Wicked is the spellbinding Tony and Laurence Olivier Award- winning musical adapted from Gregory Maguire's novel of the same name. Wicked is a retelling of the events in L Frank Baum's Wizard of Oz but from the perspective of the supposedly "wicked" Witch of the West and the good witch, Glinda (formerly Garlinda!) As the story of Oz as we know it is flipped on it's head, bad becomes good and good becomes a repressive government regime. Wicked focuses on the early friendship between Elphaba (the Green witch) and Garlinda as they meet in sorcery university and how the pair are torn apart by love and conspiracy. Wicked is a bit like an American Hogwarts with a magical music score including the celebrated numbers "Popular" and "Defying Gravity."
