Revisit the enchanting Land of Oz when Wicked plays the Benedum Center as a season special of the 2013- 2014 PNC Broadway Across America – Pittsburgh. Wicked, the award-winning and record-breaking musical that presents the fascinating back story for the classic The Wizard of Oz, runs in Pittsburgh from January 15 to February 9, 2014.
Many years before a tornado dropped Dorothy Gale in the middle of Munchkinland, two college girls met and became friends. Elphaba, the green-skinned and smart girl, finds an unexpected friend in her beautiful and popular roommate Glinda. However, they soon find themselves on opposing sides as the reviled Wicked Witch of the West and as the much-admired Glinda the Good.
Catch the enchantingly breathtaking Wicked performances at the Benedum Center at 7:30 PM from Tuesdays through Thursdays, at 8 PM on Fridays, at 2 PM and 8 PM on Saturdays, and at 1 PM and 6:30 PM on Sundays.

“The avid theatergoers were charmed and occasionally blown away and I was admittedly less so, but I’d still see it again. It’s a big, bold theatrical spectacle that gives insight into beloved characters in the days before Dorothy landed in Oz.” – Sharon Eberson of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Overall, the national touring company returns with a strong cast backed by an energetic chorus. It’s a Broadway worthy production that’s worth your time and entertainment dollar.” – Marylynne Pitz of Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
“Audiences get a fresh look at the inside, sinister politics of the Emerald City and Munchkin land as they connect to and root for the crusading misfit Elphaba. It’s easy to see why “Wicked” is popular with teen females contending with the challenges of junior and senior high-school politics.” – Alice T. Carter of Trib Live
