The Story

Would you believe the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good were once roommates? In Wicked, the reality of the relationship between Elphaba and Glinda (or Galinda, as the popular witch is originally dubbed) comes to light, as does the more sinister nature of the citizens of Oz. Behind the glitz, glamour and magic, there is a dark underbelly that the two friends must learn to navigate as they try to achieve their very different goals.
