Rachel Tucker (current Elphaba – West End) will be singing Defying Gravity next Saturday, 3rd July, at Pride London. She will be performing at approximately 3.00pm on the main stage in Trafalgar Square. The event is, of course, completely free! More information about the event can be found here.
She will therefore not be performing at the Wicked matinee on this day; Nikki Davis Jones (London standby) will be performing as Elphaba in her place. Ms Tucker will, however, be returning for the evening show on that day.
Rachel Tucker (current Elphaba – West End) will be representing “Wicked” at West End Live this Saturday, performing a song from the show (probably The Wizard and I, although this is not confirmed). West End Live is a free yearly theatre event, occurring outdoors in Leicester Square from 11:00AM until 6:00PM on Saturday 19th June, and from 12pm until 6pm on Sunday 20th June. The vast majority of West End shows participate every year, and the full line up can be seen on the official website here.
It has been confirmed that Ms. Tucker will be performing at 11:30AM on the Saturday. The event is entirely free; however, as there are generally long queues to get in, it would be advisable to arrive early! Ms. Tucker will still be performing at the “Wicked” matinee that day as scheduled.
