TicketLiquidator's Ticket of the Week: "Wicked" at Cleveland's PlayhouseSquare Performing Arts Center

VERNON, CT--(Marketwire - August 24, 2009) - TicketLiquidator, the leading provider of the world's most extensive ticket inventory for hard-to-find, low-priced tickets, today announced that tickets to "Wicked" in Cleveland, OH are available for purchase at affordable prices at

"Wicked the Musical," now in its seventh year, will be opening at PlayhouseSquare in Cleveland, Ohio during November 2009. The popular Broadway show follows the story of the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North before the events of "The Wizard of Oz" took place. "Wicked" will run through December 2009 and includes Chandra Lee Schwartz of "High School Musical" and "Hairspray" as Glinda The Good Witch and Donna Vivino of "Les Miserables" as Elphaba The Wicked Witch.

Elphaba, who is destined to become the Wicked Witch, meets Glinda, the future Good Witch, at Shiz University. While Glinda is popular and beautiful, the green-skinned Glinda is intelligent yet underappreciated. Examining such higher themes as rivalry, discrimination and government suppression, "Wicked," according to Time Magazine, "works because it has something Broadway musicals, so addicted to facetiousness and camp, have largely given up on: a story that adults can take seriously."

The musical was modeled after Gregory Maguire's novel of the same name with music and lyrics by Stephen Swartz, writer of "Godspell" and "Pippin." The production first opened as a Broadway show 2003, receiving mixed reviews from Critics. Soon the play catapulted to one of the highest weekly-grossing productions of all time.

"The popularity for 'Wicked' on tour is immense for many fans across the nation from 'Wicked' New York and 'Wicked' San Francisco to 'Wicked' San Diego and 'Wicked' Austin, this is a must see theatrical production," stated Alexandra Owens, Managing Editor. "'Wicked' performances in Cleveland give Ohio-based 'Wicked' followers an opportunity to see arguably one of Broadway's most successful musicals right in their hometown."

Since its initial run, "Wicked" has been honored with nearly fifty awards ranging from the Tony Award for Best Leading Actress in a Musical for Idina Menzel's performance as Elphaba to the Grammy Award for Best Musical Show Album. With another welcome addition to the "Wicked" family, "Wicked" Cleveland tickets are TicketLiquidator's Ticket of the Week.
