Wicked at The Detroit Opera House

Lunch at Fishbones Greektown

Thursday, August 9, 2018     SOLD OUT!

WICKED, the Broadway sensation, 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- 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." From the first electrifying note to the final breathtaking moment, WICKED - the untold true story of the Witches of Oz - transfixes audiences with its wildly inventive story.
