The mega-hit Wicked returns to Miami’s Arsht Center for a three-week run beginning Wednesday. A limited number of orchestra seats will go into a lottery before each performance, with winners eligible to purchase one or two tickets at $25 each (cash only). Anyone wanting to participate needs to show up at the Ziff Ballet Opera House box office, 1300 Biscayne Blvd., Miami, two and a half hours before a performance; the drawing takes place two hours before each show.
Telling the story of the unlikely friendship between the rival witches in The Wizard of Oz, Wicked features a score by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman. The show will be at the Arsht through March 29, with performances at 8 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 2 and 8 p.m. Saturday, 1 and 7 p.m. Sunday (additional matinee March 12). Tickets are $49-$125.
