Lynn and I were two lucky ladies last Saturday. Here we are backstage at The Gershwin Theatre in New York City an hour before the curtains came up for Wicked.
~ The Great Wizard of Oz ~
Here's the real Wizard of Oz, actor Adam Grupper (left), and John (right), head carpenter at The Gershwin Theatre in New York City. John was a good sport. We're extremely grateful for the backstage tour. I especially loved walking down the "suicide stairs" he built into the back of the stage for quick exits. What a trip that was!
I also enjoyed walking through the green room and getting a glimpse of the actors before the show. They looked as calm and cool as can be. Walking through the orchestra pit was a tight squeeze.
Here we are on stage in front of the house that blew away in the tornado.
~ Glinda's "bubble" ~
~ A professional craftsman creating a wig for a member of the cast ~
~ The masks for the flying monkeys and Dr. Dillamond (the goat) ~
