"Wicked," the Tony Award-winning musical inspired by Gregory Maguire's 1995 novel about the young witches of Oz before Dorothy dropped in, returns to Chicago Oct. 30, for a limited run, Broadway in Chicago announced late Sunday.

During its initial 3-year stint, which concluded in January 2009, Chicago's production of the Stephen Schwartz-Winnie Holzman musical played more than 1,500 performances and grossed more than $200 million in ticket sales, breaking box office records.

This tour celebrating the 10th anniversary of the show's Broadway debut marks the second time since Chicago's sit-down production closed that "Wicked" has returned to Chicago.

"To be part of the 10th anniversary celebration and once again share 'Wicked' with Chicago audiences is a great honor," said Broadway in Chicago President Lou Raizin in a prepared statement.

Performances run Oct. 30 to Dec. 21, at the Oriental Theatre, 24 W. Randolph St., Chicago. Tickets for groups of 15 or more are available by phone at (312) 977-1710. Individual tickets will go on sale at a later date. Visit broadwayinchicago.com for more information.
