UPCOMING: Wicked returns to the Detroit Opera House, August 8 - September 2, 2018

I have only seen Wicked one time, in London in 2009, so I'm very excited to see it again when it returns to Detroit this year!

Read below for all of the details.

About the show:
WICKED, Detroit’s most popular musical, will return to the Detroit Opera House, August 8 – September 2, 2018. Tickets for the return engagement start at $43 and are now available for purchase online at www.broadwayindetroit.com or www.ticketmaster.com, by phone at 800-982-2787 and at the Fisher Theatre and Detroit Opera House box offices.

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 Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento. WICKED is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.


Since opening in 2003, WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 15 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, China, Mexico, and Brazil) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean, and Portuguese. The musical has amassed nearly $4.5 billion in global sales and has been seen by nearly 55 million people worldwide.

Declared “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly and “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety, WICKED is the recipient of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards.


The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good has made WICKEDone of the world’s most popular musicals.
