With rejoycifying from musical theatre fans, WICKED has commenced its new season at the Sydney Lyric Theatre, with the precinct around the theatre being decorated green to mark the Emerald City appearing back in Australia.

Both a prequel and an “alternate story” to The Wizard of Oz, WICKED follows to recognisable young women who meet in the land of Oz. One born with emerald-green skin is smart, fiery, misunderstood and possessing an extraordinary talent. The other is bubbly, blonde, ambitious and exceptionally popular. They become rivals, then friends…until the world decides to call one “good” and the other one “wicked”… and then things get complicated.

To complement the opening of the Sydney season, the producers at Crossroads Live Australia have confirmed that new tickets for the production will be available from later this week. Pre-sales will commence tomorrow, with general public on-sale to commence on 1 September 2023. Ticketing information can be found on the musical’s official website.

Commenting on the opening of the first stop in what could be another major national tour for the production, producer John Frost had the following to say:

I’m thrilled we’re able to bring WICKED to Sydney which will coincide with its 20th anniversary on Broadway. This is one of the most lavish musical productions to have ever played in Australia, the full Broadway experience. You get your money’s worth and then some, with the lavish sets and opulent costumes, a feast for the eye and the ear. If you have never seen WICKED, come and see it for the first time and be spellbound. If you have seen it before, I know you’ll want to come back and be enthralled all over againGet your tickets now while you can.

New South Wales Minister for the Arts John Graham also added:

I am thrilled that the Sydney Lyric Theatre is hosting WICKED, one of my favourite musicals, during its 20th anniversary year on Broadway. I am looking forward to seeing this production. Visitors and locals alike can enjoy a bit of Broadway here in Sydney.
