“The Wizard of Oz” is often cited as one of the greatest films of all time. And though we tend to poopoo any talk of prequels and sequels to treasured classics, there’s no denying everyone’s excitement for “Wicked.” The two-part film debuts its first half later this year and is expected to have the potential of being a major blockbuster.

All news where Wicked is mentioned

‘Wicked’ just shook up its Broadway cast. We found tickets.
“Wicked” is very “popular.”Now, the fifth longest-running Broadway show behind “The Phantom of the Opera,” “Chicago,” “The Lion King” and about to surpass “Cats” for fourth place, the “Wizard of Oz”-based musical has remained a fixture on the Great White Way since it opened way back in October 2003.Amazingly, in its 20th year at the Gershwin Theatre, the tourist destination is still going strong.And even though it’s a well-oiled machine, there are still a few new pieces to this well-established theatrical juggernaut.Starting March 7, Alyssa Fox assumed the lead role of Elphaba, Tony nominee John Dossett settled in as the Wizard, Kimber Elayne Sprawl took over as Nessarose and William Youmans became the new Doctor Dillamond.So, if you want to see the brand new Wicked Witch’s origin story live in person with a fresh ensemble, here’s everything you need to know.Like most Broadway shows, “Wicked,” has a standard eight show a week schedule running from Tuesday through Sunday.Matinees take place Wednesday and Saturday at 2 p.m.; Sunday matinees begin at 3 p.m.To find the show that makes the most sense for your calendar, we recommend reviewing the beloved, Tony Award-winning musical’s schedule here.The show runs 2 hours and 45 minutes.
