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. One -- born with emerald-green skin -- is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The story of how these two unlikely friends become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for what Entertainment Weekly calls "the best musical of the decade." Learn More
Patience is set in a contemporary English village, where Bunthorne, an ardent Star Trek fan, is worshipped by all the young ladies who have become Star Trek fans to gain his attention. That is to say, all except for the one he most wants, Patience. The local army regiment returns home on leave to find that even their own fiancees are infatuated with Bunthorne and cosplay dressing in Star Trek garb! A rival science fiction fan, Grosvenor, who adheres to the Doctor Who series, arrives in town and complications mount when he, too, falls in love with Patience. Who will win the heart of Patience–the Trekkie or the Whovian?
