December 6, 2017 - January 21, 2018

Once upon a time in the Land of Oz, there was a girl and her dog - no, scrub that. This musical goes way before the arrival of Dorothy Gale and her pooch Toto. THIS is the story of two magically inclined women, one blonde, and one green of skin - and their coming-of-age as the forces of good and (perceived) 'wicked'. Discover the musical phenomenon of the new century, based on the critically acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire, which explores the foundation of the Oz legend, of what made Glinda and Elphaba become the icons of good and bad, and whether all is what it appears to be in later stories.

Ford Center for the Performing Arts

venue exterior

24 West Randolph Street, Chicago, IL 60601

Also known as the Oriental Theatre (its original name), The Ford Center has seen legendary performers, including The Three Stooges and Judy Garland, take to its stage. When the theatre's doors opened in 1926, it took the form of a grand movie palace with exotic architecture inspired by India. Although it is no longer a luxurious cinema, the center has thrived as a live performance venue, hosting the finest Broadway productions. A night out at the Ford Centre is just as glamorous an affair as it was in the theatre's early days as its vintage grandeur has been lovingly restored and maintained.
