LITTLE ROCK – WICKED, Arkansas’ most popular musical, will return to Little Rock’s Robinson Performance Hall January 1-19, 2020. Tickets for the return engagement go on sale Monday, September 23rd at 10am.

To purchase tickets, visit Ticketmaster.com, call 501.244.8800 or visit the Robinson Performance Hall Box Office. Ticket prices start at $33 plus applicable fees.

The Broadway sensation WICKED looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.  Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade,” and by Time Magazine as “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage.”

Having recently celebrated its 15th anniversary on Broadway, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines, Mexico, Brazil, Switzerland and China) and has thus far been translated into six languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish, Korean and Portuguese. WICKED has amassed nearly $5 billion in global sales and has been seen by over 60 million people worldwide. 

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman.  The production is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento.  WICKED is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.

Welcomed by the Little Rock Convention and Visitors Bureau, WICKED will appear at Robinson Performance Hall in Little Rock for twenty-four performances January 1-19, 2020 (Tuesdays-Fridays at 7:30pm, Saturdays at 2pm & 7:30 pm, Sundays at 1pm & 6:30pm; there is a special midweek matinee on Thursday, January 2nd at 2pm).  Tickets may be purchased in person at Celebrity Attractions, via phone at 501.244.8800 or online at Ticketmaster.com.  Groups of 15 or more receive a discount by calling 501.492.3312.
