‘Miss Gulch Returns’ delivers biting fun with her side of ‘Oz’ story  Bob Edes Jr. stars in the title role, revealing the softer side of Miss Gulch, well, relatively speaking a€“ medium-fine sandpaper is about as gentle as she gets. Written by composer and lyricist Fred Barton, the act (which actually pre-dates €œWicked) opens with a formally dressed Edes as himself, describing an imagined encounter with the bitter old spinster. More misunderstood than malicious, she now haunts cabaret rooms telling her tale and revealing her side of the story about that annoying little girl and her little dog, too.
