Two Wicked events have been scheduled for the week leading up to the annual Wicked Day Block Party on Oct. 28.
On Oct. 23 cast members from the hit Stephen Schwartz musical will join the creators of the hand-crafted Madame Alexander Elphaba and Glinda dolls at FAO Schwarz for a special signing and performance. The premiere of the new collectible dolls is scheduled for 4:30 PM. The famed toy store is located in Manhattan at 765 Fifth Avenue at 58th Street.
A meet, greet and autograph signing with members of the current cast of Broadway’s Wicked will be held Oct. 25 at the NBC Experience Store in Rockefeller Center. The morning event is scheduled to begin at 11 AM.
As previously announced, the annual Wicked Day Block Party will be held Oct. 28 at The Friendship Garden, which is located on West 150th Street and Amsterdam Avenue in Harlem. The three-hour celebration â€” hosted by New York Restoration Project founder and chairperson Bette Midler â€” will begin at 11 AM. In addition to the opening of the new garden, the block party will include games, giveaways and a costume contest as well as special exhibits with tips on “how to live a greener life.” The Block Party will also feature performances by current Wicked cast members.
Wicked continues to play Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre.
