Eden Espinosa

Eden Espinosa

– Many people who have been in “Wicked” have also performed at Disney theme parks – three we are aware of include Eden Espinosa (former Elphaba – San Francisco, Los Angeles; Broadway, 1st Ntl. Tour; former s/b Elphaba, Nessarose – Broadway); Michelle London (former Nessarose – 2nd Ntl. Tour; former ensemble, u/s Glinda, Nessarose – 2nd Ntl. Tour; former ensemble, u/s Glinda – 2nd Ntl. Tour); and Rachel Potter (former ensemble, u/s Glinda – 2nd Ntl. Tour).

Christian Hebel, husband of Tiffany Haas (Glinda – 2nd Ntl. Tour; former ensemble, u/s Glinda, Nessarose – 2nd Ntl. Tour; former swing, u/s Nessarose – Broadway) has been concertmaster of the orchestra for three Broadway productions, including “Sondheim on Sondheim”, “The Light in the Piazza”, and, of course, “Wicked”.

– Megumi Hamada, who originated the role of Elphaba in Japan and is featured on the Japanese Cast Recording, starred as Bonnie in the Japanese cast of “Bonnie and Clyde” and will be performing as Alice in the Japanese premiere of “Wonderland” this fall.

    Didn’t Stephanie J. Block play Belle for a while at one of the theme parks?

    I don’t know about Stephanie J. Block, but Marcie Dodd played Belle at Disney.

    There are probably multiple we did not cover, but I do know that both of those are correct.
