Wicked Australia moves to Brisbane and opens January 2011

After it was officially announced, last week, that Sydney production of WICKED was due to close September 12th 2010, now is announced that Wicked is set to fly north of the border to open in all its emerald glory in the Lyric Theatre, QPAC in January 2011 in the city of Brisbane.
WICKED Australia Co-Producer John Frost said, “Right from the start this show has been an overwhelming hit so we are absolutely thrilled to be able to bring her, in all her emerald beauty, to Brisbane.
“WICKED is a phenomenon, the most successful musical in the world today, and appeals to everyone from 8 to 80. People love it for so many different reasons – some people come to see WICKED for the engrossing story, some for the astonishing sets and costumes, some
for the soaring ballads, some for the deeper messages, and some to see the life-affirming friendship between the two girls who grow up to be Glinda the Good and the Wicked Witch of the West. Melbourne and Sydney audiences have been blown away by WICKED and
now it’s Brisbane’s turn.
When the Australian production of WICKED arrives in Brisbane it will have played over 866 shows and will have been seen by well over 1 million people. WICKED’s record-breaking Australian run began in June, 2008 at Melbourne’s Regent Theatre, where it broke the
city’s box office record and ran through August, 2009. The production transferred to Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on September 5, 2009 and will conclude its record-breaking run on September 12, 2010.
