The Broadway musical “Wicked” is in its second and final week of another run at the Wharton Center. Billy Tighe plays Fiyero, the male lead in "Wicked," the story of the witches Elpheba and Glinda. Fiyero is a key figure in how the others transform into the Wicked Witch of the West and the Good Witch of the North in the land of Oz. Tighe speaks with WKAR’s Scott Pohl about playing the role of the love interest in “Wicked.”

The musical “Wicked” is back in East Lansing.

For the next two weeks, the Wharton Center at Michigan State University will be transformed into the land of Oz for the Tony Award winning “untold story of the witches of Oz.”

WKAR's Scott Pohl went to the Wharton Center for load-in day.

When you’re touring the country with a big production like “Wicked,” there’s bound to be some confusion.

Assistant stage manager Matthew Leiner is responsible for the safety of the cast and crew. He says the first day in a new building is always a little nerve-wracking.

The Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University is opening another exhibition away from the MSU campus.

In Old Town Lansing, a show featuring the work of Kristin Cammermeyer, a recent graduate of the Cranbrook Academy of Art, kicks off Friday.

The exhibit is at the former Chrome Cat bar on Grand River Avenue.

Broad Art Museum curator Alison Gass likes the notion of taking over a found space not designed to be a museum. That’s what they’re doing at this pop-up museum in Lansing.
