It's been staged in six languages, 14 countries, 100 plus cities and every time it's performed, it casts a spell on local viewers.

This is the magic of Wicked, a well-established and time-honored Broadway musical.

Do not hesitate, just buy it, as it is more than a normal musical, but a story of growth, love and friendship.
