Wednesday 7th February 2018, another day off work and another trip to the Bristol Hippodrome to watch the best show in the world ‘Wicked’. As you can see from the title this will be my 23rd performance of this incredible musical, over the past few years since it first toured, back in 2014/15. looking back at last weeks show, Wicked has a really great cast with some stand out performances throughout. So I’m really looking forward to this afternoons matinee, just to make my midweek excursion out of the Welsh valleys another day I’ll never forget.
Talking of the cast, we have a few changes from my last visit with Amy Ross playing Elphaba and Charli Baptie as Glinda. Seeing it so many times gives me the opportunity to hear different actors and actresses playing the main roles, which for me, shows the strength in depth in the theatre world that the UK currently has in abundance. Last week I managed to catch the superb partnership of Nikki Bentley and Helen Woolf, today a different one. And what another fabulous performance given by Amy and Charli, these two Also work well together, with again such wonderful voices ringing out around the auditorium. this has been yet another immense privilege to watch these amazing performers live on stage.The frame has Helen Woolf (Glinda), Amy Ross (Elphaba) and Aaron Sidwell (Fiyaro), as the three lead performers of this fabulous musical.
Yet again another fabulous performance from everyone on show at Wicked on tour. Even though I’ve seen this so many times, I still have a few tears in my eyes on certain sections of this wonderful musical, as I keep on mentioning on every visit. I love this show so much I really can’t wait for my next visit, it can’t come around quick enough for my liking.
