wildly from the novel's narrative. One might be
tempted to think all this destroys the work; but in the end it enhances
it. Wicked the musical puts the spot light on the story's numerous
ironies and interlaced levels of social commentary. The fiesta continues
for 2 hour 30 minutes of utter magnificence. You can't bear to blink your
eye during the whole gala, for fear of missing some of Wicked's glory!

Fans of Gregory Maguire's novel "Wicked" may criticize the changes made
by stage adapter Winnie Holzman. She finds a way to send Elphaba and
Fiyero into a bittersweet sunset together, and she establishes several
reference points to the familiar ‘Wizard of Oz' film that are not in the
Maguire book. But most theatergoers will find Wicked well worth the big
ticket price. It's an astoundingly good show that puts its politics
front-and-center, all wrapped up in a big, entertaining package. A pre-
Broadway run was opened in San Francisco at the start of 2003. It was not
appreciated very well by the locals. In the original cast, Idiana Menzel
acted as Elphaba, Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda and Robert Morse played the
role of The Wizard. With extensive significant changes, it was reopened
later that year at Gershwin Theatre in New York. Morse was replaced by
Joel Gray. There were assorted reviews initially but the general mood
became a lot more appreciative. The tide completely turned when "Wicked"
got the acclaim it really deserved. Wicked was nominated for ten Tony
Awards, including the award for the best Musical. Menzel got the award of
the Best Actress in a Musical. The cast also nabbed a Grammy Award for
the Best Musical Show Album.

This fantasy-filled musical was the winner of three 2004 Tony Awards
including prizes for Best Costume Design and Best Scenic Design. Wicked
also had the privilege of being the winner of 2004 Drama Desk Award for
Outstanding Musical Award! The uphill effort and zealous exertion of Joe
Mantello has made Wicked a true spectacle for the eyes and ears! The
popularity of this musical results in long lines to buy Wicked show
tickets! The only element of the production that isn't consistently first
class is Schwartz's songs. The tunes are a mixed bag, with several bland
and forgettable power ballads included with his more distinctive and
finely crafted songs. Most of the music rides on the same middling
tempos, and little stands out melodically.

"Wicked" earned back its entire initial investment by December 21, 2004.
In its first year it grossed more than 56 million dollar. The show has
been playing to capacity crowds for almost every recent performance and
grosses more than a million dollars every week. The show had a 14 million
dollar capitalization. The show set out for extensive national touring in
2005. Successful tours were made to Toronto, Chicago, Denver, Dallas, Los
Angles, Fort Lauderdale and Hartford. In late June of 2005 a permanent
production of "Wicked" separate from the national tour, opened at
Chicago's Oriental Theatre with an open-ended run. "Wicked" will be the
first show in decades to run on a permanent basis simultaneously on
Broadway and in Chicago's North Loop theatre district. The show also has
a heart, a brain, and the nerve to have opened on Broadway. Wicked is a
must see show.

Wicked co-producer David Stone reported that the show, which plays the
1,800-seat Gershwin Theatre, had a 26 million dollar advance. "The
advance and the weekly grosses are now higher than they have ever been,"
said Stone. The musical took in 1,196,658 dollar more than any show on
Broadway! No surprise, given it's popularity among the literati and the
glitterati. And the relative difficulty in obtaining tickets. Don't
