Event: Wicked in Manila! Yes!

I am THISCLOSE to confrming that Wicked will be coming to Manila. Yes. THISCLOSE. Maybe closer.

Wicked is the musical basis of Gregory Maguire's book of the same title. It is somewhat a prequel to the Wizard of Oz -- the story of Elphaba (Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (Good Witch of the North).

Sidenote: Elphaba's name came from the initials of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz' author L. Frank Baum. Haha, sorry ngayon ko lang nalaman.

Okay, so I've been browsing through tweets of those I follow. One tweet led me to an article from
ABS-CBN. What did it say? Nothing official, but some teasers from the supposed producer who's bringing Wicked to Manila!

Concertus Manila, a well-known full-service entertainment company who brought shows to Manila like  the Phantom of the Opera, very recently put up in their Facebook page a cover photo and another photo. See for yourself.

First teaser: "Where will she strike next?" is part of Wicked's "Thank Goodness" song. I can just hear Filipino fans of Wicked saying "oh my god, oh my god, oh my god". Hahaha!

Second teaser: This photo was added later on. "Prepare to be spellbound" is Wicked's tagline in their UK tour.

Final teaser: This was posted by Ticketworld Manila on their Instagram page as #goodnews.

Well, these are just teasers, but they might as well launch an official statement, right? Hmm, it's confirmation enough for me. :-) I am so gonna watch! Are you?

Pin It!
