Donna Vivino (former Elphaba – 1st Ntl. Tour; former s/b Elphaba – 1st Ntl. Tour) will be joining the Broadway company of “Wicked” on August 23, 2011 as the standby for Elphaba. She replaces Jennifer DiNoia (s/b Elphaba – Broadway; former former s/b Elphaba, ensemble, u/s Elphaba, u/s Nessarose – Chicago), who has served as standby since February 2008. She confirmed this on her public twitter last night.
