WICKED Australia Co-producer John Frost said, “I’m thrilled we’re able to bring WICKED to Melbourne and play at the beautiful Regent Theatre where Australia’s love for the show began. This is one of the most lavish musical productions to have ever played in Australia, the full Broadway experience. You get your money’s worth and then some, with the lavish sets and opulent costumes, a feast for the eye and the ear.
Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other young women met in the land of Oz. One born with emerald-green skin is smart, fiery, misunderstood and possessing an extraordinary talent. The other is bubbly, blonde, ambitious and exceptionally popular. They become rivals, then friends…until the world decides to call one “good” and the other one “wicked.”
