Wicked Tickets for a Wicked Live Theater Show
Growing up one of the movies most kids can remember is the Wizard of Oz. There was nothing like getting a ticket to a old theater and watching the movie with some pop corn.
Something that was easily recreated in homes across the country every year when the movie was shown on televisions. First in black and white, then switching to color while Dorothy was following the yellow brick road.
The best character in the whole show was the Wicked Witch of the West. And that is where the show Wicked picks up the story.
Taking us all back to the beginning answering all the questions that the original movie had left out.
Wicked tells the story of Elphaba born with emerald green skin, smart, fiery and misunderstood, the future Wicked Witch of the West and her relationship with Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, beautiful, ambitious and very popular.
Their friendship struggles through their opposing dispositions and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love interest, their reactions to the Wizard’s corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba’s public fall from grace.
Their buddy story is only one of several story lines and subplots in a carefully constructed, surprise filled musical adventure.
If you have seen the movie Oz, this story adds even more to the back story that was given there concerning how the wicked witch came to be.
The music and lyrics are brilliantly selected and presented by Stephen Schwartz.
Wicked is a truly heartfelt story of friendship and love.
