Broadway has seldom hosted a stage phenomenon as successful as the musical Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz—or just plain Wicked, as its legions of fans call it.  Its origins can be traced to a novel by Gregory Maguire that was first published in 1995:  Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, which itself is a revisionist version of the story told first in L. Frank Baum’s 1900 book and its perennially popular 1939 film adaptation, The Wizard of Oz.  Maguire’s novel takes an unusual slant, telling the story from the perspective of the Wicked Witch of the West.

The book came to the attention of famed composer Stephen Schwartz, who secured the rights to the material and went about developing a musical version with screenwriter/actress Winnie Holzman.  The musical’s initial pre-Broadway run took place at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, in June 2003; critics and audiences found much to praise, but the consensus seemed to hold that the production had substantial flaws.  In response, Schwartz, Holzman, and the rest of the team spent a few months tweaking the material prior to the Broadway premiere, in October 2003.  The extra effort paid off:  Wicked became a smash Broadway hit, breaking box office records and winning three Tony Awards.  The cast recording is a success in its own right, as it has sold several million copies and earned a Grammy Award.

Since then, Wicked has become a national and international sensation, with successful tours all over the world.  If you’re looking for Wicked tickets, we have them right here at FrontRowTickets.com—just select the venue and date below.

08/18/2014: Stephen Schwartz, the composer of Wicked, has recently commented on exactly when the hit musical will make it to the big screen. Any answers given in regards to when preparation for the movie will actually begin have been extraordinarily vague up until this point. Schwartz seems to think this very well could be Wicked's year to make the jump, and fans of the bewitching show could not be more excited!


07/22/2104: Famous youtube vocalists Peter Hollens and Nick Pitera have collaborated to create a Wicked medley composed for men's voices. The two had been debating which song to use for a duet for months, and the idea of a Wicked medley was the only one that seemed to stick. Hollens explained the Broadway tunes suit Pitera's voice beautifully, and the two recorded the duet in Hollens' garage in Oregon. Pitera took care of their attire for the video, while Hollens attended to the audio. Next time you're cruising around on youtube, be sure to check out this duo's musical creation!


07/08/2104: After performing the hit Broadway musical across the pond for two years, Gina Beck is traveling to the land of stars and stripes to start the U.S. Tour. The actress played Glinda back in the West End, and explained she has had put a lot of effort toward learning her part with an American accent. She also commented that Glinda's persona was a bit different in London. She was seen as more of a daddy's girl, while Americans view her as the queen bee of high school or a peppy cheerleader type. Its so interesting to consider the different cultural spins on art that is appreciated around the world.


07/01/2014: It looks like our beloved musical is making its way to theaters! There is a bit of controversy concerning the question of who will be playing the lead role. Idina Menzel, the Tony Award winner and the voice behind Frozen's hit song, “Let It Go”, is currently favored for the role. Lea Michelle of Glee, however, has also expressed interest in the invigorating role of Elphaba. Who would you choose for the role?


06/23/2014: The songs from Wicked are contagious and performed by many. Kristen Chenoweth and Lea Michele performed the iconic ballad 'For Good' over the past weekend. Chenoweth was in the original Broadway production, in which she performed the ballad with her co-star, Idina Menzel. Michele, the glee star, was delighted to share the ballad with Chenoweth, as the broadway star had helped her last year when Corey Monteith passed away. The two sung the ballad with heart, drawing tears from every eye in the audience.

    WINNERS ANNOUNCED AT THE FOURTH ANNUAL WICKED YOUNG WRITERS' AWARD

    Friday, August 08, 2014

    REVEALS YOUNG PEOPLE WRITING FROM THE HEART TO MAKE SENSE OF A COMPLICATED WORLD


    Photo by Dan Wooller


    The Wicked Young Writers' Award today announced its winners for 2014 at a prestigious ceremony at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, home of the award-winning musical WICKED.

    The winning and highly commended entries included stories and poems about bullying, love, dementia and memory loss and the traumatic effects of war. This year the award received over 5000 entries from individuals and schools all across the UK and Northern Ireland.

    The ceremony was hosted by Savannah Stevenson who stars as Glinda, and prizes were presented by Michael Morpurgo, best-selling author of War Horse and Chair Judge of the Award. The Award's judges, Michael McCabe, Executive Producer of WICKED, and performance poet and writer Dean Atta, also attended the ceremony. HRH The Duchess of Cornwall is Patron of the Award.

    In addition to performing musical numbers from the hit show, WICKED cast members also performed readings of the winning entries, revealed as: Liya Khan, age 6 from Birmingham, joint-winners Susanna Tredinnick, age 10 from Harpenden and Caitlin Wilkins, age 10 from Windlesham, Surrey, Rhian Hutchings, age 14 from Pontardawe, and joint-winners Freya Carter, age 15 from Sheffield, Zainab Abbass, age 15 from Sheffield, and, Chris Pritchard, age 23 from Gloucester.

    The Award judges chose the winners from over 5000 entries from individuals and schools across the country, revealing a wide range of different voices and themes. In the younger categories, the entries were funny, scary and surprisingly complex: an alien helps a lonely little girl with cerebral palsy make new friends; a bully is given a dose of his own medicine; a happy, greedy Venus flytrap devours the world; and a surprisingly funny and mature poem about Albert Einstein. The older age categories' entries ranging from 11-17 year-olds, peopled with characters ranging from soldiers suffering with PTS to unwed teenage mothers, used sophisticated imagery and language to explore alienation, death, self-harm and struggling to conform without losing one's identity. The eldest 18-25 year old category was surprisingly mature, unselfconscious and insightful, providing a first look at the emerging voices of a new generation: moving, dark and sometimes playful themes comprised of repressed sexuality, love, murder and dementia. This is writing directly from the heart, trying to make sense of a complicated world.

