âA gorgeous musical that brought tears to our eyesâ (The Huffington Post), Wicked is one of the worldâs most celebrated, spectacular and successful stage musicals of all time. WICKED first premiered in Manila at the Cultural Center of the Philippines in 2014, opening to rave reviews. The show had a successful seven-week run, attracting sell--âout audiences.
The âgravityâdefying hitâ (Time Out London) and âBroadwayâs biggest blockbusterâ (The New York Times) has already enchanted 50 million theatregoers of all ages across the world, and won over 100 awards including 3 TonyÂ® Awards on Broadway, 2 Olivier Awards in London, 6 Helpmann Awards in Australia and a GrammyÂ® Award. Wicked has been hailed as âa phenomenon that keeps growingâ (Los Angeles Times) and âthe biggest thing in musicals since The Phantom of the Opera first openedâ (The Times, UK).
Set in a spectacular and colourful fantasy world of wizards, witches, magic and spells, Wicked tells the story of an unlikely but profound friendship between a popular blonde girl called Glinda and a misunderstood, green--âskinned girl named Elphaba. Filled with wonder and enchantments, this magical stage musical follows their extraordinary journey from sorcery students to becoming the iconic Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West from L. Frank Baumâs beloved tale âThe Wonderful Wizard of Ozâ.
WICKED is guaranteed to leave theatre--âgoers both young and old captivated with a story that tugs at the heartstrings, and a phenomenal musical score that features the hit songs âDefying Gravityâ, âPopularâ and âFor Goodâ amongst a host of memorable numbers.
