SOMETHING WICKED COMES TO MINNEAPOLIS

Monday September 30, 2013

Did you know it takes 130 people at any given time to run the hit musical “Wicked,” on stage now at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis?  Learn this and more fun behind-the-scenes facts from Production Stage Manager Jason Daunter, the self-described "chief cook & bottle washer, therapist, mother, artistic eye for the show," and much more to his cast and crew of the first national tour of “Wicked.” 

Daunter spoke with us as the crew feverishly loaded in the monster set from 15 trucks that arrived in Minneapolis from Boston on Sept. 13. This is one of 10 simultaneous worldwide productions of this almost 10-year-old hit musical. Watch this interview to find out who the stars are, learn a little about this production and what you can expect if you attend one of the shows over the six weeks it plays Minneapolis’ Hennepin Theatre Trust.
