Music Hall at Fair Park. The witches of Oz have landed in Dallas, and they’re ready to cast a spell over you. Follow the yellow brick road to the Music Hall at Fair Park for your chance to see “Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz.” Hailed as “Broadway’s Biggest Blockbuster” by The New York Times and “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety, this musical is sure to make you think, laugh and cry. Broadway is a magical place, and “Wicked” brings The Emerald City to life with the untold story of two girls who met in the Land of Oz, long before Dorothy arrived. Galinda is the bubbly, blond popular girl who everyone considers good. Elphaba, on the other hand, was born with emerald-green skin. She’s smart, fiery and possesses an extraordinary talent in the field of sorcery, becoming known for defying gravity. As a result, she is what people like to label as some- thing bad, or rather, wicked.

These two girls end up as roommates and an initial rivalry between them later results in an unlikely friendship. You will see them work their way through their different personalities and viewpoints, a rivalry over the same love interest and Elphaba wish- ing her appearance didn’t make her a social outcast. With a plot filled with lots of twists and turns, don’t miss out on seeing this phenomenal show and learning how Glinda the Good Witch and The Wicked Witch of the West came to be known.
