Wicked Set-Up (photos)

The hit musical "Wicked" will be playing at the Benedum Center in Pittsburgh for four weeks in the fall of 2011. Set-up was on September 6 and the press was given the opportunity to visit the theater and witness the work that goes into bringing the land of Oz to cities around the country.
 The stage was in its raw form while the tour crews teamed up with local crews to assemble the massive set.
 The Time-Dragon Clock is a massive set piece which looms ominously over the audience. This animatronic creature moves, breaths smoke and is controlled by one technicians.
Glinda the Good Witch descends into Oz in a bubble which is assembled from two pieces: The circular rim which the actress stands in and the arm from which the bubble hangs.
