Sunday 4th November 2018, back at the Millennium Centre in Cardiff Bay for another performance of ‘Wicked’. Only one show today but a chance to watch on a Sunday for a change. I do wish that a few more productions would perform on these days instead of Monday, make a nice weekend of things and an opportunity for more people to visit the theatre. A bit controversial probably but it seems a waste of a weekend in my opinion.
Anyway enough of my point of view and onto the show. The cast for today comprises the following, Amy Ross comes back in to play Elphaba with Charli Baptie continuing as Glinda. Also Benjamin Yates continues as Fiyaro, while all other cast members are the same as yesterday’s list.
Yet again another fabulous show, Charli was exceptional once again as Glinda (I’ve seen her three times now) and it was fabulous to watch the superb Amy Ross as Elphaba once again, (haven’t seen her in the role since Bristol), amazing characterisation and a stunning voice to go with it. It’s great to be able to watch the different actresses take on the character they portray. So many good things arise from watching this brilliant musical, which seems to make me keep wanting to see it multiple times. A short blog today as I’ve got loads more opportunities to talk Wicked in the next few weeks, before the end of the run in late November.
