In honor of the recent “Wicked” movie rumblings…

I dug up the profile I did on Gene Weygandt, the actor who has played the Wizard in a ton of different theatres, including during Chicago’s long run of the show. I did this interview in college; when I found out Gene was from my hometown, I just looked him up in the white pages and gave him a call. We met at the Park Ridge ice rink where his son was in lessons–such a nice guy, and so excited to see he’s joined the North American tour cast!
