Inside the Emerald City: Wicked's Headmistress Madame Morrible
03 Oct 2013
Emmy Award-winning veteran character actress Carol Kane made her musical debut in the 2005 touring production of Wicked and currently repeats her performance in the Broadway production at the Gershwin Theatre. She will play Morrible when the show celebrates its 10th anniversary Oct. 30. An Academy Award nominee for "Hester Street," Kane is well known for her roles on "Taxi" and in such films as "The Princess Bride," "Scrooged" and "Annie Hall."
Holed up in a seedy motel on the edge of the Mojave Desert, two former lovers unpack the deep secrets and dark desires of their tangled relationship, passionately tearing each other apart. Led by director Daniel Aukin (Back Back Back at MTC, 4,000 Miles), Tony winner Nina Arianda (Venus in Fur at MTC, Born Yesterday) and Sam Rockwell (A Behanding in Spokane, The Way Way Back) bring an explosive intensity to Sam Shepard’s (Buried Child, True West) landmark myth of the new Wild West.
