Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz takes place in the Land Of Oz. It’s plot begins before Dorothy’s arrival from Kansas (as told in the original story “The Wizard of Oz”).
It’s first act takes place largely at “Shiz University”, where a younger Elphaba (who will become “The Wicked Witch of the West”) becomes friends with Galinda (soon to be “Glinda”, or the Good Witch of the North).
The play then proceeds to the Emerald City, with many references to the original telling. We don’t want to give away any spoilers here, but if you are interested in a more full telling of the plot, you can see the following useful links:
