MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - More than 80 crew members spent Tuesday unloading the set for Wicked at Orpheum Theatre.

The crew had to unload 13 tractor-trailers full of equipment. The whole process takes nearly 2.5 days.

Wicked's set is one of the more elaborate in all of showbiz--rivaling productions of Phantom of the Opera or Lion King.

"It's a pretty big spectacle," Wicked manager Steve Quinn said. "We've got $2 million worth of costumes, and it's a lot of fun."

Cast members arrive in Memphis on Wednesday and the first show is set for 7:30 p.m.
