Casting news

FROM Monday, February 2, 2015, Emma Hatton will star as Elphaba in the hit musical Wicked, which is currently booking at the Victoria Palace Theatre until November 7, 2015.

Currently the Standby Elphaba, Emma Hatton will replace international Wicked star Jennifer DiNoia, who will play Elphaba from October 27, 2014 to January 31, 2015.

Meanwhile, current star Kerry Ellis plays her final performance as Elphaba on Saturday, October 25, 2014. Savannah Stevenson continues throughout in her acclaimed starring role as Glinda.

Acclaimed as “one of the most popular West End musicals ever” (Evening Standard), the London production is the 10th longest running show in the West End. Now in its 9th year, Wicked recently surpassed the 3357-performance run of the original production of Jesus Christ Superstar to become the 13th longest running musical in West End theatre history.

While continuing its open-ended London run, a spectacular UK touring production is now playing until July 2015 (and is currently at the Liverpool Empire Theatre until October 11, 2014 and opens at the Mayflower Theatre in Southampton on October 21, 2014).

Around the world, Wicked has already been seen by over 42 million people in 13 countries and won 100 international awards. The original Broadway production remains “Broadway’s biggest blockbuster” (The New York Times) after more than a decade at the Gershwin Theatre.

Based on the acclaimed novel by Gregory Maguire that ingeniously re-imagined the stories and characters created by L. Frank Baum in The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Wicked tells the incredible untold story of an unlikely but profound friendship between two sorcery students. Their extraordinary adventures in Oz will ultimately see them fulfil their destinies as Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.
