The Kansas City Broadway Series is pleased to announce single tickets will be available Monday, Oct. 4, 2021 for the Kansas City engagement of the hit Broadway musical, WICKED. The touring production of WICKED flies into the KANSAS CITY BROADWAY SERIES on Jan. 5–23, 2022.

“After many months longing to be back in the theatre, WICKED is the perfect show to kick off the New Year. It delivers all the stagecraft magic and gorgeous music, but at its heart, WICKED is a story that brings us all together,” said Leslie Broecker, President, Broadway Across America, Midwest. “Kansas City loves WICKED and we’re very excited to welcome the show back to Music Hall.”

The Broadway sensation WICKED looks at what happened in the Land of Oz...but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships...until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” WICKED has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade,” and by Time Magazine as “a magical Broadway musical with brains, heart, and courage.” NBC Nightly News calls the hit musical “the most successful Broadway show ever.”
