Alyssa Fox will take over the role of Elphaba in the Broadway blockbuster WICKED at Broadway’s Gershwin Theatre (222 West 51st Street) beginning Tuesday, March 7th.
A Dallas, TX native, ALYSSA FOX is fulfilling a huge dream after being a member of the WICKED family for over 13 years. She was last seen as the standby for Elphaba on Broadway, after playing the role on the National Tour, and as the understudy in the San Francisco company. Alyssa was also the Elsa standby in the original cast of Disney’s Frozen on Broadway.
Alyssa joins a cast which will include McKenzie Kurtz as Glinda, Tony Award-winner Cleavant Derricks as The Wizard, Tony Award-winner Michele Pawk as Madame Morrible, James D. Gish as Fiyero, Tony Award-nominee Clifton Davis as Doctor Dillamond, Mikayla Renfrow as Nessarose, and Michael Wartella as Boq. Talia Suskauer will play her final performance as Elphaba on Sunday, March 5.
