Mortensen Hall at Bushnell Theatre | Hartford, Connecticut
To call the musical a visual feast doesn’t truly capture the pure excellence of the glorious WICKED spectacle, but it’s good place to start. From the exhilarating, emerald-hued journey into the Wizard’s famed home city – where a glowing green ensemble in magnificent garb are as striking as the formidable machine from which the wizard operates - to Glinda’s blinding bubble dress and that gravity-defying scene, the show really is a feat of production. The magical effects create an immersive atmosphere that’s as extraordinary for adults as it is children. What more do we need to say? Get your tickets here.
What does it take to be renowned as wicked forever? Certainly, there's a story behind it. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's adversary; but lets go back before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. An ordinary girl who established an extraordinary bond of friendship with the blond teen witch Galinda -- a friendship that reached a crossroad that took a turn on their lives and destinies. That's "Wicked"! Indeed, this is a spin-off from “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked is a Broadway musical production, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft and wizardry, but Wicked has cast a magical spell on critics and audiences alike. Garnering ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway stage musicalmanaged to win three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, along with Grammy Award for the original cast album, to boot. Music, magic, magnificence all rolled into one. Don't miss Wicked as it hits the stage of the Mortensen Hall at Bushnell Theatre in Hartford, Connecticut on Sunday 5th May 2024.
