After breaking box office records and selling out in record time in 2012, "Wicked," Broadway’s biggest blockbuster, will return to ASU Gammage, Aug. 26 through Oct. 4.

Tickets for the return engagement go on sale at 10 a.m., March 30 at the ASU Gammage Box Office and at Ticket prices start at $34.

Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz. One – born with emerald-green skin – is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. "Wicked" tells the story of their remarkable odyssey and how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

“We are thrilled to have "Wicked" back for our 50th anniversary season. It will be a wonderful way to end our 50th year with this beloved show,” said Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, executive director of ASU Gammage.

With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, "Wicked" is directed by two-time Tony Award-winner Joe Mantello and features musical staging by Tony Award-winner Wayne Cilento.

Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, "Wicked" is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.

The musical is the winner of over 100 international awards (including a Grammy and three Tony Awards) and currently has eight productions around the world – in New York, London, Japan, Latin America, the United Kingdon, an Australasian tour and two concurrent North American national tours.

Since its New York premiere a decade ago, "Wicked" has grossed over $3.6 billion worldwide and has been seen by over 44 million across the globe. "Wicked" has been performed in over 100 cities in 13 countries around the world (U.S., Canada, England, Ireland, Japan, Germany, Holland, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, The Philippines and Mexico) and has been translated into five languages: Japanese, German, Dutch, Spanish and Korean.
