Wednesday To-Do: 'Wicked'

Posted By on Wed, Nov 3, 2010 at 9:00 AM


7:30 p.m., Robinson Center Music Hall. $32-$137.

The New York Times called it "the defining musical of the decade." It's broken box office records in cities across the country, including Chicago, Los Angeles and Boston. And it's easily the biggest national production to come to Little Rock in recent memory. Beginning Wednesday night, you've got more than a dozen opportunities to see "Wicked," the Tony Award-winning musical adaptation of Gregory Maguire's book of the same name. The plot, which begins long before Dorothy, focuses on how green-skinned, misunderstood Elphaba Thropp and beautiful, popular Galinda Upland meet, become friends and eventually become The Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch, respectively. Two-time Tony Award winner Joe Mantello directs the 16 performances that the cast will stage Nov. 3 to 14. Discounts are available for groups of 20 or more by calling Celebrity Attractions at 501-492-3314.
