Speaking of Doctor Dillamond, did we mention that he also happens to be, well, a goat? Ironically, his wig is made up of yak hair, and it’s just one of about 120 wigs used in the story. There are also mind blowing animal masks that take hours to apply onto the actors’ faces, often till they go numb! All the girls will be in love with Glinda’s bubble dress, which has 20 different types of sequins and almost 100,000 sequins all in all! Not to be beaten, Elphaba’s Wicked Witch skirt takes the costume team three weeks to put together and she goes through four of them in the show! So come and be transported to a magical world at the Nederlander Theatre at Ford Center for the Performing Arts in Chicago!
There's always two sides to a story. We all know the tale of Dorothy in the Land of Oz and how she triumphed over the wicked witch of the west. But have you ever thought about what's on the other side? "Wicked", the musical show is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Which is also a retelling of the classic 1900 novel, “The Wonderful Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. Dorothy's wicked green arch rival, has her own tale tell — a tragic past going through incidents of bullying, discrimination, love, friendship, and betrayal. Find out the unlikely friendship between two teen witches as they find friendship and fight for their beliefs and identities. This is a wickedly brilliant musical production that brings together an astounding cast, pitch-perfect to those highly-spirited musical numbers. It’s no surprise that Wicked! collected ten Tony Award nominations and four Olivier Award nominations, making it a bona fide Broadway hit. Catch Wicked on its play date at the Nederlander Theatre at Ford Center for the Performing Arts in Chicago, Illinois on Thursday 1st December 2022. It must-watch and must-get tickets for this show.
