Behind the Emerald Curtain is an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at Wicked. This event is great for diehard Broadway fans and newcomers alike. Even if you haven’t seen Wicked, you’ll be fascinated by the details and complexities that go into a major Broadway production. Led by members of the Wicked Broadway cast, your guides will take you through the creative process of a Broadway show, giving first-hand accounts of the birth of a new musical.

Participants take a guided tour through the exclusive Behind the Emerald Curtain Museum, which includes an elaborate set model by Tony Award-winner Eugene Lee and an up-close look at some of Tony Award-winner Susan Hilferty’s costumes (with beautiful details that are not always visible from the audience), as well as actual props and wigs from the show.

Behind the Emerald Curtain also highlights the work of the 125 people it takes to make every performance of Wicked happen. Each event concludes with a Q+A session with cast members, where you will have the opportunity to find out more about Wicked specifically and show business in general. The program lasts 90 minutes.
