Broadway Ticket Availability

Ana Gasteyer is no stranger to the stage, but she really earned her theatrical credentials by playing Elphaba, the green witch, in the Chicago company of "Wicked."
Now she will bring her performance to New York. Gasteyer steps into the lead role in the long-running musical at Gershwin Theatre on Oct. 10. She will star in the Broadway edition through Jan. 7.
"Wicked," which has a score by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman, tells the story of two young women who meet in the land of Oz long before the celebrated Dorothy Gale arrives.
The musical is still playing at the Oriental Theatre in Chicago and opens Sept. 27 at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London. A Los Angeles production opens in February at the Pantages Theatre.
