Hollywood, Calif., – The producers of WICKED, Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, announced today that due to “Popular” demand, six additional weeks of performances will be added through Sunday, March 15, 2015 at Hollywood Pantages. Individual tickets for this new block of performances will go on sale to the general public on Sunday, October 26 at 10:00am online at www.HollywoodPantages.com or www.Ticketmaster.com/Wicked, by phone at 800-982-2787, and at the Hollywood Pantages Box Office (6233 Hollywood Boulevard). The box office opens daily at 10am except for Holidays. Performances of WICKED will begin Wednesday, December 10.
WICKED solidified itself as a Los Angeles favorite with its most recent, highly-successful engagement during the 2011 holiday season. WICKED celebrated a record-breaking L.A. premiere in 2005, which was followed two years later by an extended engagement that would go on to run two years, becoming one of the longest-running Broadway musicals in L.A. history.
The musical is directed by two-time Tony® Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me Out, Love! Valour! Compassion!, The Vagina Monologues) and features musical staging by Tony® Award winner Wayne Cilento (Aida, The Who’s Tommy, How To Succeed…). WICKED, winner of over 50 major awards, including a Grammy® Award and 3 Tony® Awards, is the untold story of the witches of Oz. It is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
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, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
WICKED has been declared “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety and “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly. WICKED currently has nine productions around the world, in New York, London, Japan, Australasian Tour, South Korea, Latin America, a U.K. Tour, and two concurrent North American National Tours. Since its New York premiere a decade ago, WICKED has grossed over $3.4 billion worldwide and has been seen by over 42 million across the globe. WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 13 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, and Mexico) and has thus far been translated into five languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, and Korean.
