‘Wicked’ ticket sales exceed $1 million

Joan Marcus Anne Brummel stars as Elphaba in the touring production of “Wicked,” which is at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center.

The Broadway musical “Wicked” has brought in more than $1 million in ticket sales since opening April 18. More than 14,000 people have seen the show so far, according to the North Charleston Performing Arts Center. The show is part of the center’s Best of Broadway series.

“As expected, the ticket sales for “Wicked’s” first week at the North Charleston Performing Arts Center were phenomenal,” said Dave Holscher, General Manager of the North Charleston Performing Arts Center in a statement. “Already more fans have seen “Wicked” than any other touring Broadway show to ever play the Lowcountry.”

Seats are still available for shows through April 29. A day-of-performance lottery for a limited number of orchestra seats will be held. People are asked to arrive 2½ hours before showtime to enter their names into the lottery. After 30 minutes, a limited number of orchestra seats will be sold for $25.
