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 story. There are also stunning animal masks that take hours to apply onto the actors’ faces, often until 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 altogether! 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 during the show! So come and be transported to a magical world at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City!
We've all heard happy-ever-after tales of Princes and Princesses, of Heroes and Heroines. But have you ever heard the story of the wicked witch? From the land of Oz, survey a parallel universe to unearth the witches' story. Wicked is a Broadway show with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and book by Winnie Holzman, based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel “Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West.” Wicked began its life on stage in 2003 and has since earned rave reviews. The original Broadway production bagged three Tony Awards and seven Drama Desk Awards, and a Grammy Award for the original cast recording, which generated the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good”. This breathtaking Wicked performance is a dazzling work of art with an eternal and worldwide appeal. Wicked is headed to this neck of the woods, so grab your tickets as it runs on Friday 1st July 2022 at the Gershwin Theatre, New York City, New York.
