Wicked opens in 15 days and I think everyone in Manila who has a ticket is pretty excited! If you don't have a ticket yet, you may still get them via Ticketworld as the Manila run has been extended until February 23rd. I am sure that this will be a pretty awesome Valentine surprise too!
As for me, we got tickets for my late birthday treat this January and I just can't wait to be shushed when I sing along to their songs lol. Anyway, just to get you more excited, check out the publicity photos and videos below.

One of the most popular and awarded shows in Broadway in the last decade, winning at least 32 awards since its opening in 2003, will definitely hop on that broom stick on the way to Manila as recently confirmed by broadwayworld.com.
The news about the possible Manila staging of the musical was initially reported by Abs-Cbn and BroadwayWorld in March 2013. Rumors strengthened in June when teasers about the show were posted from official accounts of Concertus Manila, Ticketworld and a dedicated Wicked in Manila Twitter account.
Based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel - Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum's classic story - The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, the musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz; set in a timeline before Dorothy's arrival from Kansas.
More details will be revealed on August 14th on the show's press conference in Manila.
