The new musical Wicked premiered on Broadway in 2003 and tells the story of a green colored skinned woman named Elphaba and how she later becomes the Wicked Witch of Oz. Based on the 1995 novel, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, Wicked is told mostly through flashback with some rousing and memorable songs.

Wicked on Broadway Background

The music and lyrics are by Stephen Scwartz and the book is by Winnie Holzman. It chronicles Elphaba, a kind-hearted and magically talented young woman with green skin, happened to become known as the Wicked Witch of the West.

The tale begins with her days at Shiz University, where she became rivals and then friends with Glinda the Good. When she realizes that the Wizard of Oz is actually a cause of evil, robbing the animals of their ability to speak, this promising student soon becomes the leader of the opposition to the Wizard of Oz. Eventually, it becomes clear how this underbelly to the famous Wizard of Oz story forms the backdrop for Dorothy’s journey that we all know so well.

Long before Dorothy joins the fray, the Land of Oz has two other girls, one with emerald-green skin and the other a beautiful blonde. These two unlikely friends go on to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch. This Broadway show makes for the most spellbinding new musical in years, adored by fans the world over.

What’s Wicked Like?

Wicked is a new take on the classic story of The Wizard of Oz, told from the perspective of the Wicked Witch of the West. Elphaba just happens to have green-colored skin but she wasn’t always wicked. This musical tells how she came to be considered the villain whom Dorothy would later encounter - but it is Elphaba’s story, not Dorothy’s. The show is aesthetically mindboggling, and the Tony-nominated score will leave you humming the songs for weeks to come. Consistently a favorite for theatregoers, this epic musical plays in the enormous Gershwin Theatre. The book by Winnie Holzman and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, this story has something for everyone with themes of love, politics and fall from grace, but especially strong are the themes of acceptance and redemption.

Is Wicked Good for Kids?

Wicked is very much a show intended for children, as its source material is the children’s favorite The Wizard of Oz. However, it may be inappropriate for children under the age of 8, as there are frightening elements to Wicked, such as flying monkeys and references to death and violence.
