Emily Behny (Nessarose – 2nd Natl. Tour) and Teal Wicks (former Elphaba – Broadway, San Francisco, Los Angeles; former s/b Elphaba – Los Angeles) have been cast in the new folk rock musical THE CIRCUS IN WINTER, featuring a book by Hunter Foster and Beth Turcotte, beginning October 23 at Goodspeed’s Norma Terris Theatre in Chester, Connecticut. Performances will continue through November 16.
Ms. Behny will play the role of Irene and Ms. Wicks will play the role of Jennie Dixiana. In THE CIRCUS IN WINTER, according to Goodspeed, “legend and lore collide under the big top. Love, lust, betrayal, and tragedy unfold in a series of interwoven stories that reveal the private lives of a death-defying acrobat, sideshow African queen, lonely circus owner, disheveled clowns, and more. With a rootsy, folk rock score, this is one musical that you must not miss!”
