She’s going green—again! After leading the national tour of If/Then and performing as part of the Hair tribe, Burns reprises her role as the smart, fiery, misunderstood Elphaba for the first time since 2013. If you saw her then, you know you want to see her again. And if you didn’t catch her before, you can’t miss her flying high now!

After touring with Wicked, Cooper officially makes her Broadway debut by bubble—playing popular, blonde Glinda. She couldn’t be happier, and you couldn’t be luckier to witness her hilarious take on the good witch.

Tony Award-winning actress Reed (August: Osage County) welcomes you to Shiz University as Head Mistress Madame Morrible. She previously played the role on Broadway back in 2009, and her dramatic flair and sinister edge continue to astonish and unnerve in just the right way.

Potentially the hottest Winkie prince ever, Ashley Parker Angel (of O-Town fame), toured with Wicked as Fiyero in 2014, and now dances through life on Broadway. “As Long As Your Mine” sounds pretty steamy these days…


Kristen Martin Joan Marcus

Recently completing her stint with the Wicked tour, Martin comes back to Broadway as Nessarose—Elphaba’s younger sister. With her beautiful silver slippers, she shines as the tragically beautiful, and ultimately cruel, character.


Jye Frasca Joan Marcus

And coming all the way to Oz from down under, Jye Frasca makes his Broadway debut as Boq, the unusually tall Munchkin. He performed alongside Idina Menzel in the London production of Wicked as an ensemble member, and now returns to round out the cast with an adorable, awkward sweetness.

So whether you’re a die-hard Wicked fan, or a total Broadway newbie, you will absolutely love experiencing Wicked with these amazing, talented veterans. Don’t wait—plan your trip to Oz and get your tickets to the added August 11 matinee now at WickedTheMusical.com!
