13th June – 7th July
Leeds Grand Theatre| 46 New Briggate | Leeds, LS1 6NZ
It’s not easy being green …
Join us this Summer as Stephen Schwartz’s record-breaking musical extravaganza lights up the stage at the Grand Theatre, Leeds as part of a new nationwide tour.
Based on Gregory Maguire’s revisionist exploration of the land and characters from L. Frank Baum’s 1900 novel, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the foundation of one of the biggest cultural phenomena ever to grace the lively arts, Wicked presents the as yet untold tales of green-skinned misfit, Elphaba, and chronicles her early years, the beginnings of her relationship with Galinda, the girl who will ultimately become Oz’s Witch of the North, and the origin of her choice to seek sanctuary in her role of the Wicked Witch of the West, a long time before Dorothy Gale’s arrival in Oz.
Boasting a magical soundtrack, featuring songs including Popular, For Good, and Defying Gravity, Wicked promises to be the musical event of the year that will enthral audiences nationwide.
Remember – evil may be powerful, but wicked always wins!
