Oz in the News 9.8.17

We’ve been to see the West End’s new Wicked to see whether its worth you getting a ticket If you’ve always wanted to see Wicked, have heard friends or family rave about it, or you’re just aware of Wicked’s reputation and its 100+ major international awards, then you should definitely get a ticket to see this cast who have taken to their roles like ducks to water. And their performances are so fresh and appealing that Wicked aficionados won’t want to miss another trip to the theatre either.

Meet The New West End Cast Of WICKED! Hockley is proud to be carrying on a grand tradition of Welsh Wizards, following in the footsteps of Des Barrit and Martyn Ellis, both of whom he’d seen in the show.

After 35 years of making her own kind of magic happen at New Orleans’ leading public television station, Beth Arroyo Utterback continues her magical journey at the helm of the city’s leading public broadcast outlet. As the newly appointed general manager of WWOZ (90.7 FM), she happily agrees that, like Judy Garland in the movie, “’There’s no place like home.’ That’s what it feels like to me.”
