There’s a strange wind in the air which can only mean one thing.. Wicked is coming back to Albuquerque! The first time around, Wicked broke box office records and sold out before you could say, “Sweet Oz!” Don’t miss your chance when the witches return to the Popejoy Hall in September.
The citizens of Oz rejoice as news of the demise of the Wicked Witch of the West from a bucket of water spreads throughout the land. But as Glinda enters the stage in her signature magic bubble, she reminds them that nothing in Oz is really as it seems and begs the question, “Are people born Wicked? Or is Wicked-ness thrust upon them?” This is the message she leaves as she recounts the story of a strange, headstrong green girl named Elphaba who taught her the true meaning of friendship and how they changed each others lives for good.
See Wicked at the Popejoy Hall in Albuquerque from September 17 through October 5, 2014. Performances will be at 7:30pm on Tuesdays through Thursdays, at 8:00pm on Fridays and Saturdays, and at 6:30pm on Sundays.
Afternoon matinees are scduled at 2:00pm on September 18, 20, 27, and October 4; and at 1:00pm on SUndays.

“I won’t apply the label of “perfect” because there are minor issues here and there, qualifying as quibbles. This Celebrity Attractions presentation of “Wicked” is a fantastic production of the Broadway blockbuster for all ages.” – Michael Smith of Tulsa World
“And for kids who aren’t looking for a stroll down memory lane, they will get the chance to adjust their memories. Perhaps when they recall the story of the Wizard of Oz, they will not only remember Dorothy but also Glinda, Elphaba and their fellow Ozians.” – Ali Littman of Rio Rancho Observer
“Wicked may be bright and sparkly and big on delivering a high moral message, but it’s also subversive, hilarious and crisp as a freshly minted dollar bill, all the way from the lights to the unbelievably executed, nearly operatic vocal work.” – Christie Chisholm of alibi.com
