The Los Angeles production of Wicked plays its final performance at the Pantages Theatre Jan. 11. When it closes, the production of the hit Stephen Schwartz-Winnie Holzman musical will have played 791 performances and 12 previews.
The musical currently features Eden Espinosa as the green-faced Elphaba and Megan Hilty as the curly locked Glinda with Carol Kane as Madame Morrible, David Garrison as The Wizard, Derrick Williams as Fiyero, Tom Flynn as Dr. Dillamond, Eddy Rioseco as Boq and Briana Yacavone as Nessarose.
Wicked began previews in California Feb. 10, 2007, and officially opened Feb. 21. The original cast included Espinosa as Elphaba and Hilty as Glinda. Since opening the production has grossed over $90 million.
I was sad we didn't get back to see it one last time before it left.
