Musical delves into the life of a young girl who'll eventually become the Wicked Witch of the West. Runs through 10/5.
Back by "Popular" demand. Variety calls WICKED "a cultural phenomenon," and when it last played Albuquerque in 2011 it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, WICKED is "Broadway's biggest blockbuster" (The New York Times) and "a visual spectacle of dazzling, imaginative costumes, stunning sets, captivating choreography, moving songs powerfully sung, and fantastical animals" (Albuquerque Journal). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete - and completely satisfying - new musical in a long time" (USA Today).
