Wicked is… wicked!

Think you know everything there is to know about the Wizard of Oz and the Wicked Witch of the West? Think again.

The Broadway musical Wicked has blown into the city and what a spectacular brew it has created. Wicked tells the backstory of the Wicked Witch of the West and poses the question; are people born evil or are they victims of circumstance? Your answer might change after watching this incredible musical that blends beautiful costumes catchy music and splendid acting and intricate details.

Catch the show as you follow along with the "wicked witch" Elphaba and the "white witch" Glinda and learn all of the dirty little secrets of the yellow brick road. With other colourful characters along the way the audience is treated to a mischeviously delightful time. Audiences will be able to piece together pieces of the original Wizard of Oz while learning why the Tin Man doesn’t have a heart and why the lion is so scared. And don’t forget about the Scarecrow…

Wicked also spurs some laughs and the show is coming hot off the news that its now the highest-grossing broadway musical in Canada — ever!

Wicked runs until July 17 at the Jubilee Auditorium.
