Plan a Fun Night in NYC with Wicked the Musical

When you're planning how to spend your nights in a city that has endless amounts of options, making a decision can be difficult because you don't want to miss out on anything.  If you decide to utilize one of your vacation nights watching Wicked the Musical, you will not be disappointed by the entertaining production.  Day after day Wicked captivates audiences; many of the people that see this show have seen it several times before.  However, the play is just so amazing and engrossing that people want to see Wicked over and over again.

Experience One of the Best Plays - Wicked

Bring your family and friends to enjoy one of the best shows Broadway has to offer.  Wicked the Musical will take you on a fun-filled and amusing journey during one of the most entertaining shows in New York City.  If you want to go to one of the best musicals around (and why would you want anything less?), then you should check out Wicked.

From the stupendous acting to the one-of-a-kind songs, you will be dreaming about coming back to see this show again even after you leave NYC.  Every part of this performance works together perfectly to make a truly unique Broadway play.

A New Twist on a Classic Story - Wicked

Don't sit out your opportunity to see a wonderful Broadway production during your trip to New York City.  Rather, you should take advantage of the offbeat musical, Wicked.  This fun story will engage people of all ages (even those rare people who don't know the story of the Wizard of Oz).  You will get an inside look at the witches of Oz and be taken on a fun and enchanting story full of catchy songs and lively choreography.

Phenomenal Broadway Show - Wicked

Wicked the Musical is a wonderful adaptation of the book!  The story itself is enough to keep you entertained for a few hours.  The actors do an incredible job bringing the quirky story to life.  The singing from the main actors is superb, though the minor actors could have had better voices.  You'll be singing these songs for the rest of your trip.  Although the tickets are a bit expensive, the show is absolutely worth the price.

Price Range:

Features: Adapted from the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked the Musical tells the heretofore untold story of Elphaba, better known as the Wicked Witch of the West, and her best friend Glinda the Good Witch. This massively popular Broadway production, which was first performed in October 2003, features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a script by Winnie Holzman.

Why We Go: A Broadway and pop-culture phenomenon, Wicked the Musical has been performed nearly 3,000 times in its seven years of production and is sure to achieve classic status. Touching and funny but never maudlin or campy, Wicked Broadway features a stellar cast and unsurpassed production values. The "Defying Gravity" number, in particular, must be seen to be believed.

  • Critical Acclaim: Critics have been quick to praise Wicked the Musical. Of its October 2003 debut, Time Magazine's Richard Zoglin said, "If every musical had a brain, a heart and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place." Elysa Gardner of USA Today agreed, calling it "the most complete, and completely satisfying, new musical I've come across in a long time."
  • Awards: Since 2003, when it first opened, Wicked Broadway has been nominated for ten Tonys (it won three) and countless other prestigious awards, including Laurence Olivier and Drama Desk Awards.
  • Kid Friendly: One of the best things about the Wicked Broadway Musical is that it appeals to both children and adults. Only very small children, those under eight years of age, will be frightened or bored by what's happening on stage.

Inside Knowledge: Devices for the hard-of-hearing are available free of charge in the Gershwin Theatre lobby. German, French, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish translation devices are also available.

Do's and Don'ts:

  • Do Bring the Kids: Kids 8 and up will enjoy the humor and enchanting special effects of Wicked the Musical just as much as adults. Note that children under 4 will not be admitted to the theater.
  • Do Grab Fall Tickets: Because Wicked Broadway is so popular, it is often difficult to get ahold of tickets. We recommend trying weeknights in September and October. Alternatively, you might try participating in the Gershwin Theatre lottery, which offers fans the chance to win $26 front-row seats.
  • Don't Overpay: Discounted seats are available for those who want desperately to see Wicked Broadway but can't afford the general admission prices. These partial-view Side Orchestra seats provide views of the main action but not the action at the back or side of the stage.
  • Don't Miss the Concession Stand: Enhance the Wicked Broadway experience with a cold drink and T-shirt. Soft drinks, water, cocktails, candy, and merchandise are available in the Gershwin Theatre lobby.
