Reasons Wicked will leave you changed for good
Posted Jul 28, 2017
1. The story is recognizable, yet unexpected
A lot happened before Dorothy dropped in, and this musical explores it all. Based on Gregory Maguire’s best-selling novel, Wicked takes clever twists, funny turns and touching moments in a creative combination to create a musical people can’t stop raving about.
2. Speaking of what people say…the show certainly is ‘popular’
No, really. Wicked is the ninth-longest running Broadway show and the second highest grossing show ever to be on Broadway. It has performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world and has been translated into six languages. It has won more than 100 international awards including the Grammy Award® and three Tony Awards®. It has been seen by more than 50 million people world wide and you will want to be one of them!
3. The meaning of the story that will leave you changed for good
Acceptance and tolerance are just some of the important lessons highlighted through beautiful storytelling and lovable characters who also demonstrate the power of friendship, love and trust.
4. The music will make you feel like you can defy gravity
Chances are, even if you haven’t seen the show, you will be singing along to songs like Defying Gravity and For Good. Your toes will be taping to Dancing Through Life and Popular and you will be blown away by The Wizard and I, As Long as You’re Mine, I’m Not That Girl…and well, all of them! This amazing, memorable score is something that you will be talking about long after the performance is over.
5. The swankified production
