When Wicked comes to town, crowds flock to the theater like it’s the Emerald City. This beloved Broadway musical, which premiered in San Francisco almost 14 years ago, tells the story of Elphaba, a bold gal with a mossy complexion—long before she was known as the Wicked Witch of the West in the Land of Oz. Accompanied by a critically acclaimed score, featuring songs such as “Popular,” and of course, “Defying Gravity,” the witches of Oz will spin a radical narrative about their origins, friendships and differences. The show runs through Sep. 8 at the SJCPA.
