Wicked Los Angeles Tickets
Wicked Los Angeles TicketsBased on the 1995 novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, Wicked draws inspiration from the classic world of L. Frank Baum to tell the story of the fraught relationship between the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch in the years leading up to the events of the 1939 film. A major staple of Broadway since 2003, Wicked is one of the most frequently staged musicals of all time. You can catch a live performance whenever it is staged in Los Angeles.
The Untold StoryThe stage version of Wicked is the creation of composer and lyricist Stephen Schwartz. Over his career, Schwartz has become a prolific film and stage composer and previously won the Best Original Song at the 1999 Academy Awards for The Prince of Egypt. He was drawn to the story of Wicked for the way it retold Baum’s famous story from a different perspective and with an all-new cast of characters. Screenwriter Winnie Holzman, who was previously best known as the creator of the TV series My So-Called Life, was hired to adapt the novel into a book for the musical. After extensive rewriting and rerecording, Wicked premiered at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre on June 10, 2003, and then later transferred to Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre in October of the same year. An instant sensation, Wicked would eventually become one of the highest-grossing musicals on Broadway, with more than $1.3 billion in revenue and attendance figures of almost 12 million. During award season, the Broadway production received three Tony Awards, including Best Actress in a Musical and Best Scenic Design and Best Costume Design, out of 10 total nominations. At the 2004 Grammy Awards, the cast recording won Best Musical Show Album.
