Witches are flying in to Madison at the Overture Center for the Arts from May 22 to June 9, 2013 as Wicked, the Untold Story of the Witches of Oz comes to town.
Wicked tears away the curtain and shows you the other side of Oz. Why is the Cowardly Lion so cowardly? Who did the Tin Man lose his heart to? How did the Scarecrow end up in the middle of that cornfield to be found by a little girl and her dog as they walked down the yellow brick road. And who really was the Wicked Witch of the West? The musical Wicked, tells the story you never knew about Oz. It’s a tale of friendship between Elphaba, the green girl, infamously known as the Wicked Witch and Glinda the Good. In the land of Oz, nothing is just black and white – or green!

“Though it’s a riff on the classic outcast/queen bee clash, the early relationship between Elphaba and Glinda is genuinely funny and emotionally true to young adulthood. (Though everything is writ large in the world of a big-budget musical, one can feel the sensibility of My So-Called Life creator Winnie Holzman, who wrote Wicked’s book, at work.)” – Jennifer A.
