Gershwin Theatre | New York City, NY
We were as blown away at the scenery as we were at the show itself. It moved to fit different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all quite magical. And for good reason. We were told that the production flew in just under 80 tonnes worth of scenery. Even more mind blowing, that it takes over 8 km of cable to automate it, not that we could spot any! Have we gotten your attention? Come and experience this iconic show now at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City.
Theatre models for us a type of public discourse that lies at the heart of normal life, and builds our skills for listening to different sides of a conversation or argument, and sympathizing with the struggles of our fellow human beings, whatever their views may be. When we watch a play, we learn what happens when conflicts don't get resolved, and what happens when they do. We develop our faculty for imagining the outcomes of various choices we might make in our personal lives and our political lives. It's not surprising that, in repressive societies, theatre has often been aligned with the movement toward openness and freedom. All of these things are a part of the most incredible show in all of 2021, the phenomenal Wicked, which will be live on stage at the iconic Gershwin Theatre!
