And we can tell you where to see the costumes while you wait for your tickets.
Variously described as awe-inspiring and spectacular, Wicked, in case you didn’t know, is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy dropped in, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. Wicked tells the enthralling story of two unlikely friends and how they became the wicked witch of the west and Glinda the Good.

And while you’re waiting for your tickets, we can tell you where to get a taste of this visual masterpiece for which more than 350 costumes, 80 hats and 75 wigs were created to transform the cast into the citizens of Oz.
From angry mobsters to school students, goats to monkeys and princess gowns to witches wardrobes, Susan Hilferty’s costumes are all truly exquisite.
Now, Sydney has the chance to see them up close and personal.
Until the end of November, Glinda’s famous bubble dress and an elaborate emerald city outfit will be on display at Sofitel Wentworth Sydney, and until the end of October you can see a gorgeous female costume from the emerald city on display at Luna Park with some of the original sketches by Susan.
