Video: Take a Ride on Glinda's Magic Bubble


Eight times a week, the actress playing Glinda in Wicked gets to make one of the most stunning entrances on Broadway. While the chorus sings the opening number, Glinda stands perched 30 feet above the Gershwin Theatre stage, waiting to make her entrance. It's a moment that must be thrilling, but only a few lucky actresses have been able to experience it... until now. 

In the immersive video below, brought to us by The Daily 360 team at The New York Times, see what it's like to make that first breathtaking entrance in front of an audience of almost two thousand people. Click and drag the video as it plays to spin around and get the full experience.
