Vosk reprises her performance as Elphaba after taking on the role on tour; also returning to the show is Curt Hansen as Fiyero.
Jessica Vosk, who played Elphaba in the national tour of Wicked, reprises the role on Broadway beginning July 16 at the Gershwin Theatre as the hit musical approaches its 15th anniversary on Broadway.
Vosk, also seen on Broadway in Fiddler on the Roof, Finding Neverland, and The Bridges of Madison County, succeeds Jackie Burns, who played her final performance July 14.
Vosk is reunited with Amanda Jane Cooper, who played Glinda on tour and previously joined the Broadway company.
Also joining the cast July 16 is former ensemble member and understudy Curt Hansen, who takes over from Ashley Parker Angel as Fiyero.
Since opening in 2003, Wicked has been performed in over 100 cities around the world. The musical, which recently became the sixth longest-running production in Broadway history, has amassed over $4.5 billion in global sales and has been seen by over 55 million people worldwide.
Tony Award-winning actresses Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth, who created the respective roles of Elphaba and Glinda — the not-so Wicked Witches of Oz — take a trip down memory lane and individually chat with Playbill about the long-running, hit musical that stormed Broadway ten years ago.
In an intimate conversation with Wicked producer Marc Platt, Idina Menzel reveals details about her upcoming album, her relationship with her son, her real thoughts about being called “Adele Dazeem” and more.
