Wicked has turned 20, and thank goodness for that!
In celebration of the auspicious anniversary, Wicked featured a number of special Playbills throughout October. These limited edition Playbills featured special covers only available to audience members at special anniversary performances—until now. Purchase one or all of the limited edition 20th anniversary Wicked Playbills now exclusively in The Playbill Store.
Most limited were two special pink and green–themed performances October 28, which featured covers spotlighting original stars Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel; and October 30's starry green carpet anniversary celebration. The musical also greenified Playbill's logo for performances throughout October.

It is now the fourth-longest running production in Broadway history.

McCarthy, wig and hair design by Tom Watson, music supervision and arrangements by Stephen Oremus, orchestrations by William David Brohn, and dance arrangements by James Lynn Abbott.
