Willemijn Verkaik to Portray Elphaba on Broadway

Actress Willemijn Verkaik (former Elphaba – Holland, Oberhausen, Stuttgart) will be taking over the role of Elphaba on Broadway on February 12, 2012. She takes over from actress Jackie Burns (Elphaba – Broadway; former Elphaba – 1st Ntl. Tour), who will have portrayed the role for nearly a year and a half on Broadway, the longest run of any one actress as Elphaba on Broadway. This will mark Ms. Verkaik’s third language in which to perform the show, having previously performed it in both German and Dutch.
