Gregory Maguire Quotes

Biography

Type: Novelist

Born: June 9, 1954

Died:

Gregory Maguire is an American novelist. He is the author of "Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the Wes"t, "Confessions of an Ugly Stepsister", and several dozen other novels for adults and children. Many of Maguire's adult novels are inspired by classic children's stories; Wicked transforms the "Wicked Witch of the Wes"t from L. Frank Baum's "The Wonderful Wizard of Oz" and its 1939 film adaptation into the misunderstood green-skinned Elphaba Thropp. The blockbuster Broadway musical "Wicked", at its height running nine companies simultaneously around the world, was inspired by Maguire's first adult novel. The musical is the ninth-longest-running play currently staged in London's West End (as of September 2015), and the tenth-longest-running show in Broadway history.
