New (Virtual) Tour Gives You an All-Access Pass to the Home of ‘Wicked’

Fans of Wicked, the magical musical about the witches of Oz, can now get a 360-degree tour of the show’s home. Explore the newly renovated Gershwin Theatre, thanks to Google Business Photos (which is similar to Google’s Street View technology). The interactive experience allows users to encounter over 15 Wicked character and artifacts through four levels of the Gershwin Theater. Fans can take the tour and search for such characters as Elphaba, the wrongfully maligned witch; Glinda, her goody-goody rival; the mysterious Wizard himself; and several flying monkeys. Take the tour by clicking here.

Wicked opened on Oct. 20. 2003 at the Gershwin Theatre and, as of the week ending Oct. 13, 2013, the Broadway box office has taken in $774 million. The story follows the political and social machinations behind the scenes of the Wizard’s rule in Oz before Dorothy’s arrival. Elphaba, later known as the Wicked Witch of the West, is really a compassionate advocate for the underprivileged in the magical land while Glinda, the Good Witch of the North, is not as angelic as she seems.
