Finally! WICKED in Manila this January 22 2014


How could you possible include a geeky tech angle to WICKED finally showing in Manila this 2014? Well, when everyone else was tweeting and Instagram-ing, the first thing I did was to edit the WICKED (Musical) Wikipedia entry to add Manila, Philippines and the CCP to the list of international shows:

As a fan of the original book by Gregory Maguire (I read WICKED: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West during my college days about a decade ago), I’ve never had the chance to watch the musical so this got me pumped. I’m also glad that one of my blog sponsors (SMART Infinity) is also a sponsor of this major event together with VISA and the Diamond Hotel.

For those wondering, the roles of Elphaba and Glinda will be played by Jemma Rix and Suzie Mathers respectively, of the Australasia cast. It is of note that Jemma Rix has visited the Philippines a week before the press conference because her husband competed at the 70.3 Iron Man in Cebu.
