Stephen Schwartz’s musical, Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz, is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West. Stephen Schwartz worked with Emmy Award-winning writer Winnie Holzman to develop an outline for a plot that was condensed enough to be suitable for a musical, as the original novel is rather epic and sprawling. While the musical takes Maguire’s central idea of a retelling of the 1939 musical movie The Wizard of Oz from the viewpoint of the “Wicked Witch of the West”, its plot differs in significant ways.
