Filled with wonder and enchantments, the magical stage musical follows their extraordinary journey from sorcery students to becoming the iconic Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West from L. Frank Baum's beloved tale "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz."

The show has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, a book by Winnie Holzman, and is based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire. The production is directed by Joe Mantello, with musical staging by Wayne Cilento. Scenic design is by Eugene Lee, costumes by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Tony Meola, projection designs by Elaine J. McCarthy, and hair and wig designs by Tom Watson. Music arrangements are by Alex Lacamoire and Stephen Oremus, with dance arrangements by James Lynn Abbott, orchestrations by William David Brohn, and musical supervision by Stephen Oremus.

WICKED is produced around the world by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt, and David Stone. Its executive producer (UK/International Tour) is Michael McCabe. In Manila, the show is presented by Lunchbox Theatrical Productions and Concertus Manila, together with Globe Live.
