On Wednesday, October 30th, the blockbuster musical WICKED will celebrate its 10th Anniversary on Broadway, a milestone achieved by only ten other Broadway productions in history. The creative team and many of the musical's previous cast members will celebrate WICKED's first decade with a special performance, followed by a company party on October 30th at 7:00pm. Today, WICKED cast members, creative team, and members of the original company and orchestra (some of whom are still performing in WICKED today) have shared their memories in honor of this milestone in a new video - check it out below!
WICKED currently has nine productions around the world, in New York, London, Japan (Tokyo), Australia/New Zealand (Auckland), South Korea (Seoul), Latin America (Mexico City), a U.K. Tour (Manchester), and two concurrent North American National Tours.
