Wicked New Cast

First Look: New Stars of Wicked

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle.  Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”

Lindsay Pearce joined the Wicked cast as Elphaba on February 25, 2020. Pearce first gained international recognition when she achieved second place on the television reality series The Glee Project. Among her competitive songs on the program was the Stephen Schwartz number “Defying Gravity.” This is her Broadway debut. Sam Gravitte has rejoined the Wicked cast as Fiyero, after making his Broadway debut in the show last year, joining the ensemble for two months. Alexandra Billings, star of the critically acclaimed TV series Transparent, joined the cast of Wicked on January 20 in the role of the cunning Madame Morrible. Notably, Billings is the first transgender actress to step into this role.
