DetroitMI, Nov. 28, 2011 – A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held daily for WICKED, which will be performing from December 7–31 at the Detroit Opera House. Each day, 2½ hours prior to show time people who present themselves at the Detroit Opera House box office will have their names placed in a lottery drum and then thirty minutes later, names will be drawn for a limited number of orchestra seats at $25 each, cash only.  This lottery is available only in-person at the box office, with a limit of two tickets per person.

WICKED, with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz (GodspellPippin, Disney’s Enchanted, Academy Award® winner forPocahontas and The Prince of Egypt) and book by Winnie Holzman (“My So Called Life,” “Once And Again” and “thirtysomething”), is based on the 1995 best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire.  The musical is directed by two-time Tony®  Award winner Joe Mantello (Take Me OutLove! Valour! Compassion!, The Vagina Monologues) and features musical staging by Tony®  Award winner Wayne Cilento (AidaThe Who’s TommyHow To Succeed…).  WICKED, the untold story of the witches of Oz, is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B.

Long before Dorothy drops 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 story of their remarkable odyssey, how these two unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. 

WICKED features set design by Tony®  Award winning Eugene Lee (Ragtime, Show BoatCandideSweeney Todd), costume design by Tony®  winner Susan Hilferty (Spring AwakeningInto the Woods, Assassins), lighting design by Tony®  nomineeKenneth Posner (Tony®  Award winner for The Coast of UtopiaHairspray) and sound design by Tony Meola (The Lion King). Stephen Oremus is the show’s music director.  Orchestrations are by William David Brohn, with dance arrangements by James Lynn Abbott.
