Wicked opens this week at the Kentucky Center

It has been declared, “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly, has won 35 major awards (including a Grammy and three Tonys) and has broken box office records around the world.

As recently as last week, it achieved superstar status, having surpassed 1,000,000 fans on today’s benchmark for success, facebook.
 
The musical, which opened on Broadway in 2003 and immediately began playing to sold-out houses, spawned numerous national tours and instigated a major uptick in green makeup sales, is back in town.
 
Wicked, via songs such as, “Popular” and “What is this Feeling?” tells the tale of green-skinned Elphaba and her unlikely friend Glinda as they grow to become known as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch, the well-known characters from The Wizard of Oz
 
The musical is based on the 1995 novel of the same name by author Gregory Maguire.
 
Wicked, which is coming to Louisville for its third run, opens September 12 and plays through September 30 at the Kentucky Center as part of the PNC Broadway series
 
Tickets are still available and start at $32.75. They may be purchased online or by calling the Kentucky Center box office at 800-775-7777. The performance is recommended for patrons over the age of 10.
