Based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman’s WICKED imagines a beguiling backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’ and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely university friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
This award-winning production flies back to Dublin complete with all the spectacle and magic that make this “great blockbuster musical” (Irish Independent) such an unforgettable and unmissable experience.
