They will not use a trap door on the tour.  I can't see them cutting a hole in every touring stage it visits. Technology has moved on at such a pace that there are new ways to create illusions suitable to the plot.  I don't think we will be dissappointed.

yep although the odd thing about wicked to me is for a big budget show about witches it is actually very simply staged and lacks a lot of magic

Well, the WickedUK twitter said this, so they could be using a set that's not being used now (I was guessing the Dutch set but who knows): "LOOK at the OFFICIAL #WickedOnTour truck arriving with the new set that's been brought 13000 miles across the world!"

Apparently the main bulk of the set will come from pieces of the San Francisco set which has been in storage since that production closed in 2010.

However, much of the set will also be constructed from scratch to accommodate and adapt to the smaller size of many regional theatres in the UK.

That's what I've heard from well placed sources anyway.

As true as that is, that won't be why plans were being examined in the rehearsal room. Will probably have been for marking up on rhe floor the ocations for set pieces, so they know the podium will be here, the wizard head there etc.

Feels really weird seeing Emily as a blonde Glinda rather than the blue haired Glinda, but she definitely looks the part.

Nikki looks FANTASTIC! Perfect Elphaba.
