Why Wicked is so popular
Those looking for a great musical experience can consider going to the production of Wicked at the Gershwin Theatre. Currently, in the middle of its three-month transfer to the venue, Wicked New York is one of the highest-grossing Broadway shows in history.
The production premiered on the Broadway stage in October 2003. Running successfully for almost 17 years, the musical has become one of the longest-running stage productions to ever come out of Broadway. When you reach the theatre, be prepared to face a host of emotions, ranging from sadness to glee and much more.
The impressive music along with stunning visuals are sure to impress people of all ages. It is one of the rare musicals that is apt for the whole family. Every actor in the play is brilliant, making sure that audiences believe the characters’ emotions. Moreover, the theatrical and onstage effects are crucial to the success of the production.
Without the presence of an engaging story, musicals often end up boring audience members. Fortunately, Wicked New York possesses a strong plotline. The musical mainly focus on the prequel story to the Wizard of Oz. It is a tale of two witches, who are completely different from one another.
Elphaba is the Wicked Witch of the West, while Glinda is the Good Witch of the North. Based on the magnificent writings of Gregory Maguire in his 1995 novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West”, the musical is suitable for Wizard of Oz fans. During the musical, audiences come to understand how these two different witches can maintain an unlikely friendship with each other.
