#WickedWednesday: Wicked Set to Thrillify Manila Audiences Once More!

WICKED, the Broadway and West End musical phenomenon, acclaimed as “one of the greatest musicals of our time” (Daily Mail, UK) is finally flying back into Manila this February 2017. The incredible original production, which is coming direct from a multi record-breaking tour of the UK and Ireland, will be playing at The Theatre at Solaire for a special limited engagement as part of a major international tour.

Tickets are now on public sale and are available at ticketworld.com.ph and all TicketWorld outlets.

“A truly magical night full of imagination and emotional that is not to be missed” (Whatsonstage.,com, UK), Wicked is one of the world’s most celebrated, spectacular and successful stage musicals of all time. Wicked first premiered in Manila in 2014, opening to rave reviews. The show had a successful seven-week run, attracting sell-out audiences.

Acclaimed as “a wicked and wonderful vision of Oz” (Londong Evening Standar), “a magical story of friendship, love and growing up” (OfficialLondonTheater.com) and “pure magic” (Time Out London), Wicked is one of the world’s most celebrated, spectacular and successful stage musicals of all time.

The show is playing its 13th year on Broadway to packed houses, while at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London’s West End, Wicked celebrated its 10th anniversary last September. Around the world, Wicked has been seen by over 50 million people in 14 countries, and is the recipient of more than 100 major awards, including 3 Tony® awards and 6 Drama Desk Awards on Broadway, 2 Olivier Awards and 9 WhatsOnStage Awards in London, 6 Helpmann Awards in Australia and a Grammy® Award.

Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students – a popular blonde girl called Glinda and a misunderstood, green-skinned girl named Elphaba. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfill their destinies as Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked features music and lyrics by multi Grammy® and Academy® Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell; Disney’s Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame), and is based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman. Musical staging is by Tony® Award-winner Wayne Cilento and the production is directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Joe Mantello.

Wicked is produced around the world by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, John B. Platt and David Stone;  Executive Producer (UK/International Tour) Michael McCabe. The Manila engagement is presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Concertus Manila.
