The actress was playing Glinda in the New York stage production of Wicked, and during a flying scene she suddenly realised she needed help.
She recalls, “I’m Like (singing) ‘Elphie… oooh crap’… literally. And I thought, ‘I’ll just run offstage. I ran offstage and one of the flying monkeys was standing there just minding his own business and I was like ‘Get me out of my dress! Get me out of my dress! Get me out!’ He said I turned into somebody he’d never seen before.
“I ripped off that dress, did my thing, went right back out onstage and hit the same pose.”
