So much happened before Dorothy dropped in. Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another girl, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships… until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”
The Gershwin Theatre on 50th Street and Broadway is that magical place. From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, Wicked—the untold true story of the Witches of Oz—transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story. It will send your spirits soaring to heights you’ll never forget.
Here is why we at Broadway Inbound think it's a perfect show for groups:
Wicked is an insightful exploration of friendship, envy, and self-acceptance, captivating and inspiring countless viewers since its debut in 2003. The musical delivers an ideal blend of spellbinding songs and an emotionally engaging story.
Regardless of whether you're a Broadway admirer, adore the original Wizard of Oz book, or are simply in the mood for an entertaining evening, Wicked is a must-see production.
The story is captivating, the music is beautiful, and the sets and costumes are incredible. So round up your friends and head out to see Wicked on Broadway! Your group will definitely have lots of meaningful discussions after the show and certainly will have several new favorites to turn up to the max in the car and sing your hearts out.
The story follows the unlikely friendship of two young women, Elphaba and Glinda, who grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the South, respectively. As they struggle to reconcile their differing views on life, they must ultimately decide which side they are on in the battle between good and evil. The musical has been incredibly successful, running now for nearly two decades on Broadway and winning multiple Tony Awards®.
The creative force behind the production boasts some of the most prominent figures in the theatre world. Renowned American composer Stephen Schwartz has lent his talents to numerous animated and theatrical fan favorites, but Wicked undoubtedly stands as his masterwork. The show invites you to rethink your perception of the Wicked Witch of the West. As a standard Broadway classic, Wicked has consistently drawn acclaim from both critics and audiences since its premiere.
Wicked is a tale of two distinct young ladies who, although seemingly complete opposites, forge an unlikely connection.

In spite of numerous obstacles, the protagonists maintain their closeness until their bond is finally severed, compelling them to walk down two very different paths. Wicked reminds us of the importance of remembering that human connection is powerful to lead us through our dark times. It’s a genuinely moving story that will speak to many and is loved by groups of all ages.
