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 performance. There are also mind blowing 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 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 during the performance! So come and be transported to a magical world at the Gershwin Theatre in New York City!
