Oh, What a Night! “Wicked” Returns to Durham, and Tiffany Haas and Christine Dwyer Set DPAC Ablaze

The Durham Performing Arts Center will present "Wicked" on May 2-6, 8-13, 15-20, and 22-27

Incendiary performances by Tiffany Haas and Christine Dwyer really lit up the Durham Performing Arts Center stage during the May 3rd press-night performance of “Wicked,” whose four-week return engagement runs through May 27th. Haas is delightfully dim as the insufferably snobbish and self-centered wealthy blonde beauty Galinda, who ironically comes to be known as Glinda the Good; and Dwyer is simply wonderful as her raven-haired, green-skinned, hair-trigger-tempered socially conscious college roommate Elphaba, a pariah at Shiz University who will become the Wicked Witch of the West as her skill at sorcery manifests itself.
