Pittsburgh get ready, for a spell has been put on you. Thanks to The Pittsburgh Cultural Trust WICKED, the Broadway sensation, has come to town Wed, Jan 24 – Sun, Feb 11, 2018 at the Benedum Center. We all know the story of The Wizard of Oz, this tale looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.
Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story that USA Today cheers is “a complete triumph! An original musical that will make you laugh, cry, and think.”
Tickets for WICKED at the Benedum Center are available at these Pittsburgh Cultural Trust official ticket sources: www.TrustArts.org, by calling 412-456-4800 or in person at Theater Square Box Office, 655 Penn Avenue.
