The Broward Center for the Performing Arts in Fort lauderdale plays host to Wicked, the Untold Story of the Witches of Oz, from February 14 through March 4, 2018.
When Dorothy Gale first came to the land of Oz, Glinda the Good, asked her, “Are you a good witch, or a bad witch?” The same can be said of Elphaba — the so called Wicked Witch of the West. This ground breaking musical based on the books by both Frank L. Baum and Gregory Maguire is set in the wonderful world of Oz before the tornado brought a little girl and her dog on their journey down the yellow brick road. Who is Elphaba and why is she so desperately after those jewelled shoes? Find out in Wicked, the musical that blurs the lines between good and bad.
The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.

Ft Lauderdale Press Reviews
“While the supporting cast are all excellent — seriously, they are — it is that friendship between two girls that centers the story and makes the fun-pun score by Stephen Schwartz zing.”
– Rod Stafford Hagwood of Sun Sentinel
“If you haven’t seen “Wicked” yet, this is your chance to see a first class production of it. If you have seen it, this production will not disappoint, but will have you leaving the theater humming the songs with a smile on your face and a little bit of green in your heart.”
– Jack Gardner of Edge Ft. Lauderdale
