Is It True…?: Wicked West End Casting

There are quite a few rumors circulating as to the casting of the West End Production of “Wicked” – set to change on 29th March 2010. The rumors (and nothing more – most of this is just heresy):

– All principal cast are set to leave, as well as Ashleigh Grey (Elphaba s/b).
– Sarah Earnshaw (Glinda s/b) will be staying through.
– Most ensemble will be leaving.
– Rachel Tucker will be Elphaba & Louise Dearman will be Glinda (this is VERY strongly rumored).

Let me know (iwevans@bellsouth.net) if you hear anything else plausible! Remember, all of this information is purely RUMOR, hence the “Is It True…?” title.

    More West End rumours – George Ure being promoted to lead Boq. He definitely auditioned for it but last I heard he hadn't heard if he'd got it. They'd be mad not to promote him though, he's brilliant…

    Also, Stevie Tate-Bauer appears to be coming back (she was a temporary ensemble member/Nessa understudy a few months ago) as cover Elphaba – don't know if that means understudy or standby, but it definitely seems true as it's on her Spotlight page.
