at the Orpheum Theatre
Based on the best-selling book Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West by Gregory Maguire, Wicked makes its triumphant return to San Francisco, where it received its pre-Broadway world premiere before garnering a few Tony Awards, launching Idina Menzel into superstardom and making "Defying Gravity" the most overdone musical theatre audition piece, much to the dismay of casting directors everywhere.
