Mortensen Hall at Bushnell Theatre | Hartford, Connecticut
Wicked on Broadway tells the story of Elphaba, the hated Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the kind good witch from The Wizard of Oz. Wicked offers a fresh and somewhat surprising take on a well-loved tale and is suitable for all ages. The underlying themes [staying true to oneself, doing what’s right even if it is difficult etc.] are woven throughout the story and are more relevant than ever in today’s social environment. The music is truly incredible and the message is powerful. It is impossible to watch Wicked on Broadway without becoming emotionally attached to at least one of the characters. So come and see it now at the Mortensen Hall at Bushnell Theatre.
The wicked witch of the west tormented Dorothy in the land of Oz. We all know how Dorothy walked away a winner. But have you ever thought how that witch turned wicked?
