The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, Wicked is the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in— Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, smart, fiery and misunderstood; Glinda, beautiful, ambitious and popular—and the remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good.
