Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is the story of The Land of Oz, The Emerald City and The Yellow Brick Road long before Dorothy and Toto. Concerning Glinda and Elphaba, better known as The Good Witch and The Wicked Witch of The West, this is the story of an unlikely friendship and how love, ambitions and accomplishments dictate the paths they chose, and the rest of their lives.
Wicked is the smash hit of the noughts, that's still breaking records over a decade later, with Stephen Schwartz' breath-taking original songs, including 'Defying Gravity', 'Popular' and 'As Long As You're Mine', creating the perfect soundtrack to this instant classic.
Pushed together as room-mates at The University of Shiz, initially the beautiful and popular Glinda clashes with the fiery, misunderstood, green-skinned Elphaba. Soon they learn to put their differences aside, and form an unexpected bond, that stays with them for years to come. An uplifting and affirming adventure, get your tickets for the hottest tour in town!
Wicked witch of the west Elphaba's green transformation is down to MAC eye-shadow. Pots of the emerald hue in 'landscape Green' are mixed with water because it's non-smudging powers are the most long-lasting!
