The international hit musical Wicked, which celebrates its 20th anniversary at Broadway's Gershwin Theatre this month, is marking the occasion with a host of events and partnerships, including one with The Plaza Hotel.

Wicked fans can currently indulge in the elegance of the Manhattan venue with a Wicked-themed afternoon tea at The Plaza's Palm Court Restaurant. The “Defying Gravi-tea” features sweet and savory delights, including the “Look to the Brest’ern Sky” pate a choux, the “Flying Monkey” macaron, and Wicked cocktails. The Palm Court’s dome has also been lit emerald green.
