From the Tony Award-winning composer of The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, Falsettos and Little Miss Sunshine, comes a show about death that’s full of life. Inspired by the events of 9/11, William Finn wrote a series of songs about the people, places and things most dear to him that have passed on. Elegies tells all of our stories as life and loss as a shared experience. Benjamin Franklin once said, there are only two certainties in life, death and taxes – and a show about taxes would be really boring! Elegies is a moving, funny, heartfelt, celebration of life and love. Not to be missed!

Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two girls who first meet as sorcery students at Shiz University: the blonde and very popular Glinda and a misunderstood green girl named Elphaba.

Following an encounter with The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, their friendship reaches a crossroads and their lives take very different paths. Glinda’s unflinching desire for popularity sees her seduced by power while Elphaba’s determination to remain true to herself, and to those around her, will have unexpected and shocking consequences for her future.

Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of
