Bass Concert Hall | Austin, Texas
Wicked on Broadway tells the story of Elphaba, the despised Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda, the lovely good witch from The Wizard of Oz. Wicked delivers a fresh and somewhat surprising take on a well-loved tale and is appropriate for all ages. The underlying themes [staying true to oneself, doing what’s right even if it is difficult etc.] are woven throughout the story and are more relevant than ever in today’s society. The music is truly incredible and the message is powerful. It is impossible to see Wicked on Broadway without becoming emotionally involved to at least one of the characters. So come and see it now at the Bass Concert Hall.
You all know 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, explore a parallel universe 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 debuted on stage in 2003 and has since merited 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 produced the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. This magnificent Wicked musical theater play is a magnificent work of art with an unfading and worldwide appeal. Wicked is headed to this neck of the woods, so buy your tickets for it runs on Saturday 30th March 2024 at the Bass Concert Hall, Austin, Texas.
