Apologies for this being a day late!

Marcie Dodd (former Elphaba – San Francisco, 2NT, Broadway; Elphaba s/b – Los Angeles; former Nessarose – Los Angeles; former u/s Elphaba & Nessraose – 1NT), Jenna Leigh Green (former Nessarose – Los Angeles, Broadway, 1NT; former u/s Elphaba – 1NT), and Caroline Keiff (former Nessarose – West End; former u/s Glinda & Nessarose – West End), all understudied leading roles while simultaneously performing the principal role of Nessarose. Ms. Dodd understudied Elphaba while performing Nessarose in Los Angeles. Ms. Green understudied Elphaba while performing Nessarose on the 1st National Tour, and Ms. Keiff understudied Glinda while performing Nessarose on the West End.

Melissa Fahn (former ensemble, u/s Glinda – Los Angeles, Broadway) appeared as “Young Ezmerelda”, a very Glinda-like character on the soap opera, PASSIONS. She appeared in a send-off inspired by the musical WICKED.

Aaron J. Albano (ensemble, u/s Boq – Broadway; former ensemble, u/s Boq – 1NT) originated the role of Chip Tolentino in the San Francisco and Boston productions of THE 25TH ANNUAL PUTNAM COUNTY SPELLING BEE. He later went on to close out the Broadway production of the show.
