A Wicked Good Time

The cast of Wicked visited the DBAP Monday. We entertained them in the Owner's Suite on their day off. The show runs through May 16th at the Durham Performing Arts Center.

Male lead
Chris Peluso (Fiyero) sang the National Anthem – an excellent rendition!

There’s been a shark-like feeding frenzy for Wicked tickets. Dawn Baumgartner Vaughn, writing in the Herald-Sun, calls the musical an uplifting cultural phenomenon:
It brings several timeless messages. It brings voices with ranges most of us can only dream of. It brings fantastical, delightfully twisted and beautiful costumes.

It was an honor to be in the company of the female leads, Vicki Noon (Elphaba) and Natalie Daradich (Glinda) sans green make-up and golden locks, respectively. Down-to-earth young women with diva-level talent!
