Brenau student experiences a "Wicked" time on Broadway
Gainesville woman works behind the scenes on a New York City musical
Brenau University student Emily Taylor worked with the cast and crew of the Broadway musical "Wicked" for 12 weeks as part of an internship in New York City. She worked behind the scenes as a stage manager intern and entered into the theater building through the Gershwin stage door.

Emily Taylor arrived 45 minutes early to her first day as an intern on the set of the hit Broadway play “Wicked.” The 22-year-old Brenau University theater major stood outside of the stage door on a September morning in New York City and gave herself a mental pep talk before entering. “When I went in, I don’t want to say I was terrified, but I was scared,” Taylor said, after returning to her Gainesville home last month following her 12-week internship.
