WICKED to return to Segerstrom Center for the Arts

WICKED, Costa Mesa’s most popular musical, will return to Segerstrom Hall at Segerstrom Center for the Arts on February 9 through March 6. This will be the first area engagement of WICKED in three years.

The Broadway sensation WICKED looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is 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.”

With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade,” and by Time Magazine as “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart and courage.” NBC Nightly News calls the hit musical “the most successful Broadway show ever.”

Now the fifth longest-running show in Broadway history, WICKED is the winner of more than 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Since opening in 2003, WICKED has been performed in more than 100 cities in 16 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese. WICKED has been seen by more than 60 million people worldwide and has amassed more than $5 billion in global sales. 

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento.
