DALLAS –After breaking box office records and selling out in record time in 2005, 2007 and again in 2010, “Wicked,” Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, will return to Dallas Summer Musicals and the Music Hall at Fair Park April 10-May 5. Tickets for the return engagement went sale Monday.
“I’m very pleased that we have been able to secure a return of “Wicked” for Dallas,” said Michael Jenkins, President and Managing Director of Dallas Summer Musicals. “Since every seat of the Music Hall at Fair Park was sold for the musical’s previous three engagements, we were unable to accommodate large numbers of people who wanted tickets to this wonderful show. In my opinion, the national tour is even better than the Broadway production, which I also loved.”
Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. “Wicked” tells the story of their remarkable odyssey, and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
