As the people of Oz celebrated the death of Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West), Glinda the Good tells them the story of Elphaba. Wicked is about what happened in the land of Oz but from the angle of the villain. A young woman (the Wicked Witch of the West) was born with Emerald green skin, smart, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent, meets a bubbly blonde woman (Glinda the good) who is exceptionally popular two became unlikely friends.
Wicked is a Broadway musical that tells the story of what happened way before Dorothy arrived in Oz from Kansas. It is the story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. The music and lyrics of Wicked were written by Stephen Schwartz, and the book, written by Winnie Holzman.
Wicked is based on the 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, written by Gregory Maguire, a retelling of the novel written by L. Frank Baum, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and the outstanding 1939 film ‘The Wizard of Oz, by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer.
The original production of Wicked premiered in October 2003 on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre. The musical has won several awards, including three Tony Awards, seven Drama Dex Awards, and a Grammy Award.
The storyline is an unusual one, and that’s what makes it unique. Wicked is about two unlikely friends, Elphaba and Galinda, whose names later change to the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch. It tells how they struggled through opposing personalities and rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the wizard’s corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba’s private fall from grace.
