Dress Circle, the London show-biz shop, is currently selling Ellis' "Wicked in Rock." The three-track disc includes two Wicked songs ("Defying Gravity" and "I'm Not That Girl") as well as "No One But You."
Produced by Brian May, the single CD features a 60-piece orchestra with Taylor Hawkins on drums and May on guitar.
After playing Elphaba in the West End production of Wicked, Kerry Ellis began performances in that role on Broadway June 17. She will return to the London company in December. Ellis portrayed Fantine in Les Misérables at the Queen's Theatre and Ellen in the national tour of Miss Saigon. She created the role of Meat in the London cast of We Will Rock You and has also been seen in productions of My Fair Lady and Merrily We Roll Along.
The recording is priced £8. Visit www.dresscircle.co.uk for more information.
The new CD, on the Duck label, is also available on iTunes and is for sale at The Gershwin Theatre in Manhattan.
