The  incredible  original  production,  which  is  coming  direct  from  a  multi  record-­‐breaking  tour  of  the  UK  and  Ireland,  flies  into  Manila   for  a  special  limited engagement  as  part  of  a  major  international  tour.

“A  gorgeous  musical  that  brought  tears  to  our  eyes”  (The  Huffington  Post),  Wicked  is  one  of  the  world’s  most  celebrated,   spectacular  and  successful  stage  musicals  of  all  time.       The  “gravity  defying  hit”  (Time  Out  London)  and  “Broadway’s  biggest  blockbuster”  (The  New  York  Times)  has  already  enchanted  50   million  theatregoers  of  all  ages  across  the  world,  and  won  over  100  awards  including  3  Tony®  Awards  on  Broadway,  2  Olivier  Awards   in  London,  6  Helpmann  Awards  in  Australia  and  a  Grammy®  Award.  Wicked  has  been  hailed  as  “a  phenomenon  that  keeps  growing”   (Los  Angeles  Times)  and  “the  biggest  thing  in  musicals  since  The  Phantom  of  the  Opera  first  opened”  (The  Times,  UK).

Set  in  a  spectacular  and  colourful  fantasy  world  of  wizards,  witches,  magic  and spells,  Wicked  tells  the  story  of  an  unlikely  but   profound  friendship  between  a popular  blonde  girl  called  Glinda  and  a  misunderstood,  green-­‐skinned  girl named  Elphaba.  Filled   with  wonder  and  enchantments,  this  magical  stage musical  follows  their  extraordinary  journey  from  sorcery  students  to  becoming   the  iconic  Glinda  The  Good  and  the  Wicked  Witch  of  the  West  from  L.  Frank Baum’s  beloved  tale  ‘The  Wonderful  Wizard  of  Oz’.