    During the ceremony, Dean Atta led an interactive literacy workshop titled "My Wicked Poem"; prompted by the show's theme of friendship, the audience of 100 shortlisted finalists and their guests created a brand new piece of creative writing in just 20mins.

    The long-running West End show launched the Award in 2010 to recognise excellence in writing, encourage creativity and help develop writing talent in young people between 5 and 25 years of age from across all backgrounds and areas of the UK.

    Michael Morpurgo said of this year's Award. "All these talented young writers have allowed their imagination to live and breathe. They haven't been afraid to tell their stories and speak their poems down and to express themselves with originality and flair."

    WICKED's Executive Producer Michael McCabe said: "We've been inspired and excited by the creative skills and extraordinary pieces that we've received this year. Congratulations to our 2014 winners, and we now look forward to encouraging even more young people across the country to express themselves through writing."

    The shortlisted finalist entries from the 5-17 year old age-categories have been published in an anthology celebrating the 2014 Wicked Young Writers' Award. The shortlisted entries from the 18-25 year old age category have been published in an e-anthology downloadable from the Wicked Young Writers' Award website (www.wickedyoungwriters.com).

    The Wicked Young Writers' Award has also been working with the National Literacy Trust for two years on a programme of joint events at literary festivals and conferences to highlight both reading and writing skills amongst young people.

     

    WICKED SURPASSES THE RUN OF ME AND MY GIRL TO BECOME THE 14th LONGEST-RUNNING MUSICAL IN WEST END THEATRE HISTORY

    Friday, August 08, 2014

    WICKED, the smash hit musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, has surpassed the run of Me and My Girl to become the 14th longest-running musical in West End theatre history.

    The 1985 revival of the famous Noel Gay musical, that originally starred Robert Lindsay and Emma Thompson, played for 3303 performances* at London's Adelphi Theatre before ending its hugely successful run on 16 January 1993. *Information verified by the Society of London Theatre.

    Recently acclaimed as "one of the country's strongest and most enduringly popular shows" (Harper's Bazaar, June 2014), the London production of the global musical phenomenon is now also the 10th longest-running show currently playing in the West End.

    While continuing its open-ended London run at the Apollo Victoria Theatre, a spectacular UK touring production of WICKED is currently playing at Birmingham Hippodrome (until 6 September 2014) and continues touring until the summer of 2015.

The producers cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.

    Based on the international best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in 'The Wonderful Wizard of Oz', WICKED tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

    WICKED has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman, musical staging by Wayne Cilento and is directed by two-time Tony Award® winner Joe Mantello. WICKED is based on the novel, 'Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West', by Gregory Maguire.

    Monday, July 14, 2014

    WILLEMIJN VERKAIK DEPARTS SATURDAY 19 JULY 2014

    WICKED, the award-winning musical that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz, is proud to welcome back the original British Elphaba, Kerry Ellis, who will recreate her celebrated performance from Monday 4 August until Saturday 25 October 2014*. Willemijn Verkaik will play her final performance as Elphaba this Saturday (19 July 2014 at 7.30pm**). She departs the production in order to have surgery to address an ongoing back condition.

    Michael McCabe, Executive Producer of Wicked said: "We are all so sorry that Willemijn's truly remarkable international journey with Wicked, that began in Germany in 2007, should end prematurely. It is only her extraordinary determination and professionalism that has enabled her to continue performing to date despite enduring extreme pain and discomfort. We are very grateful to her and pleased that many thousands of West End theatregoers did get the opportunity of seeing her wonderful performance as Elphaba since she joined the cast in November 2013. On behalf of the entire company, we wish Willemijn a full and speedy recovery. In the meantime, we are absolutely thrilled to welcome back the incredible Kerry Ellis to the role that won her awards both in the West End and on Broadway for a very special limited season."

    Willemijn Verkaik said: "To be given the chance to play Elphaba in four different countries is something I am incredibly grateful for. Now I have to cut my West End run short and it's absolutely devastating to me. I've been fighting this injury for a few months but was determined not to let anything get in the way of my West End debut and certainly not wanting to disappoint the audiences. But I have to face the facts. I thank producers David Stone and Michael McCabe and our General Managers, Playful Productions, the cast and crew and all of you so much for all your support in this difficult time. I promise I'll be back on stage soon, in better shape than ever!"

    Kerry Ellis said: "It is an absolute thrill for me to be returning to this amazing show and the incredible role of Elphaba that is so very special to me. I can't wait to be green again and join this fantastic cast".

    *Kerry Ellis will not be appearing in Wicked on Tuesday 19 August, Saturday 27 September, Thursday 2 October - Friday 10 October, Tuesday 14 - Thursday 16 October and Saturday 18 October due to her concert appearances.

    The producers cannot guarantee the appearance of any particular artist, which is always subject to illness and holidays.


    **Willemijn Verkaik will play her final performance as Elphaba on Saturday 19 July 2014. She is currently scheduled to play all evening performances w/c Monday 14 July. At all other performances the role will be played by Emma Hatton.
