Wicked, the highly acclaimed and multi-award winning Broadway musical, is back in Chicago by popular demand! Wicked celebrates its 10th anniversary as an off-season special of the 2013 season of Broadway in Chicago. Wicked opens at the Oriental Theatre on October 30, 2013 and will runs until December 31, 2013.
Wicked, the top-grossing and phenomenal musical that won 35 major awards, re-imagines the timeless tale of The Wizard of Oz, telling the story of the two young women (who later became Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West) that took place long before Dorothy arrived. Wicked has been hailed as a cultural phenomenon that forever changes how the world appreciates L. Frank Baum’s classic and well-loved tale.
Catch the enchanting performances of Wicked at the Oriental Theatre at 7:30 PM every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday and at 8 PM every Saturday. The special matinees are scheduled for 2 PM every Saturday and Sunday. Wicked runs for 165 minutes with 1 intermission.

“Give the producers credit – lots of credit in fact – for keeping the show fresh enough to pack in the audiences over the years. This is my fourth trip to see the Wizard (Elphaba and Glinda, et. al) and one of the most enjoyable since seeing the original Broadway cast ten years ago.” – John Olson of Chicago Theater Beat
“The recent minor improvements in Chicago’s most prominent theatrical attraction won’t suddenly seduce those who have always resisted the charms of this savvy, self-aware pop musical. But when you add the pleasures of Barbara Robertson — the fifth, and the best, Madam Morrible I’ve seen — to some spruced-up production values, this surely becomes a very good time to see “Wicked.” – Chris Jones of Chicago Tribune
