On Tuesday 7th March, Alexia Khadime and Lucy St Louis made WICKED history as the first two black performers to play Elphaba and Glinda opposite each other in the long-running musical.
Summing up the night in a five-minute slot within The West End Frame Show would be impossible, so in this emergency episode, journalist Lisa Martland joins Andrew to delve into Alexia and Lucy’s magnificent performances and discuss why this was such a momentous moment for theatre.
