Rejoicify and Festivate! Chicago's Wicked Celebrates First Anniversary
As noted a few weeks ago, Chicago's very "Popular" sit-down production of Wicked is about to celebrate its first anniversary and still continues to sell out each performance. To date, over 1 million people have seen this production at the city's glorious Ford Center for the Performing Arts - Oriental Theatre.
The anniversary party will be done in style, albeit across the river and down Chicago's Magnificent Mile from Wicked's Windy City home. The celebration commences this Tuesday, June 20 at 12:30 pm at Chicago's bustling Water Tower Square Park (Michigan Avenue and Pearson Street).
The centerpiece of the festivities will be Chicago's largest Wicked sing-a-long, complete with cast members including Kristy Cates (Chicago's Elphaba), who will lead a group sing-a-long of "Defying Gravity" to demonstrate that "everyone deserves a chance to fly."
Free sets of two Wicked tickets will be awarded to the first 365 fully greenified, wickedly-dressed Wicked Witches of the West. Sounds like an event worth flying in for.
This is Steve On Broadway (SOB).
