What is currently on at Empire Theatre (V577)


So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One--born with emerald green skin--is smart, fiery, and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious, and very popular. How these two unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most spellbinding musical in years.
Book by Winnie Holtzman (based on Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West)
Music Stephen Schwartz
