The costume is currently on display in the "American Stories" exhibition.

WICKED is the untold story of the witches of Oz. Long before Dorothy drops in, two other girls meet in the Land of Oz: one, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood while the other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.  WICKED tells the story of their journey and how these unlikely friends grow to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good.

The music and lyrics are by Stephen Schwartz, and it is produced by Marc Platt, Universal Pictures, The Araca Group, Jon B. Platt and David Stone.
