“We are thrilled to present once again Broadway’s greatest hit WICKED as we bring the Emerald City back to the Dallas Summer Musicals stage at the Music Hall at Fair Park. An enthralling musical, WICKED delivers splendid performances and a luscious visual production for a truly unforgettable experience. Our 5th engagement of this spectacle will be one to remember” said Michael A. Jenkins, DSM President and Managing Director.
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 WICKED one of the world’s most popular musicals.
WICKED has been declared “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety and “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly. WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 13 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, and Mexico) and has thus far been translated into five languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, and Korean.
