Durham Performing Arts Center | Durham, North Carolina
EVENT RESCHEDULED TO TUESDAY 5TH SEPTEMBER 2023. Originally Monday 13th October 2070. All original tickets are still valid!
We were as blown away at the scenery as we were at the performance itself. It moved to accommodate different settings, things floated and flew around on stage and it was all truly magical. And for good reason. We were told that the production flew in just under 80 tonnes worth of scenery. Even more mind blowing, that it takes over 8 km of cable to automate it, not that we could spot any! Have we gotten your attention? Come and experience this famed show now at the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham.
Theatre is a sophisticated expression of a simple human need — one might call it an instinct — to mimic, to project stories onto ourselves and others, and to create meaning through narrative and metaphor. We see this instinct expressed in children when they act out real or imagined characters and events. We have evidence of theatre-like performances in some of the oldest human cultures, long before the creation of Western theatre in Ancient Greece. So theatre matters, in essence, because we can't help it. It's part of what makes us human. So if you want to satisfy that natural human desire, come to the Durham Performing Arts Center in Durham to see one of the greatest shows ever, Wicked on Tuesday 13th October 2020.
