WICKED, the Broadway and West End musical phenomenon, acclaimed as “one of the greatest musicals of our time” (Daily Mail, UK) is back once again to cast its magical spell over Singapore audiences. The incredible original production first premiered in Singapore at Marina Bay Sands in 2011 and had performed in well over 100 cities in 14 countries around the world is coming direct from a multi record-breaking tour of the UK and Ireland, seen by over 1.5 million people in 16 cities, this production has been greeted with standing ovations and rave reviews wherever it has played.
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’.
Wicked has music and lyrics by multi Grammy and Academy Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell; Disney’s Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame) and is based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman.
