Rejoicify! WICKED is back in town at the Hollywood Pantages Theatre and we are celebrating by giving away TWO tickets to the show on Thursday, December 6 at 8 p.m.!
The Broadway sensation WICKED 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, who is 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.”
With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade,” and by Time Magazine as “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage.”
Winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards, WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean, and Portuguese. WICKED has amassed over $4.6 billion in global sales and has been seen by over 55 million people worldwide.
Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento. WICKED is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
Built in 1930, the Hollywood Pantages Theatre entertains thousands of guests each night. With its original design as a Vaudeville house that was transformed into a grand movie theater, the Hollywood Pantages has been home to numerous movies and award shows, including the Oscars. After 1977, the Nederland Organization took over the historic building and reopened in the early 2000s. From shows like Disney’s THE LION KING and WICKED to the newest smash hit HAMILTON, the Hollywood Pantages remains the centerpiece for the arts in the greater Los Angeles area.
