The smash Broadway musical is coming to the James M. Nederlander Theatre from September 28 through December 4, 2022, telling a unique tale of the Land of Oz: “Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one ‘good,’ and the other one ‘wicked,’” reads Broadway in Chicago.

Now, the show is coming to the big screen in a film adaptation starring Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo as Glinda and Elphaba, respectively.
