Wicked, an amazing sensation on Broadway, follows a story set in the Land of Oz…but uses another narrative.
Long before Dorothy shows up, there was another young lady, birthed with an emerald green body, and possessing a great set of attributes. She will then run into an exceptionally popular bubbly blonde, while they had first been rivals to each other, however, they soon became friends. Everything seemed fine until the world decided to differentiate the “evil” one from the “good” one.
