Wicked Schenectady | Proctors Theatre

It’s Oz as you’ve never seen it before! What happened before Dorothy Gale of Kansas literally dropped in to Munchkin Land? Find out as Wicked comes to Shenectady, Mainstage at the Proctors from March 1 through 12, 2017.

The curtain rises to the proud proclamation that “The Wicked Witch is dead!” But, as Glinda the Good soon points out, “Are people born wicked, or is wickedness thrust upon them?” Elphaba, the green girl who would come to be known as the evil Wicked Witch of the West wasn’t always bad. She began as a girl who just wanted to meet the Wizard of Oz, but nothing is as it seems in the land of Oz as she very quickly finds out. Lyricist and Composer of Wicked, Stephen Schwartz says that there are two sides to every story. This one is about the friendship between Elphie and Glinda and how they became two of the most powerful witches of Oz.

The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.

“Unfortunately Steven Schwartz’s songs, for the most part, just aren’t as thrilling as the rest of the show.
Even the hit, “Defying Gravity,” just doesn’t feel like it will have the staying power of big Broadway classics – although literally millions of ticket buyers would argue that point.” – Michael Eck of Times Union

“Along the way, they tell a story so fraught with insight about bullying, scapegoats, appreciating differences, standing up for what is right, and believing in yourself (even if the grown-ups around you don’t) that I felt the urge to get tickets for every middle-school or high-school age kid I know. If you’ve got one of those kids, take them. And then plan a little time afterwards to talk about it all while it’s still fresh.” – Katie Beltramo of Kids Out and About

“But the back-story of the characters is deeper than mere actions can explain. There are important themes of diversity and tolerance and friendship and popularity and Gestapo-like mind control. And love: let’s not forget love.” – Judith White of Saratogian News
