The Tony and Grammy Award winning musical ‘Wicked’ is setting the stage for a six-week run at the Boston Opera House from June 7 to July 23, 2017. The musical will play Boston as a season special inclusion of the city’s 2016-2017 Broadway lineup.
‘Wicked’ takes audiences many years back in Munchkinland, long before Dorothy came in the picture. Back then, the spotlight shone on two girls – the blonde and popular Glinda and the feisty, outspoken and emerald-skinned Elphaba. Their rivalry-fueled friendship is deeply rooted from their younger years; with Glinda’s popularity and innate charms bringing Elphaba’s striking differences against her to the surface, causing the latter to be a social outcast. And the opposite paths they took as they realized their destinies as the two witches of Oz is a testament to their unending rivalry, one that gives rise to “the most complete – and completely satisfying—new musical in a long time”, as USA Today puts it.
The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.

“For the past decade, with wit and heart and a boatload of gorgeous tunes, “Wicked’’ has celebrated the power of female friendship. While giving full weight to the complexity of the path girls have to navigate, the show has affirmed the importance of standing up to groupthink, otherwise known as peer pressure.” – Don Aucoin of The Boston Globe
“This is a story for anyone trying to find his or her way, especially the oddballs, the misfits, the powerless–and at one time or another who hasn’t felt like that? Is it any wonder women relate? Especially the less than conventionally pretty ones. The nerds. The losers. The outcast who have lost their voices, and the bossy ones who say what no one wants to hear, who challenge convention, daring to be exactly who they are.” – Joyce Kulhawik of Joyce’s Choices
