Wicked Houston | Hobby Center

For a whole month in summer 2016, the Tony Award winning and breakthrough musical ‘Wicked’ flies down to Houston’s Hobby Center, running at the Sarofim Hall from July 6 to August 14, 2016.

Due to insistent public demand, ‘Wicked’ returns to Houston after previously breaking box office records in the city. The story of the Witches of Oz – the Good Witch of the North and the Wicked Witch of the West – makes for “the most complete – and completely satisfying – new musical in a long time,” as USA Today writes. With a well-conceived and well-penned story about longtime rivalries, knowing one’s true self and worth, and the battle between good and evil, brightened by eye-popping visuals which include fascinating animated creatures soaring or walking through the stage, colorful costumes, imaginative set designs and unique characters, and underscored by unforgettable and heartwarming melodies such as the hit song ‘Defying Gravity’, ‘Wicked’ is no wonder “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times) that has also emerged as “a cultural phenomenon” (Variety). You want to know what went down in Munchkinland long before Dorothy stepped in, then you have to see ‘Wicked’ to be visually and emotionally enchanted, captivated and enlightened, and to completely understand that there are indeed two sides to every story.

Show times for ‘Wicked’ are at 7:30 PM from Tuesdays to Thursdays and Sundays, and 8 PM on Fridays and Saturdays. Matinee performances are at 2 PM on Saturdays and Sundays. The performance running time is 2 hours and 45 minutes with 1 intermission.

Houston Press Reviews
“The alchemy that makes a hit musical is as weird and inexplicable as a witch’s spell – as the touring “Wicked” demonstrates yet again in the Broadway blockbuster’s fourth visit to Houston.”
– Everett Evans of Houston Chronicle

“The musical can’t make up its mind what it wants to be. Themes plod in and out while characters change motivation almost mid-scene. Is this a musical about the power of sisterhood? About being different? About being kind to animals? Or is it just the old Broadway plot of the odd girl finally getting the hunk? There’s no cohesive message; it’s about anything. The show drifts, using our fond memories of the movie to give it momentum and heft.”
– D.L. Groover of Houston Press
