Wicked Celebrates 5000th performance on Broadway

This post is a little bit belated, apologies but I was on holiday when it was all happening. Wanted to still write an update about it though because I wanted to make sure these pictures were on the blog & just in case anyone missed it.

So.. on 28th Oct Wicked on Broadway hit a milestone, they performed their 5000th show, making it the 11th longest running show in Broadway history. They celebrated with a rather Wicked cake after the show.

"The hit Stephen Schwartz-Winnie Holzman musical Wicked celebrated its 5,000th performance Oct. 28 at 7 PM at the Gershwin Theatre.
The musical is now the 11th longest-running show in Broadway history, having surpassed the record-breaking original runs of classics including Fiddler on the Roof; Hello, Dolly!; Miss Saigon; My Fair Lady; 42nd Street; and Cabaret. It's expected to overtake the original run of Rent (5,123 performances) in about four months."                        

We are loving the pictures of Rachel, the cast & the cake.
