Carmen Cusack - Headshot

Carmen Cusack

Carmen Cusack (former Elphaba – 1st National Tour; former s/b Elphaba – Chicago) has had extensive theatre careers in both the United States and in England. In the United States, in addition to her past experiences in “Wicked”, she is currently portraying Nellie Forbush in “South Pacific”, and in the past, she has portrayed some roles at a regional theatre in Houston, Texas. In the West End, she performed as Fantine in “Les Misérables” and was the alternate for Christine in the National Tour of “Phantom of the Opera”.

Megan Sikora (former ensemble, u/s Glinda, Nessarose – Chicago, Broadway) covered the roles of Glinda & Nessarose in the Broadway production, but she was flown out to the Chicago production for several months to cover Glinda after Erin Mackey (former Glinda – Broadway, Los Angeles, Chicago; former ensemble, u/s Glinda – Chicago; former swing – 1st National Tour) was promoted and Christina DeCicco (former Glinda – 1st National Tour) ended up taking over the 1st National Tour instead of taking Mackey’s spot.

Sabrina Weckerlin (former alternate Elphaba – Stuttgart, Oberhausen) performed in the “Best of Musicals” tour prior to being in “Wicked”, playing Glinda in the section with “Defying Gravity”.
