Wicked Hits Toronto, Events Scheduled with the Stars and Gregory Maguire

The disc features music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Academy Award-winner for Pocahontas and The Prince of Egypt, and is based on the best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire. Take home the CD with any Stila makeup purchase of $175, including a WICKED Set.
Gregory Maguire READS AT DAVID MIRVISH BOOKS
Gregory Maguire, the celebrated author of WICKED, had written a dozen novels for children before launching this, his first adult novel. A devotee of children's fantasy, Maguire's subsequent novels for adults are variations on a theme: Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister considers Cinderella as a seventeenth-century maid from Harlem; Lost evokes the ghost of Charles Dickens's Scrooge; and Mirror Mirror concerns a High Renaissance Snow White trapped in a household governed by the scheming Borgias. Originally from Albany, NY, Maguire lives outside Boston with his partner, the painter Andy Newman, and their three children.
