To celebrate the return of WICKED, Psycho Donuts has created a limited-edition donut that pays homage to the friendship between the show’s two leading characters, Elphaba and Glinda.
The raised yeast donut is filled with a green-tinted vanilla custard, topped with a strawberry cheesecake icing, and garnished with pearl and sugar crystal sprinkles. The donut is available for a limited time beginning Aug. 8 at Psycho Donuts’ Santa Clara (2000 El Camino Real, Santa Clara) and Campbell (2006 Winchester Blvd., Campbell) locations
The exclusive Bay Area engagement of WICKED will perform at San Jose’s Center for the Performing Arts (255 S. Almaden Blvd.) Aug. 14 – Sept. 8. Tickets are on sale now at www.broadwaysanjose.com, in- person at the City National Civic Box Office (150 W. San Carlos St., San Jose), or by calling 800-982-ARTS (2787).
The Broadway musical WICKED looks at what happened in the Land of Oz, but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships — until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”
WICKED has a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular,” and “For Good.” Having recently celebrated its 15th anniversary on Broadway, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. WICKED has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world and has thus far been translated into six languages.
WICKED is presented as part of the Broadway San Jose 2019–20 season. Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Tony Award winner Joe Mantello with musical staging by Tony Award-winner Wayne Cilento. WICKED is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Stage Productions, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt, and David Stone.
