"First time seeing a Broadway show"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5

My very first Broadway show ever. I was skeptical. A friend had to convince me that I must see this show. I am so glad that I listened to her and went to experience the magic of Wicked. The show was beyond anything that I could have expected, the singing blew me away, the costumes were so elegantly made and the cast was phenomenal. It captured my attention, had me laughing, had me in tears, and had me wanting to come back for more! For anyone who's on the fence about seeing a Broadway show I would definitely recommend it and this would be where I would start!

I saw Wicked last year and fell in love with the show! The singing, story, costumes, sets etc were amazing!! The prices on tickets are still outrageous in price, we paid for six, but so worth it! Musicals are not usually my favorite things on Broadway, but this show is outstanding. I would go to see it again if the opportunity arose. Get tickets, you won't be sorry!

I saw this musical in NYC years ago with my cousin. This time went with my family- husband and two boys ages 15 and 11. I am certainly no expert on Broadway and am not a huge fan of musicals in general, but this is my favorite favorite favorite! The talent is incredible. It was one of my 11 year old's favorite things that we did in NYC (this his first visit). I *really* love the story - about the Wicked Witch from the Wizard of Oz- and am so glad my guys enjoyed it too. Go see it!
