Buy Wicked TicketsFrom its opening night on October 30, 2003, the musical Wicked has been taking theater audiences by storm. Expanding on the backstory of the witches of Oz (as in the Wizard of Oz), it features the musical talents of Stephen Schwartz and the Tony-wining talents of Wayne Cilento and director Joe Mantello. Wicked tickets sell out quickly in every venue where it features, drawing massive audiences eager to catch a piece of modern musical storytelling.

Serving as a sort of prequel to Frank L Baum's "The Wizard of Oz", Wicked seeks to explain the actions and motivations of Dorothy's arch-nemesis, Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West). Rather than being the cold, heartless witch she appeared to be to Dorothy and her companions, she was actually best friends with Glinda (known to Wizard of Oz fans as "The Good Witch"). The story of her childhood and the events of her life have contributed to the misunderstanding that surrounds her, and the misinterpretation of her actions and intent.

With The Wizard of Oz being such a beloved story in writing, on stage and on the screen, it's no wonder there was such an interest in developing the story even further. Written by award winning writer Winnie Holzman, who wrote for notable television shows such as My So-Called Life and thirtysomething, Wicked explores the friendship and the subsequent rift between Elphaba and Glinda, and the hardships and unfairness that greeted Elphaba at seemingly every turn. The events of her life contributed to the woman she later became the woman who would later meet Dorothy and her traveling companions as they journeyed down the Yellow Brick Road in search of the Wizard of Oz. Wicked tickets are more than just a night at a show, they're a passport into the background of a character everyone has loved to hate.

Since its start, Wicked has met with both critical and popular acclaim, and has broken numerous box office records. In December of 2006, it achieved the highest gross in Broadway's history with a weekly take in excess of $1.8 million, breaking the record number of Wicked tickets previously set only the month before. It has also reached record sales in London's West End, Chicago and Toronto, breaking the records it had previously set in each.

Wicked tickets represent an opportunity to introduce the entire family to the delights of attending a musical. With most children already knowing and loving the story of the Wizard of Oz, they'll be sure to enjoy learning more about its characters, and may even learn valuable lessons in how events can contribute to a person's behavior and actions. Of course, a rousing score and spectacular performances by some of Broadway's most celebrated stars contribute to the appeal, making Wicked a sure winner.
