Julia Murney

JohnMichael Schott: Julia Murney. When I saw her in Wicked, it was my second time seeing the show, but it felt like my first time. Her performance blew me away.
@TimDeAngelis: Julia Murney would be incredible and heartbreaking as Fantine in the 2014 Les Mis revival.

Two-time Drama Desk Award nominee Julia Murney, who has been seen on Broadway in Lennon and Wicked, was a popular choice among our readers. The actress, who is no stranger to dramatic roles — playing the high-flying, conflicted witch Elphaba in Wicked and, most recently, starring as a mother of a severely autistic son in the Off-Broadway drama Falling — is a perfect choice for the role of Fantine in the Broadway revival of Les Miz.
