Today, March 31, the Gershwin Theatre (222 West 51st Street) will be visited by thousands of NYC public school students as the theatre arts and education organization Inside Broadway presents its popular program CREATING THE MAGIC. Featuring the cast and production crew of the hit long-running Broadway musical Wicked, the 80 minute program will be offered at 11:00am and 1:45pm.
Providing a truly unique Broadway experience, Inside Broadway's free CREATING THE MAGIC program will be presented to over 3,000 New York City public school students who will get a behind-the-scenes look at the inner world of Broadway and learn about career opportunities in the theater.

WICKED, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz...but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin -- smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships...until the world decides to call one "good," and the other one "wicked." With a thrilling score by Stephen Schwartz that includes the hits "Defying Gravity," "Popular" and "For Good," Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as "the defining musical of the decade." Time Magazine cheers, "if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place."
Since 1982, Inside Broadway (Founder/Executive Director, Michael Presser) has impacted the lives of nearly one million New York City public school students with its one-of-a-kind theatre arts and education programs that enrich, educate and foster new generations of theatergoers.
"We are thrilled to offer a special behind-the-scenes look at the magical show Wicked to the students in our program. This show represents everything that makes our city and Broadway great" says Inside Broadway's Executive Director Michael Presser.
