DETROIT (WJBK) - The Broadway smash hit "Wicked" has returned to Detroit.
The show is at the Detroit Opera House not through September 2. "Wicked" tickets are hard to come by, but you still have a chance to score some great seats. And, they'll only cost you $25.
Broadway in Detroit is doing a seat ticket lottery for every show. Here's how you can score the tickets.
Show up to the Detroit Opera House two and a half hour prior to showtime, and your name will be put in the lottery. They'll draw the winners 30 minutes later (two hours prior to showtime) -- and the winners will get orchestra seats for just $25. You must show your ID when you enter, and then again when you buy the tickets.
If you're not able to swing the lottery, tickets for "Wicked" start at $43. You can get them online, or by calling or visiting the Tisher Theatre or Detroit Opera House box offices. You can get more information on that here.
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.
