The much anticipated opening of Wicked is on Wednesday March 12 and it will be playing at the Majestic Theatre for 24 performances through Sunday March 30. Wicked is based on the 1995 bestselling novel by Gregory Maguire. It is the winner of 35 major awards including a Grammy and three Tony Awards.
Wicked is the story of two girls who meet in the land of Oz before Dorothy drops in. One is Elphaba, the future Wicked Witch of the West who is born with emerald green skin and is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is Glinda, the Good Witch of the North who is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Their friendship is put to the test through a series of events including a similar love interest, their reaction to the Wizard’s corrupt government and Elphaba’s eventual fall from grace. The plot makes several references to events in the 1939 film ‘The Wizard of Oz’ as a back story.
There will be a day of performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats for sale for $25 each paid in cash only. Two and a half hours before each performance people who show up at the Majestic Theatre box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum and thirty minutes later names will be drawn. Participants must be at the box office in person and have a valid photo id. There is a limit of two tickets per person.
