Almost a decade ago, the hit musical “Wicked” previewed in San Francisco, before going on to become a Broadway hit.

Now, the show is returning home once again, for a four-week run opening Jan. 23 at the Orpheum Theatre in San Francisco.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 5, starting at $35, at and (888) 746-1799.

Fans of “Wicked” will want to see it again. And if you’ve never seen the show, here’s your chance to find how what happened in the land of Oz before Dorothy got there.
