Enjoy Celebrity Radio’s Kerry Ellis And Nigel Planer Interview Wicked…
As far as Alex Belfield at Celebrity Radio is concerned, Wicked is the best family musical IN THE WORLD!
Wicked: The Untold Story of the Witches of Oz – is a musical with music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman.
Kerry Ellis and Nigel Planer have been in 2 of the biggest and best musicals in the world. They both appeared in We Will Rock You and Wicked together.
So, we thought we’d catch up with them to talk about their lives and careers…
Belfield got to speak to Nigel & Kerry during their time @ Wicked:
Wicked tells the story of two unlikely friends, Elphaba (the Wicked Witch of the West) and Glinda (the Good Witch of the North), who struggle through opposing personalities and viewpoints, rivalry over the same love-interest, reactions to the Wizard’s corrupt government, and, ultimately, Elphaba’s public fall from grace.
Here’s Alex Belfield’s Exclusive Wicked Review….
It is based on the 1995 Gregory Maguire novel Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a parallel novel of the 1939 film The Wizard of Oz and L. Frank Baum’s 1900 classic story The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.
The musical is told from the perspective of the witches of the Land of Oz; its plot begins before and continues after Dorothy’s arrival in Oz from Kansas and includes several references to the 1939 film and Baum’s novel.
