Wicked Embarks on 2nd National Tour – Ticket Price Hikes in Major Cities

July 15, 2015

If audience appeal is any indication of a play’s worth then Wicked is definitely a multimillion-dollar treasure. After wrapping up an immensely successful North American tour, Wicked has hit the road with its second national run. To meet the huge demand, Wicked will be travelling all over the country with two separate teams – “The Munchkinland Tour” and “The Emerald City Tour”. Featuring different casts, these touring teams will be performing in many cities including Seattle, Portland, Milwaukee, Louisville and New York.

The Munchkinland Tour has Alyssa Fox reprising the role of Elphaba and Carrie St. Louis playing Glinda. The Emerald City Tour cast features Emma Hunton as Elphaba and Chandra Lee Schwartz as Glinda. Both the touring casts are equally talented and have been doing complete justice to their roles. Wicked is still the most popular musical running at the Gershwin Theatre in NY and its 7/12/15 weekly gross has witnessed an increase of $35,856 from last week. There is also a rise in the Wicked ticket price and according to ExciteEvents, the upcoming week (July 22 – 25) will see people buying tickets at top price. Price has gone up to $261 and the average ticket price is around $253.

Munchkinland Tour cast has been dazzling audience at the Seattle’s Paramount Theatre since July 8 and will wrap up its run on August 2. Due to its award winning cast which includes Alyssa Fox, Carrie St. Louis, John Davidson (The Wizard) and Ashley Parker Angel (Fiyero), the theatre has one of the highest priced tickets. The average ticket price has reached $344, even some of the low priced shows are averaging at $225.
