Benedum Center for the Arts

January 24 — February 11

Various times

One of Broadway’s most beloved and longest-running musicals returns to Pittsburgh January 24 when “Wicked” opens the curtain on a two-and-a-half week residency at the opulent Benedum Center in the heart of Downtown’s Cultural District.

By now you know the tale: “Wicked” is the untold story of The Wizard of Oz, a grand and splendid spectacle starring the ebullient Dorothy and green-skinned Elphaba, plus some familiar friends along the way.

The hit show debuted in 2004, taking the Tony for Best Scenic Design and Best Costume Design, among others. It’s currently the 8th longest-running Broadway show ever, and will surpass “Oh! Calcutta!” for #7 next month. Anyone with a brain knows not to miss it when it’s in town.

Run time is 2 hours 45 minutes, including intermission.

There will also be a autism-friendly performance of “Wicked” on Saturday, February 3, at 2 p.m.
