WICKED takes the Fox Theatre stage from June 16-July 11
Chris Peluso and Vicki Noon By Kristen Cornett
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED, winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony® Awards, is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. WICKED tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
Currently in its 7th year on Broadway, WICKED has been seen by nearly 23 million people worldwide. The New York Times called WICKED “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” and just a few months ago, the Times referred to WICKED as “the defining musical of the decade.” Since it began in March 2005, the national tour of WICKED has broken the house record in every single city in which it’s played, including St. Louis.
LOTTERY FOR $25 ORCHESTRA SEATS
A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held daily for WICKED. Each day, 2½ hours prior to show time people who present themselves at the Fox Theatre box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum and then thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only. This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person.
