It's been called "a cultural phenomenon" (Variety) and has racked up more than 50 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tonys. Now's your chance to see Broadway's Wicked -- the untold story of the witches of Oz -- right here in San Jose. Long before Dorothy drops into Munchkinland, two girls meet in the land of Oz.

The acting was great and the intimate setting makes you so involved in the play. We loved it.

Using a bare-bones staging, live music, and ensemble-based theatricality, the denizens of Stella and Stanley’s New Orleans help to relate the tragic tale of a lost soul.

David Mamet referred to his writing as “the greatest dramatic poetry in the American language.”
