Wicked Richmond | Landmark Theatre

Wicked Witch of the West flies back to Richmond in the spring for Broadway in Richmond’s highly anticipated 2013/14 season. Wicked, one of the biggest blockbusters to grace the Great White Way, will be at the Landmark Theater for two weeks from April 23 to May 4, 2014.

Based in Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel, Wicked offers an interesting perspective into L. Frank Baum’s timeless Wizard of Oz tale. Told from the point of views of the witches of Oz, the story of Wicked begins years before Dorothy arrived in the enchanted land. In Wicked, meet Elphaba and Galinda – two college roommates and friends whose opposing personalities eventually lead them to different destinies. Elphaba became the ostracized Wicked Witch of the West while Galinda became the much-admired Glinda the Good.

Discover the Land of Oz that you never knew and experience the stunning and high-flying Wicked shows at the Landmark Theater on April 23 to May 4.

“Wicked” is a strange play to review, because in many ways a review is beside the point. Every reviewer in town could call “Wicked” every mean name there was, and people would still flock to it. Because “Wicked” is that rare Broadway musical that taps a direct vein into the cultural blood stream and spawns not fans but disciples.” Richmond.com

“Concocted from more than a century’s-worth of Oz phantasms both theatrical and literary, “Wicked” draws from Baum’s books, the 1939 film and a 1995 novel by author Gregory Maguire to create a parallel retelling of the story we already know — or think we know.” – Tony Farrell of Richmond Times Dispatch

“Overall the show’s sub-themes are perfectly PG – very little to make an uptight parent squeamish. In fact, a lot of the show asks us to think hard about popularity, being shut out of a peer group, and how character and morals develop even while living in a politically correct bubble. Galinda – with her elaborate puffy ego to match her frilly clothes –- eventually develops from a pouf ball who cherishes popularity, beauty and “projects” (that honor her self-absorbed values) to eventually wanting to do more with her life.” – Wendy Irvine of Richmond Family Magazine
