Emily Rozek

Emily Rozek (former s/b Glinda – Los Angeles; former ensemble, u/s Glinda – 1NT) & Laura Woyasz (s/b Glinda – Broadway; former s/b Glinda – Los Angeles; former ensemble, u/s Glinda – 1st Ntl. Tour) have shared several theatre credits. The two ladies both stood by for Glinda in the Los Angeles production of “Wicked”, both were in the ensemble and understudies for Glinda in the 1st National Tour of “Wicked”, and both understudied the role of Millie in professional productions of “Thoroughly Modern Millie”.

– Five ladies who played Elphaba in “Wicked” on Broadway took part in the Actors’ Fund Benefit Recording of “Hair”.  Four played Elphaba full-time: Shoshana Bean (former Elphaba – 1st Ntl. Tour, Broadway; former s/b Elphaba – Broadway); Eden Espinosa (former Elphaba – San Francisco, Los Angeles, Broadway; former s/b Elphaba – Broadway); Ana Gasteyer (former Elphaba – Broadway, Chicago), and Julia Murney (former Elphaba – Broadway, 1st Ntl. Tour). Additionally, Brandi Chavonne Massey (former ensemble, u/s Elphaba – Broadway) also took part in the benefit.

Jeremy McQueen (former ensemble – 1st Ntl. Tour) has, in addition to performing, done a good bit of choreographic work. Click here to check out his resumé.

  1. That 2nd one is incorrect. There were five women – Shoshana, Eden, Ana, Julia, and Brandi Chavonne Massey (former u/s Elphaba – Broadway).
