Wicked Hartford Background
Wicked is an award-winning musical based on the book "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West," by Gregory Maguire. The original Broadway cast featured Idina Menzel as Elphaba and Kristin Chenoweth as Glinda, and these two major stars helped propel Wicked into the entertainment spotlight. Stephen Schwartz wrote the music and lyrics for the musical, while Winnie Holzman wrote the book. The premiere of Wicked took place at the Curran Theatre in San Francisco, where it immediately left a lasting impact on audiences. Not long afterward, the musical moved to Broadway, where it premiered at the Gershwin Theatre. Right away, Wicked became one of the most talked about Broadway musicals in recent years. The production became a smash success, dominating the box office and garnering one major award after another. Wicked was nominated for numerous Tony Awards in 2004, and the production took home Best Actress in a Musical for Idina Menzel, Best Costume Design and Best Scenic Design.
