Thanks so much, first of all, for doing an awesome podcast! I enjoy listening! Anyways, I have a theory about the Wicked Witch. You may notice that, in the promos, she has blonde hair. in every Oz story I’ve seen, Glinda, not the wicked witch, has blonde hair. so, my theory is that Glinda is the wicked witch, and Elphaba/ Theadora/ whatever her name is on Once is the good witch… just a random thing I thought up, but I could see them doing it! What do you guys think? Thanks again!! 🙂
