Bass Concert Hall | Austin, Texas
The musical revolves around the unlikely friendship between two sorcery students, green-skinned misfit Elphaba and little-miss-popular Glinda. The two, of course, go on to fulfil their destinies as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda The Good. The struggles of Elphaba are exquisitely conveyed by Jacqueline Hughes, who starred in the UK and Ireland tour to fantastic acclaim. (In some shows, the role may be played by Jodie Steele, fresh off her run in War of the Worlds in the West End.) The role of blonde bimbo Glinda is played to perfection by Carly Anderson, who recently performed in Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum. So come see these phenomenal actors at the Bass Concert Hall in Austin!
We've all heard happy-ever-after stories of Princes and Princesses, of Heroes and Heroines. But have you ever heard the story of the wicked witch? From the land of Oz, survey a parallel cosmos to unearth the witches' story. Wicked is a Broadway performance with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked began its life on stage in 2003 and has since garnered high praises. The original Broadway production bagged three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, and a Grammy Award for the original cast recording, which generated the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. This awe-inspiring Wicked performance is a dazzling work of art with an timeless and widespread appeal. Wicked is headed to this neck of the woods, so get your tickets for it runs on Wednesday 13th March 2024 at the Bass Concert Hall, Austin, Texas.
