“I’m thrilled we’re able to bring ‘Wicked’ to Melbourne, and play at the beautiful Regent Theatre where Australia’s love for the show began,” Co-Producer John Frost says. “This is one of the most lavish musical productions to have ever played in Australia, the full Broadway experience. You get your money’s worth and then some, with the lavish sets and opulent costumes, a feast for the eye and the ear.”
“The new Australian cast is exceptional and has been embraced by ‘Wicked’ fans. If you have never seen ‘Wicked’, come and see it for the first time and be spellbound. If you have seen it before, I know you’ll want to come back and be enthralled all over again.”
Tickets are on sale 20 October.
