Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
The tale circles around the unlikely friendship between two sorcery students, green-skinned misfit Elphaba and little-miss-popular Glinda. The pair, 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 fantastic 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 appeared in Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum. So come see these phenomenal actors at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City!
Did you know that watching a live theater show really gets your heart racing? It’s not just a saying, it’s really true! It’s actually been proven by multiple universities in various studies that audience members watching plays experience elevated heart levels for over 20 mins during a show. The increase recorded is actually considered the optimal heart rate to stimulate cardio ﬁtness and stamina according to the British Heart Foundation, meaning the audience members were working out while sitting in the theatre! You can experience all of this at the iconic Gershwin Theatre in New York City, as well as see one of the hottest theater shows of today, Wicked on Wednesday 7th October 2020.
