Photo Coverage: WICKED Flies into the Canon Theatre 10/20-11/28
The smash hit musical WICKED has long been a favourite of theatre-goers in Toronto, and this Fall the National Tour flies back into the city for 6 weeks only at The Canon Theatre. This will be the third time WICKED has hit Toronto, and the engagement coincides with the show celebrating 7 amazing years on Broadway. If you are one of the few people who have not yet had the chance to check this show out, there are still a limited number of tickets available but they are bound to go fast!
WICKED tells the story of what happened before Dorothy landed in OZ, from the viewpoint of two unlikely friends - Galinda (who becomes Glinda the Good) and Elphaba (who becomes the Wicked Witch of the West). The original Broadway Cast featured Kristin Chenoweth and Idina Menzel (who won a Tony Award for her portrayal of Elphaba) and was an instant hit on the Great White Way.
The National Tour features two very talented actresses in the lead roles - Chandra Lee Schwartz as Galinda and Jackie Burns as Elphaba. The two girls were kind enough to take some time to talk to BWW and pose for photos once they settled into their temporary home at Toronto's gorgeous Canon Theatre.
