Wicked Majestic Theatre San Antonio, Texas

The Majestic Theatre in San Antonio, Texas is currently enjoying the Wicked run as flying monkeys soar through the stage, witches cackle at every turn and a dragon constantly exhales smokes and bubbles from his deep and dark mouth.

The play is based on Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel which tried to understand the backgrounds of the two witches that make up the story of Dorothy - the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch, Glinda. Maguire gave the Wicked Witch of the West a first name, Elphaba, that tips itself to the original writer of Oz L. Frank Baum, and took to the history of Oz. Though the majority of Wicked doesn’t meet up with “Wizard of Oz’s” story until the very end, which the play mostly recalls the 1939 film set more than the novel, but for those fans many Wizard of Oz questions are ansowered including “How did the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion and the Scarecrow come to be in such a state? Where did that green skin come from? Etc…If you want to see the show while playing at the Majestic Theatre, from Tuesdays-Friday, 2 and 8pm, Saturdays 2 and 7:30pm and Sunday check out Wicked tickets from Wicked The Musical Tickets Online.
