Celebrate your independence with Wicked. Best Availability July 4th

Back by “popular” demand. Variety calls Wicked “a cultural phenomenon,” and every time it plays Denver it breaks box office records. Winner of more than 100 international awards, including a Grammy and three Tonys, Wicked is “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times). Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz. One — born with emerald green skin — is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete — and completely satisfying — musical in a long time" (USA Today).
