Is it True…?: Kendra Kassebaum to Depart San Francisco Production in June

According to this article, Kendra Kassebaum (Glinda – San Francisco, Broadway, 1st National Tour) will be departing the San Francisco production of “Wicked” in June. This is in conflict with earlier reports from within the cast that she will be with the show until its closing on September 5, 2010. We will continue to research and keep you updated.

It should be noted that this source is not generally considered to be entirely reliable, however; as it is a media outlet we feel oblgated to report it.

    If she does leave, I somehow feel that she might finally be done with Wicked for good, after all these years.

  2. justme says:

    Kendra will be in LA in July for the “Leap of Faith” out of town tryout.

    while i see that Helene & Marcie are indeed confirmed to replace Kendra & Eden, WHERE un the name of oz is the news that the show is closing in SF in September coming from??? i’ve done google searches for the answer and NOTHING has come up regarding that it’s closing

  4. Isaac says:

    Helene is not confirmed. The new re: closing came directly from a theatre employee who heard from David Stone. The date may still change but that is the current plan.

  5. Marie says:

    I have heard from someone that the show is indeed closing in September. I assume they don’t tell the public this because it might ruin ticket sales. If you notice, they only release new block’s a few months at a time.

  6. Nik says:

    I was told directly by Kendra back in December that the show would be closing September 2010. She was supposed to remain with the show through the end of the run but “Leap of Faith” has been fast tracked for the out of town tryout for late Fall 2010 and an opening on Broadway in early Spring 2011

    Is Becky Gulsvig or Kate Rockwell play Glinda.

  8. Isaac says:

    Not that we know of.
