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. Seizing the opportunity to create havoc (as per usual), Seth asked her to sing “Defying Gravity.” The catch? She’d be required to switch amongst the three languages (and permutations thereof!) according to the cue cards doled out by his assistant. Read Seth’s weekly column. Visit, Seth’s online home.
