Fantastic!

Booked in advance and was apprehensive that it would feel like it wasn't worth the money. It was. Amazing night. Highly recommended.

“Wicked” is the back story of the all-too-familiar Wizard of Oz. It explores the friendship of Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West to most of us) and Galinda (Glinda the Good Witch). We could not have picked a show with a more timely message. Good vs. Evil. Things are not always as they appear. Sometimes, we cast someone who... More

When I booked for New York I knew I wanted to see wicked on Broadway and I'm so glad I did! I was with my mum and before it I was a little nervous that she would find it boring as she's not into fairytale stuff (she chose jersey boys another night - also brilliant!) but she loved it. Beautiful... More

What a great show that not only I enjoyed but also my teenage daughters. They loved the music, design and the story. Not a bad feat for girls whose mother tongue is not English. Well done and a great show

We weren't 100% convinced at the beginning, but it was definitely worth it! Breathtaking scenery, brilliant vocals and wonderful costumes. The only negative thing was, that it was far too cold inside the theater - we were freezing, although we had jackets and scarves with us. We mentioned it to the staff (which was working behind the bar in down... More

I loved show so much most beautiful show I watched. Short trip to the NYC but worth while Wicked was excellent. Voices were excellent. Characters were so good but theater was to cold. The staff usher was so nice she gave me her sweater because it was to cold. Beautiful show. I want to come back with my family

first off, I Never write bad reviews but I was very disappointed after seeing this show. My mother and I go to New York about every year and we always catch a broadway show while we are there. I had been wanting to see this show for a while and we ended up finding alright deals for a little over... More

This was the second time I've seen it and I enjoyed it just as much as I did the first time! My 11 year old niece was here from Oregon and was so excited we were going, it was her friend's favorite and she desperately wanted to see it. Sometimes when you hear how great a show is it can... More

I'm not the least bit musically inclined, so looked for different shows. "An Act of God" was amazing, funny, and very entertaining. If music is not your thing, go see "An Act of God"!

This Broadway play cannot be compared to any other Broadway experience including Hamilton! Wicked is a must see if you're visiting the New York City area. I go to many Broadway plays and this by far is the top of the list

Staying in Midtown

Neighborhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit - spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's paradise where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
