Wicked Whisks Its Way to Detroit Opera House

A Different Take on Oz

Wicked takes you on a magical journey to the Land of Oz, but not as you know it. This tale unfolds long before Dorothy’s arrival, focusing on a young woman with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and extraordinarily talented. When she crosses paths with a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry transforms into an unlikely friendship… until the world labels one as “good,” and the other as “wicked.”

A Broadway Sensation

Featuring a thrilling score with hits like “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed as “the defining musical of the decade” by The New York Times and “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage” by Time Magazine. NBC Nightly News even calls it “the most successful Broadway show ever.”

A Global Phenomenon

Now the 4th longest-running show in Broadway history, Wicked is the winner of over 100 international awards, including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Since its opening in 2003, Wicked has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world, and has been seen by over 60 million people worldwide, amassing over $5 billion in global sales.

The Creative Minds Behind the Magic

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.
