Popular Broadway Hit Wicked Comes to San Antonio for Three-Week Stop at Majestic Theatre

It ain’t easy being green – that’s the gimmick, in a sense, behind the blockbuster musical re-telling of The Wizard of Oz, one that refracts L. Frank Baum’s world through the sensibility of the green among us.

Adapted from Gregory Maguire’s novel, Wicked features a tuneful – and dare I say pop-u-u-lar? – score by Stephen Schwartz, and gives us the fraught backstory between two young witches: Elphaba (talented, socially-awkward, green) and Galinda (charismatic, fashionable, non-green). Their unusual, frenemy relationship sets up the world of Oz in surprising and occasionally touching ways, and helps account for the show’s impressive longevity in New York: 15 years now on Broadway, and with a movie (apparently) still in the works.



In San Antonio, Wicked boasts an unusually long stop – three weeks, and stars Mary Kate Morrisey and Ginna Claire Mason. Grab a ticket and make your friends green with envy.

$53.50-$353, 7:30pm Wed Sept 26, 2pm & 7:30pm Thu Sept 27, 8pm Fri Sept 28, 2pm & 8pm Sat Sept 29, 2pm & 7:30pm Sun Sept 30, 7:30pm Tue Oct 2 (through Oct. 14), The Majestic Theatre, 224 E. Houston St., (210) 226-3333, majesticempire.com.
