Published

on

Hello, Readers! Wicked in Concert, a musical event showcasing the songs from one of Broadway’s most successful musicals, will mark the return of Broadway on August 29. The performance will feature new musical arrangements made specifically for this broadcast, performed by celebrities from the film, pop music, and television industries.

The musical, which had early pre-Broadway runs at San Francisco’s Curran Theatre, has had a year-long Broadway run, several international touring companies, and has become a favorite for inspiring young girls. The performances will be filmed in a variety of places, including Washington, D.C., Los Angeles, and New York.

Wicked, which debuted on Broadway in 2003 and is now in its fifth year, is the fifth longest-running production in Broadway history. The special event takes place in conjunction with the musical’s long-awaited return to the stage.

Wicked in Concert: Special Release Date

The show will air on PBS, PBS.org, and the PBS Video App on August 29 at 9 p.m. EST.

What is this about?

The concert, directed by Baayork Lee, is intended to commemorate Broadway’s reopening after the 16-month Covid epidemic closure. This show will feature new, never-before-heard Wicked musical arrangements developed specifically for this broadcast by music director and conductor Luke Frazier.

The Broadway huge hit “Wicked” takes a fresh look at what happened in the Land of Oz…from a different perspective. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman born with emerald-green skin who is intelligent, fiery, misunderstood, and gifted. Their initial competition transforms into the unlikeliest of friendships when she meets a vivacious blonde who is extremely popular… Until the world labels one as “good” and the other as “wicked.”

“Wicked,” based on Gregory Maguire’s novel, features Stephen Schwartz’s music and lyrics, as well as Winnie Holzman’s book. Tony Award winner Joe Mantello directs the show, which also features Tony Award winner Wayne Cilento’s musical staging. Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt, and David Stone are the producers of “Wicked.”

Who’s in it?

As per Deadline, the musical’s original Broadway stars Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel will co-host PBS’ upcoming Wicked in Concert special. Tony winners Rita Moreno, Cynthia Erivo, Gavin Creel, and Ali Stroker, as well as Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles, are all scheduled to play.
