Wicked, the sensational and award winning musical based on the eponymous novel is coming to the Benedum Center!
The musical is based on the 1995 novel (written by Gregory Maguire and titled Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West) which is an alternative telling of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz (starring Judy Garland) and L. Frank Baum's classic 1900 story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz (on which the film was based). The musical features an impressive ensemble of artists who tell the story of two unlikely friends; Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Galinda the Good Witch). The musical’s first production premiered on Broadway (at the Gershwin Theatre) in 2003 and its West End debut took place at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in 2006. The former won 3 Tony Awards (for Best Actress in a Musical, Best Scenic Design, and Best Costume Design), 7 Drama Desk Awards, a Drama League Award (for Distinguished Production of a Musical), 4 Outer Critics Circle Awards (for Outstanding Broadway Musical, Outstanding Director of a Musical, Outstanding Set Design, and Outstanding Costume Design), 4 Broadway.com Audience Awards, and a Grammy Award (for Best Musical Show Album). The original West End production was nominated for 4 Laurence Olivier Awards (for Best Director, Best Costume Design, Best Lighting Design, and Best Set Design).
