Open Run

Forget Dorothy, the juiciest tale from the land of Oz concerns the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friendship with Glinda The Good Witch. Featuring more iconic numbers than you can nod your witches hat to ('Defying Gravity', 'Popular'), this three-time Tony winner is modern Broadway's biggest original musical and a glorious addition to the Oz mythology.

The largest of all the Broadway theatres, the Gershwin is located next door to its sister theater Circle in the Square at the Paramount Plaza building in mid-Manhattan. Named for the legendary Gershwin brothers, George and Ira, is also home of the American Theatre Hall of Fame, where inductees are given their own plaque during an official ceremony. Despite a disastrous start with Via Galactica in 1972 starring Raul Julia (it lost a million dollars and closed after only seven performances!), it has since gone on to host some of the most successful musicals, and has hosted Broadway smash hit Wicked since 2003.
