Gershwin Theatre | New York City, New York
Speaking of Doctor Dillamond, did we mention that he also happens to be, well, a goat? Ironically, his wig is made up of yak hair, and it’s just one of about 120 wigs used in the musical. There are also fascinating animal masks that take hours to apply onto the actors’ faces, often till they go numb! All the girls will be in love with Glinda’s bubble dress, which boasts 20 different types of sequins and almost 100,000 sequins all in all! Not to be beaten, Elphaba’s Wicked Witch skirt takes the costume team three weeks to put together and she goes through four of them in the show! So come and be transported to a magical world at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City!
Did you know that seeing a live theater show really gets your heart racing? It’s not just a saying, it’s actually true! It’s actually been proven by multiple universities in several studies that audience members watching plays experience elevated heart levels for over 20 mins during a performance. 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 breathtaking Gershwin Theatre in New York City, as well as see one of the hottest theater shows of today, Wicked on Monday 2nd November 2020.
