Sarofim Hall at the Hobby Center | Houston, TX
The musical revolves around the unlikely friendship between two sorcery students, green-skinned misfit Elphaba and little-miss-popular Glinda. The pair, of course, go on to fulfil their destinies as the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda The Good. The struggles of Elphaba are perfectly conveyed by Jacqueline Hughes, who starred in the UK and Ireland tour to much acclaim. (In some shows, the role may be played by Jodie Steele, fresh off her run in War of the Worlds in the West End.) The role of blonde bimbo Glinda is played to perfection by Carly Anderson, who recently appeared in Sunset Boulevard at the London Coliseum. So come see these outstanding actors at the Sarofim Hall at The Hobby Center in Houston!
You are trying to decide if seeing a performance this 2021 is worth it?
