“Wicked,” the blockbuster musical whose initial Chicago run grossed more than $200 million, breaking box office records, will return to Chicago next fall, Broadway in Chicago announced.
Based on Gregory Maguire’s prequel to L. Frank Baum’s “The Wizard of Oz,” the Tony Award-winning tuner by composer/lyricist Stephen Schwartz and book writer Winnie Holzman chronicles the friendship of onetime school chums Elphaba and Glinda, who became wicked and good witches made famous by Baum’s classic tale.
The musical’s first, sit-down Chicago run concluded in 2009 after 3½ years and more than 1,500 performances.
This latest North American tour will run Sept. 28 through Dec. 4, 2022, at the James M. Nederlander Theatre, 24 W. Randolph St., Chicago.
