Gershwin Theatre | New York, New York
The musical circles around the unlikely friendship between two sorcery students, green-skinned misfit Elphaba and little-miss-popular Glinda. The two, of course, go on to fulfil their destinies as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda The Good. The struggles of Elphaba are exquisitely conveyed by Jacqueline Hughes, who starred in the UK and Ireland tour to much acclaim. (In some shows, the role may be played by Jodie Steele, fresh off her run in War of the Worlds in the West End.) The role of blonde bimbo Glinda is played to perfection by Carly Anderson, who recently performed in Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum. So come see these phenomenal actors at the Gershwin Theatre in New York!
