SO MUCH HAPPENED BEFORE DOROTHY DROPPED IN.
Back by “Popular” demand. Entertainment Weekly calls WICKED "the best musical of the decade,” and when it first played Houston in October of 2005, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony Awards®, WICKED is Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, a cultural phenomenon and was just named “the defining musical of the decade" by The New York Times.
Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in 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. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good makes for "the most complete and completely satisfying new musical in a long time" (USA Today).

A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held daily for WICKED, which will be performing from June 30 – July 25 at the Hobby Center. Each day, 2½ hours prior to show time people who present themselves at the Hobby Center box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum and then thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only. This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person. In addition to $25 lottery seats, an extremely limited number of tickets are still available for most performances, with the two performances on July 4 having the best availability.
