    I recently attended the production Wicked at the North Charleston Performance Center in Charleston, S.C.
    I watched Miss Torns performance of role as Elphaba, which was astounding.
    This was a matinee performance on Saturday 22 of April 2012.
    There were several comments from the audience whom has seen the the earlier performance and were more impressed with the Saturday matinee featuring Miss Torns.

    Joe – We are glad you enjoyed her. I have seen her live as Elphaba as well; she has an astounding take on the role and a voice that just fills the theatre.

    We’ll forward your thoughts to Ms. Torns. Thanks for commenting!
