A complimentary "tasting event" with a local guest celebrity chef follows each performance.

Wicked
When last seen Pittsburgh in 2011, Wicked broke box office records and sold out in record time. Winner of 35 major awards, including a Grammy and three Tony Awards, Wicked is Broadway's biggest blockbuster, a cultural phenomenon and was just named "the defining musical of the decade" by The New York Times. Long before Dorothy arrives in Munchkinland, two 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. See how they became the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.
