A gorgeous musical that brought tears to our eyes” (The Huffington Post), Wicked is one of the world’s 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--‐out audiences.

The “gravity‐defying hit” (Time Out London) and “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times) has already enchanted 50 million theatregoers of all ages across the world, and won over 100 awards including 3 Tony® Awards on Broadway, 2 Olivier Awards in London, 6 Helpmann Awards in Australia and a Grammy® Award. Wicked has been hailed as “a phenomenon that keeps growing” (Los Angeles Times) and “the biggest thing in musicals since The Phantom of the Opera first opened” (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--‐skinned 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 Baum’s beloved tale ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’.
