So come and be transported to a magical world at the Bass Concert Hall in Austin!
What does it take to be branded as wicked for all time? Definitely, there's a story behind that. We all know that the wicked witch of the west was Dorothy's nemesis; but lets go back before all that, she was a misunderstood teenage witch named Elphaba. An ordinary teen who established a remarkable bond of friendship with the blond teenager Galinda -- a friendship that reached a crossroad that took a turn on their lives and destinies. That's "Wicked"! Indeed, this is a spin-off from “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” and is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked is a Broadway musical theater play, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. It may be witchcraft or wizardry, but Wicked has cast a mesmerizing spell on critics and audiences alike. Collecting ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, the original Broadway stage musicalmanaged to win three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, along with Grammy Award for the original cast album, to boot. Music, magic, marvelousness all rolled into one. Don't miss Wicked as it hits the stage of the Bass Concert Hall in Austin, Texas on Saturday 23rd March 2024. Buy your tickets now!
