After its previous sold-out engagements in Minneapolis, Wicked is back by popular demand this fall as a Season Special of the 2016-2017 season of Broadway Across America in Minneapolis. Wicked has a five-week engagement at the Orpheum Theatre from April 12, 2017 to May 14, 2017.
Wicked, the cultural phenomenon that has been taking the Great White Way by storm, is a visually stunning musical that re-imagines The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the widely-loved classic tale from L. Frank Baum. This top-grossing Broadway musical tells the untold tales of The Wicked Witch of the West and of Glinda the Good – two of the most unforgettable characters in the Land of Oz. Wicked features fabulous sets and costumes, captivating plot, and breathtaking stagecraft.

“With every passing experience — and this is my fifth in the decade-long life of the show on Broadway and the road — it becomes more evident that this prequel to “The Wizard of Oz” has significant flaws. These notably include a draggy book and an inconsistent score featuring undeniable earworms like “Popular” and “What Is This Feeling?” but also forgettable tunes like … well… most of the ones in the second act.” – Dominic P. Popatola of TwinCities.com
“For a die hard critic like myself, reviewing a show like Wicked is just plain hard. It is a rare moment when I’m so genuinely entertained by a show that I don’t take the time to pick at every flaw. Wicked is one of those kinds of shows. It’s familiar, yet fresh and purely entertaining while still being truly profound.” – Michelle Alimoradi of examiner.com
“While Joe Mantello’s production is competent and fun — there is a lot of wit and joy to be had at “Wicked” — Thursday’s opening night performance at the Orpheum Theatre was not as fully electric as in engagements past.” – Rohan Preston of StarTribune
