If you’re having a bad week, rest easy because “Wicked” is flying into Memphis for two weeks of performances at the Orpheum starting tonight!
The wildly popular show will run from March 7-25 and is by far one of the most popular shows to hit Memphis this year. “Wicked” arrived at the Orpheum today with nearly $2 million worth of costumes and a multi-million dollar set. Performances are close to selling out multiple nights and if you want a chance at $25 tickets, you’re in luck! Arrive at the Orpheum 2.5 hours before your show and your name will be entered into a drawing for the best seats in the house. The drawing will take place 2 hours before showtime and only a select few will win.
This is probably my most anticipated show of the season and I’m still kicking myself that I was never able to see Kristin Chenoweth in the role of Glenda the Good Witch, but this version looks to be just as sweet. For this tour Mary Kate Morrissey and Gina Claire Mason will be stepping into the roles of the witches. And never fear, Glenda will still teach all of us how to be the best, most popular version of ourselves.
Look for my review Friday and in the meantime, you can buy your tickets here.
