WICKED Australia Co-Producer John Frost today announced that WICKED the Musical will fly to Perth in May 2015 as part of its 10th Anniversary tour. The Perth season at the Crown Theatre, Burswood will follow the Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane legs of the tour.
Broadway’s #1 show for an unprecedented ten consecutive years, WICKED has been declared “A Cultural Phenomenon” by Variety and “The Best Musical of the Decade” by Entertainment Weekly. This tour of “one of the most successful shows in Broadway history” (The New York Times) celebrates 10 years at the top of the Broadway box office.
“We are thrilled to bring WICKED back to Perth” said John Frost. “Perth audiences flocked to WICKED during the last season, and we’ve had hundreds of requests on social media to bring it back. WICKED is a musical phenomenon; it has been seen by over 40 million people worldwide and regularly grosses in excess of US$1.8 million each week on Broadway. It is truly a once in a lifetime experience”.
Andrew Hill, Chief Operating Officer, Crown Perth said, “WICKED was one of the most popular shows ever to run at Crown Theatre and so to welcome the production back is a real privilege and an opportunity for the people of Perth to either see the show again, or if they missed it first time round, to see the show in their home State. The biggest selling show on Broadway, WICKED is filled with intrigue, sabotage and fun – it’s a must see for any musical fan.”
