MINNEAPOLIS—Hennepin Theatre Trust announced that a day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held for WICKED, which is returning to the Orpheum Theatre (910 Hennepin Ave., Minneapolis) with performances fromWednesday, April 12-Sunday, May 14 as part of the 2016-2017 Bank of America Broadway on Hennepin Season

The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each other’s lives for good has made WICKED one of the world’s most popular musicals.
Based on the best-selling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony® Awards.
