It's funny to think of it now, but WICKED actually wasn't a huge blockbuster from the start. It got poor reviews out of town in San Francisco and middling reviews in New York and was offering discounts at the very beginning of its run. It built up the audience over several months and had developed into a big hit by Tony time (it had opened the previous fall). Not at all like THE LION KING, which was a blockbuster straight out of the gate and immediately displaced RAGTIME and CABARET as the hottest tickets in town and was the show the beat for Best Musical from the moment it opened.
