It’s been great to see two relatively new musicals make it into our  Top 100 Greatest Musicals Poll. Firstly with Hamilton and now taking our Number Two spot – Wicked!

Based on the book Wicked: The Life And Times Of The Wicked Witch Of The West by Gregory Maguire, Wicked the musical has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman.

Wicked arrived on Broadway in 2003 at the Gershwin Theatre where it still resides after a try-out in San Francisco with a cast including Kristen Chenoweth as Glinda, Idina Menzel as Elphaba and Joel Grey as The Wizard.

Millions of people have now seen Wicked around the world and a major movie adaptation in currently in the works.

Wicked has won three Tony Awards and six Drama Desk Awards and its original cast album won a Grammy Award.

Over a decade after its premiere, Wicked continues to be a record-breaking production around the world.
