Trivia: What’s the name of the Wicked Witch of the West in the musical “Wicked”?
Correct Answer: Elphaba
So why is this answer correct? : Based on Gregory Maguire’s 1995 novel of the same name, the hit Broadway musical “Wicked” has captivated audiences since its opening night in 2003. The show reimagines what happened in the magical land of Oz before Dorothy arrived, and centers on Glinda, the blonde and bubbly “good” witch, and Elphaba, the green-skinned “wicked” witch. Idina Menzel, who later voiced Elsa in Disney’s “Frozen,” originated the role of Elphaba in the show’s Broadway debut, and won a Tony for her performance.
