The Untold Story of the Witches of OZ
Wicked Tickets have been flying out of theatres quicker than a witch’s broomstick. That’s right. One of arts and Medias most triumphant of creations since theatre and film began has now seen humanity and misunderstanding to the “evil” Wicked witch of the west. It now looks as though The Wizard of OZ only told one side to the story. Originating from the work of Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed 1995 novel which tells us of the unlikely but profound relationship between Glinda and Elphaba. The two names belonging to the wicked witches of the East and West side of OZ.
The two characters meet as sorcery students at Shiz University. Glinda carries the status of the loveable and popular blonde coming from a healthy background whereas Elphaba plays the awkward girl in society who feels cast out and rejected from the world. However, against the odds the two girls form a bond of friendship that will later be tested and broken after the introduction of the Wizard of OZ who places them both on very different paths. Glinda's unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba's determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future which will ultimately fulfil the destiny of “Glinda The Good” andElphaba “The Wicked Witch of the West”.
