Wicked — Back by “Popular” Demand. The New York Times calls Wicked “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster,” and when it first played in Miami in 2007, it broke box office records and sold out in record time. Long before that girl from Kansas arrives in Munchkinland, two other girls meet in the land of Oz. One—born with emerald green skin—is smart, fiery and misunderstood. The other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. How these two grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good Witch makes for the most completely satisfying new musical in a long time. March 3-21 at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts. Tickets start at $41.50. www.arshtcenter.org.
