Congratulations To Wicked As They Became the 6th Longest Running Show On Broadway

The international blockbuster Wicked played its 6,138th Broadway performance last night, Thursday, July 12 at 8pm, surpassing A Chorus Line to become the 6th longest-running production in Broadway history.

Celebrating its 15th Anniversary on Broadway this fall, Wicked  has amassed over $4.5 billion in global sales, has been seen by over 55 million people worldwide and is the recipient of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards.

Since opening in 2003, Wicked  has been performed in over 100 cities in 15 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, China, Mexico, and Brazil) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean, and Portuguese.

In addition to the Broadway production, Wicked  in North America has enjoyed unprecedented record-breaking sit-down engagements in Chicago, where it ran for nearly four years; Los Angeles, where it ran for two years; and San Francisco, where it ran for nearly two years, as well as two North American Tours.

The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two young women in the Land of Oz, Wicked  tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in.  Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.  The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good has made WICKED one of the world’s most popular musicals.

The musical currently stars Jackie Burns as Elphaba, Amanda Jane Cooper as Glinda, Isabel Keating as Madame Morrible, Kevin Chamberlin as The Wizard, Ashley Parker Angel as Fiyero, Jye Frasca as Boq, Kristen Martin as Nessarose and Martin Moran as Dr. Dillamond.

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman.  The production is directed by Joe Mantello with musical staging by Wayne Cilento.  WICKED is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
