West End Live 2011

West End Live 2011 will take place in Trafalgar Square on 18th and 19th June.  The change of venue is necessary because of renovations taking place in Leicester Square but personally, I feel that the event was fast out-growing it's original location so it will be interesting to see how the change affects it.

New Pro Shot Gallery

I'm finally sorting out a new gallery featuring the best of the Wicked Pro Shots/Publicity Photos, which you can preview below. Main photo credits are Joan Marcus (US), Tristram Kenton (London), Ralf Brinkhoff & Birgit Mogenburg (Stuttgart), Jeff Busby (Melbourne) and Takashi Uehara (Tokyo).

Wicked breaks more records

Wicked enjoyed a remarkable holiday period both sides of the Atlantic.  The Broadway production grossed a record $2.2 million over eight shows.  Meanwhile the London production grossed £1,002,885 over nine shows (week commencing 27th December), achieving the highest single-week gross in London theatre history.

Meanwhile, congratulations to former Wicked stars Norbert Leo Butz and Michele Federer on the birth of their daughter, Georgia Teresa, on 2nd January.
