When: Tuesdays-Sundays and Dec. 26-29. Continues through Dec. 23 2019
The Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman musical Wicked remains the single most popular show (contemporary division) in St. Louis, so it's little wonder that the Fox Theatre would bring it back as a yuletide treat for audiences. Based on Gregory Maguire's novel of the same title, Wicked reveals how the green-skinned outsider Elphaba and the popular girl Galinda became friends, and then the enemies known as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda, the Good Witch. The show is performed Tuesday through Sunday (December 4 to 29; no show on Christmas Day) at the Fox Theatre (527 North Grand Boulevard; www.fabulousfox.com). Tickets are $49 to $229, and judging by past history, selling very quickly.
