In honor of its 20th anniversary on Broadway, the hit musical “Wicked” has teamed up with the Plaza Hotel for two special experiences.

Beginning on October 6, fans can indulge in the elegance of The Plaza Hotel’s famed Palm Court Restaurant for the “Defying Gravi-tea.” This afternoon treat will feature special sweet and savory delights, including the “Look to The Brest’ern Sky” and the “Flying Monkey” Macaron. Guests can also enjoy The Palm Court’s mixologists’ special themed cocktails under the Palm Court’s iconic dome, which will be lit emerald green in honor of the show.
