Nessa’s Niblets: May 18, 2011

I apologize for being a day late.

Mandy Gonzalez (former Elphaba – Broadway) was the standby for Idina Menzel (original Elphaba – Broadway, London) in the role of Amneris in Aida on Broadway.

Ben Vereen (former Wizard- Broadway) and Gene Weygandt (former Wizard – Chicago, 1NT) switched productions for one week in 2005. Mr. Vereen temporarily joined the Chicago production and Mr. Weygandt temporarily joined the Broadway production.

Carmen Cusack (former Elphaba – 1NT; former s/b Elphaba – Chicago, Melbourne) and Jennifer Dinoia (current s/b Elphaba – Broadway; former s/b Elphaba – Chicago, Sydney; former u/s Elphaba – Chicago) were both flown to Australia at different times to be a temporary Elphaba standby.
