“Wicked” defies gravity in Orange County!

Glinda and Elphaba in the musical Wicked

It’s here! “Wicked” is one of the most soaring and imaginative Broadway shows ever created, about the friendship between Glinda and Elphaba before they became the good witch and the wicked witch of the west, beloved characters from “The Wizard of Oz.” Combining dry satire on the nature of girlfriends, higher education and gossip with inspiring anthems on courage and friendship, you will never see the green girl with the pointy hat the same way again. (Watch “Defying Gravity” the famous pivotal duet, here.)

“Wicked” will soar March 9 through April 3 in Segerstrom Hall at the Segerstrom Center for the Arts, 600 Town Center Drive, Costa Mesa, 714-556-2787,
