We have heard from a compilation of reliable resources the following. It is still rumor, as it has not been officially confirmed, but the sources we have on this are very good:
– Marcie Dodd (current Elphaba – 2NT; former Elphaba – Broadway; former Nessarose, u/s Elphaba, s/b Elphaba – LA; Ensemble, u/s Elphaba, Nessarose – 1NT) will be closing out the San Francisco production in the role of Elphaba. She will begin performances on June 8.
– Vicki Noon (current Elphaba s/b – San Francisco; former Elphaba s/b – Los Angeles; Ensemble, u/s Elphaba – Chicago) will be replacing Marcie Dodd in the 2nd National Touring Company in coming months. The assumption is that she will be coming in from mid to late May to give Ms. Dodd time for rehearsals in San Francisco.
– Felicia Ricci (current Ensemble; u/s Elphaba – SF) will be taking over as standby for Elphaba in San Francisco.
