The Music Hall at Fair Park in Dallas will have a four-week run of Wicked, one of Broadway’s recent phenomenal hits, on April 10 to May 5, 2013.
Wicked, the musical production that tells a story parallel to L. Frank Baum’s unforgettable story, The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, is told through the eyes of the infamous Wicked Witch of the West. Wicked also explores the relationship of the Wicked Witch of the West with the Good Witch of the North as they started off as roommates and friends while at the Shiz University. This revisionist take of Baum’s classic tale will make its Dallas audience appreciate and understand The Wizard of Oz in a very different light.
The enchanting Wicked performances from April 10, 2013 to May 5, 2013 at the Music Hall at Fair Park are at 8 PM nightly from Tuesday to Sunday. The special matinee shows are at 2 PM every Saturday and Sunday. The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.

“The spectacular staging, in which Wayne Cilento’s expressive dances and Kenneth Posner’s brilliant lighting bring Eugene Lee’s massive set to life, never fails to excite. Stephen Schwartz’s tunes show off remarkable variety and even subtlety within the pop-rock context, and his lyrics are among the wittiest, best-crafted in decades.” – Lawson Taitte of Dallas News
“But then there are those musicals that the second I hear the overture I melt like buttah into musical theater heaven as I allow the score, book, design, direction, singing, dancing, and acting cover me in a cloak of sheer pleasure and enjoyment. Stephen Schwartz’s Wicked is a prime example.” – John Garcia of The Column
“Like Glinda’s first-impression observation of Elphaba, the musical Wicked is “unusually and exceedingly peculiar and altogether quite impossible to describe,” but there’s no doubt that the audience thoroughly enjoyed Stephen Schwartz’s collection of beloved hairbrush-in-the-mirror hits which rolled out in succession with highlights being Roscioli’s electrifying “Defying Gravity” (powerfully belted out broom-in-hand while being dramatically hoisted into the air high above the stage floor) coupled with Gambatese’s highly amusing and bubble-gummy “Popular.” – Sherri Tilley of The Flash List
