WICKED, presented by Broadway Across America Utah, will captivate audiences this summer from July 9–Aug. 24 at the Capitol Theatre. And the magic continues outside the theatre with Bambara's series of Wicked-inspired cocktails.

Bambara’s head bartender Austin Craig has put together six different Wicked-inspired speciality cocktail drinks for The Vault, Bambara’s bar, during the nine-week run to give you a taste of what's to come.

Join Bambara for a meal and a cocktail, and then head to the theater to complete the experience. A Sunday brunch is perfect for matinees, and Bambara will open early on Sunday evenings, at 5 p.m., so guests can make the 6:30 p.m. show.
