Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One - born with emerald green skin - is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. When Wicked first played at the Kennedy Center in 2005, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 26 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards®, Wicked, the untold story of the witches of Oz, features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, and is based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire. With musical staging by Tony Award® winner Wayne Cilento, Wicked is directed by Tony Award® winner Joe Mantello.
