ISTANBUL- Hürriyet Daily News

Speech Bubbles is performing “The Witches of Oz,” based on the smash Broadway musical hit “Wicked” at Profilo Shopping Center in Şişli’s Mecidiyeköy area.

Performances will take place on Friday, Oct. 28, Saturday, Oct. 29 and Sunday, Oct. 30. “The Witches of Oz” tells the story of two young witches; one, an insecure outcast, and the other confident and outgoing. Their relationship grows from rivalry to deep friendship as they reconcile their very different viewpoints concerning politics, ambition, and the role of the individual in society. The audience can expect a visit from a certain girl from Kansas, but before that, the show explores the lives of the women who would change her life forever.

“The Witches of Oz” has a serious message enlivened by its witty characters and references to “The Wizard of Oz,” marvelous music, amazing costumes and an uplifting ending. The theater is close to Profilo, has free parking, and is near the metro.
