Las Vegas gets “Wicked”

It’s the story of the good witch and the, well, the misunderstood witch. Those around the country that have been lucky enough to see the show know that Wicked is the story of two witches that began as good friends, but slowly drifted apart. Now, hitting just about every other major urban city except for Sin City, the show is finally coming to Las Vegas!

The show, which is appropriate for ages 8 and up, is drawing in crowds of both adults and kids, and school tours are lining up out the door. Those who get in the door will be able to see an extremely talented touring cast which includes: Jackie Burns (Elphaba), Chandra Lee Schwartz (Glinda), Randy Danson (Madame Morrible), and Mark Jacoby (The Wizard). And those cast members are just as excited as audience members about the show.

“When the cast walked in for the first day, we couldn’t believe our eyes at how gorgeous this theater is, and how wonderful it is to play this city for the first time,” said Chandra Lee Schwartz. “It’s exciting, because the audience is really excited about it. They haven’t seen it like three or four years ago like our other cities have, so there is a special anticipation in the air.”

The show is based on the 1995 book by Gregory Maguire, and it’s been playing at the Smith Center since August 29. Being booked for a six-week run, it will play eight shows per week and will wrap up on October 7.

Wicked has been the best-selling Broadway hit for the past six years in a row, and audiences at The Smith Center have responded in the very same fashion. Grab Tonto and the Tin Man, you need to get your tickets to Wicked Las Vegas today!
