THEATER | "Wicked" 

Acclaimed author and artist Gregory Maguire has built his career on the idea that there is always another side to the official story. Maguire has written several books in which he explores the perspectives not considered — those of the supposed antagonists — in many popular stories. His twists on classic tales include "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister," "Mirror, Mirror," and his first, and arguably most popular, "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West," for which he has written three sequels.

Broadway's award-winning, record-breaking blockbuster, "Wicked," is based on Maguire's book, and will return to Rochester's Auditorium Theatre (885 E. Main St.) this week. The show opens on Wednesday, April 3, at 7:30 p.m., and continues through April 21. Show times this week are Wednesday and Thursday at 7:30 p.m., Friday at 8 p.m., Saturday at 2 & 8 p.m., and Sunday at 1 & 6:30 p.m. An additional matinee on Thursday, April 4, will take place at 1 p.m.

Tickets begin at $37.50. For more information or to secure your seat, call 800-745-3000 or visit Learn more about the show at
