Wicked, which reopened on Broadway September 14, has canceled its 2 PM and 7 PM December 5 performances at the Gershwin Theatre. The 8 PM December 4 performance had been canceled due to the detection of positive COVID-19 test results combined with previously scheduled absences in the company.

The Sunday performances have been canceled out of an abundance of caution, based on previous testing results and scheduled absences, according to the musical's social media post.

All tickets will be refunded at the original point of purchase. Wicked's next scheduled performance is December 7 at 8 PM.

The cast is led by Jennifer DiNoia as Elphaba (while Lindsay Pearce recovers from an injury), Ginna Claire Mason as Glinda, Alexandra Billings as Madame Morrible, Michael McCormick as The Wizard, Sam Gravitte as Fiyero, Riley Costello as Boq, Mili Diaz as Nessarose, and Michael X.
