WICKED, the Broadway and West End musical phenomenon that tells the incredible untold story of the Witches of Oz is set to cast its magical spell over Hong Kong audiences when it debuts on 8 December, 2016. Demand for the blockbuster musical, which has routinely played to sold-out audiences around the world, has been so overwhelming that the producers have decided to extend the run to 22 January, 2017 with no further extension possible.
Tickets for the newly added performances from 10 to 22 January are now available online at www.hkticketing.com, or by phone at 31-288-288. Tickets may also be purchased at all HK Ticketing or Tom Lee outlets in person.
Producer James Cundall urged Hong Kong audiences to grab their seats for one of the hottest musicals on the world stage, now coming to Hong Kong for the first time. “Wicked is an extraordinary musical – it is visually breathtaking, musically uplifting and has a powerful and poignant story at its heart. This is definitely a production not to be missed!”
The musical spectacular features an outstanding array of West End and UK actors who will lead the cast when the show opens in Hong Kong – including Jacqueline Hughes (Elphaba), Carly Anderson (Glinda), Bradley Jaden (Fiyero), Steven Pinder (The Wizard and Doctor Dillamond), Kim Ismay (Madame Morrible), Iddon Jones (Boq), Emily Shaw (Nessarose) and Jodie Steele (Standby for Elphaba).
Acclaimed as “a wicked and wonderful vision of Oz” (London Evening Standard), “a magical story of friendship, love and growing up” (OfficialLondonTheatre.com) and “pure magic” (Time Out London), Wicked is one of the world’s most celebrated, spectacular and successful stage musicals of all time.
The show is playing its 13th year on Broadway to packed houses, while at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London’s West End, Wicked celebrated its 10th anniversary last month. Around the world, Wicked has been seen by over 50 million people in 14 countries, and is the recipient of more than 100 major awards, including 3 Tony® Awards and 6 Drama Desk Awards on Broadway, 2 Olivier Awards and 9 WhatsOnStage Awards in London, 6 Helpmann Awards in Australia and a Grammy® Award.
Based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in ‘The Wonderful Wizard of Oz’, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students – a popular blonde girl called Glinda and a misunderstood, green-skinned girl named Elphaba. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
Wicked features music and lyrics by multi Grammy® and Academy® Award-winner Stephen Schwartz (Godspell; Disney’s Pocahontas and The Hunchback of Notre Dame), and is based on the novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire and adapted for the stage by Winnie Holzman. Musical staging is by Tony® Award-winner Wayne Cilento and the production is directed by two-time Tony® Award-winner Joe Mantello.
