'Wicked' Stuttgart CD    AND MORE!!!!!!

Ive just been given a copy of the Germany CD.
WOW!
These two girls, Willemijn Verkak as Elphaba and Lucy Scherer as Galinda, are stunning. I have no knowledge of the German language but it makes for an interesting listen! I know its done to the Broadway track but its worth getting just for the stunning vocals.

I am about to purchase it as I have heard extracts and they are amazing. However that photo is not of the German Elphaba and Glinda, infact its a little closer to home, London's Kerry Ellis and Helen Dallimore (although she left last July).

Willemijn Verkak and Lucy Scherer
here are two photos from a recent photoshoot thingy they did:

"SAALPAN THEATRE BOCHUM. Germany."

Actually it's officially known as the Starlighthalle. And I have to say, seeing the show there is absolutely magical. I read a rumour somewhere that ALW considered transferring the London production into a new custom designed venue, and even had a building in mind in bankside. Unfortunately he failed to secure it and the disused bankside power plant became the home of masturbatory art known as Tate Modern.

The official name of it is Starlight Express Theater Bochum these days.
It used to be called Starlighthalle - a lot of people though still refer to that theatre using that name.

MH2: You are indeed right. My ticket from Christmas says "Starlight Express Theater". My tourist map from Bochum says "Starlighthalle". Way to go on consistency in town...

Could it be "SaaLplan"?
Because that's "seating plan" in German...

Thanks for the stunning pictures of all the German Theatres especially the Palladium Theatre and The Starlight Theatre Wicked, are there any theatres in Germany that haven't been built in the last ten years?

I was at Starlight in Bochum, was better technically than the one in the Apollo Victoria, but still Starlight at heart, unfortunately!

I saw that theatre in Hamburg where the Lion King is from the river passing by. Looked great!
The rain we knew is a thing of the past -
deep-delving, dark, deliberate you would say
browsing on spire and bogland; but today
our sky-blue slates are steaming in the sun,
our yachts tinkling and dancing in the bay
like racehorses. We contemplate at last
shining windows, a future forbidden to no one.

re: 'Wicked' Stuttgart Cast Recording

An older theatre - the Theater des Westens where Tanz der Vampire is on till end of March.

Musicals really just got big in Germany in the 80s - the first big one in Hamburg and in Germany was Cats, followed by Phantom of the Opera, the Neue Flora theatre was e.g. especially built for that show after a lot of hassle - musicals used to be around before but often they were shown in repetory with straight plays at town theatres (at least that used to be the case here in Hamburg).

Wasn't The Musical Theatre in Berlin built for Der Glockner Von Notre Dame, I find it amazing that in Europe and Japan that they build theatres for a particular show.

Yes, but not the theatre Tanz is in. The one built for Der Glockner Von Notre Dame was the Potsdamer platz theatre where Mamma Mia is playing.

Does anyone else think that that Glinda's nose looks a tad funny?
