The musical follows Elphaba (The Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (The Good Witch) on their adventures in OZ long before Dorothy showed up on the scene.
The show has long been hailed a hit by both audiences and critics for its storytelling and music.
“Wicked” last stopped in Cleveland in 2017.
Tickets will be available here on August 2.
