So much happened before Dorothy dropped in! Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. Stephen Schwartz's Wicked tells the story of those two girls; One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery, and misunderstood; and the other, beautiful, ambitious, and very popular. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, this spellbinding musical takes a look at how these unlikely friends end up as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch.
