Wicked Albuquerque Tickets
Wicked Albuquerque TicketsThe tale of the Wizard of Oz is a well-known family-friendly story about a girl from Kansas who ends up dropping her house on the Wicked Witch's sister. There are two sides to every story, however, so one author took it upon himself to tell the story of The Wicked Witch of the West before Dorothy dropped in on the people of Munchkinland. Gregory Maguire's novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West was released in 1995 and tells the tale of two young witches who would find an unlikely friendship blossoming between them despite their many differences. In 2003, the novel was adapted for the Broadway stage with a book by Winnie Holzman and music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz.
