Behind the scenes with the Olivier Audience Award hopefuls
We go backstage with the West End plays and musicals in the running for this year's BBC Radio 2 Audience Award at the 2014 Olivier Awards
Ever wondered what the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North got up to before Dorothy started trotting around Oz in her ruby slippers? The story of ‘Wicked’, the stage adaptation of Gregory Maguire's acclaimed 1995 novel tells the tale of Elphaba and Glinda in their formative years, before becoming the witches we all know and love in ‘The Wizard of Oz’. Time Out watches Louise Dearman get ‘greened up’ in her dressing room to become Elphaba, then meet key cast members Gina Beck (Glinda) and Ben Freeman (Fiyero), who tell us a little more about one of the West End’s most magical productions.
