Forget the learned, sympathetic tendencies toward Dorothy and her little dog and open your mind up to the other side of the yellow brick road in the Broadway blockbuster Wicked.
The Morrison Center for the Performing Arts is expecting tickets, which go on sale Friday, March 4, at 10 a.m., to sell out in record time.
With music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, Wicked tells the back story of how the once friendly witches of Oz came to be, before young Dorothy flew onto the scene. One is green skinned, fiery and misunderstood, whereas the other is beautiful, ambitious and popular.
The Morrison Center is suggesting that people interested in purchasing tickets for Wicked do so from the Morrison Center Box Office, which is open Monday through Friday, 10 a.m.-4 p.m., from any Select-a-Seat outlet, online at idahotickets.com or by phone at 208-426-1110 or 208-426-1494.

Wicked runs May 4-15. Show times and ticket prices vary.
