Broadway phenomenon Wicked is finally coming to Manila! Debuting in the Cultural Center of the Philippines on January 22, 2014, the wildly popular musical is set to take the Philippines by storm.
While we all know and love the story of the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, so much more happened before Dorothy stepped into the picture. Wicked is a beautiful story of friendship, love, and courage. It follows the unlikely bond of two very different girls. One is born with emerald skin and is judged and misunderstood, while the other is a vivacious and popular blonde lass. As time passes, one becomes Glinda the Good Witch while the other becomes known as the Wicked Witch of the West.
Turning 10 years old in October 2013, Wicked has been seen by over seven million people at the Gershwin Theater in its homebase in New York. Since its opening in 2003, Wicked has repeatedly broken box office records, regularly grossing in excess of US$1.8 million a week.
Gracing the Manila scene are world-class Australian performers Jemma Rix (Elphaba) and Suzie Mathers (Glinda).
"It is a privilege to present Wicked in Manila," said producer James Cundall, CEO of Lunchbox Theatrical Productions. Lunchbox Theaterical Productions is also responsible for bringing in other major productions such as Cats, The Phantom of the Opera, and Mamma Mia!
