Vibe Hotels with a WICKED Partnership

Press Release | 27 August 2009

Vibe Hotels is the official Sydney accommodation partner for hit musical WICKED – one of the most successful shows in theatre history and the winner of 20 major awards including a Grammy® Award and three Tony Awards®.

A breathtaking musical that manages to be comic, dramatic, moving and exhilarating, WICKED will open in Sydney’s Capitol Theatre on 5 September, after a record breaking season in Melbourne’s Regent Theatre.
Rachel Argaman, CEO, Toga Hospitality said, “We are delighted to be the official accommodation partner for the hit musical WICKED. Guests can purchase WICKED accommodation packages at Vibe Hotel Sydney including overnight accommodation and an ‘A’ reserve ticket starting from $217 per person through Showbiz.”

A range of Stay & See accommodation and show packages are also available from Showbiz for Toga Hospitality properties including Vibe Hotels , Medina Apartment Hotels and Travelodge Hotels and include overnight accommodation and ‘A’ reserve tickets to WICKED.

One of Australia’s leading theatrical producers whose Broadway productions have won two Tony Awards®, John Frost is accustomed to hits, but, he admits, WICKED is something he has never experienced. “WICKED comes with all the blockbuster bells and whistles, certainly,’ he says. ‘But aside from its spectacle, wonderful lyrics and score, its wit and warmth, WICKED also touches other, unexpected, and intriguing emotions.”

“I have been amazed by the capacity of WICKED to attract visitors from all over, in Chicago WICKED drew audiences from across America, it stayed in Chicago three years making it the longest running theatre production the City had seen. In Australia we have found the same, people recognise that productions of the scale and spectacle of WICKED are rare and they make sure they see it while the its here.”
