OBSESSED! Willemijn Verkaik Takes “Defying Gravity” on a World Tour

As she prepared to wrap up her run in Wicked, Willemijn Verkaik met up with Seth to chat about her background — she is from the Netherlands and has performed the role of Elphaba in three different countries and in three different languages.
