This article features an interview with Nina Essman, the general manager of “Wicked” worldwide and also includes information on an upcoming Korean-language production of “Wicked,” which is set to follow the Asian Touring Company’s 2 -month engagement.
The Asian Tour of “Wicked” closed in Singapore on Sunday and will next be moving on for a short run in Seoul, Korea. With that, the following cast changes will occur:
