Wicked Edmonton Tickets
After breaking box office records in the US, the UK and Ireland, Wicked is back in Edmonton by popular demand and will open for a limited run at Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium. Reviewed as “a cultural phenomenon” by Variety, Wicked is a blockbuster musical by Grammy Award winning composer Edward Schwartz. Set in the Land of Oz, theatre goers can get Wicked Edmonton tickets to watch this stunning production. The musical is about the less talked about witches of the Wizard of Oz and is based on Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a novel by George Maguire. The musical had its Broadway premiere at the Gershwin Theatre in 2003. It was nominated for ten Tony Awards out of which it won three.
The blockbuster Broadway musical Wicked is the story of two witches, Elphaba and Glinda. From their meeting as the roommates to becoming close friends towards the middle of the first act, Wizard is all about their remarkable odyssey as Glinda the Good Witch of the North and Elphaba the Wicked Witch of the West. The musical attempts to tell the untold story of the witches of Oz and is based on the George Maguire’s novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.
The hauntingly beautiful music that’s heavily thematic is given by Edward Schwartz, three-time Grammy Award winning composer who gave us Pippin and Godspell. The book of the musical is given by Emmy Award winner Winnie Holzman.
The musical opened for pre-Broadway in June 2003 for a three week run at the Curran Theatre. After various alterations, the original Wayne Cilento choreographed version of the Wicked opened for Broadway run at the Gershwin Theatre in October 2003. The first national tour of the musical started in 2005 in Toronto and has since then been played at a number of cities throughout the US and Canada. The second US tour of Wicked opened in Fort Myers at the Barbara B. Mann Performing Arts Hall in 2009.
Wicked is touring again in 2014 and will open at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium for a limited Broadway run in Edmonton. Fans can watch the emerald- green skinned Elphaba and beautiful Glinda in the Land of Oz by getting the Wicked Edmonton tickets in advance.
