Nikki Davis-Jones will no longer join Wicked in London.


In a statement made by Wicked UK's Facebook page yesterday, it was announced that Nikki Davis-Jones, who is currently starring on the UK/Ireland Tour of Wicked, will no longer be joining the London company of Wicked as previously announced.  In addition, Davis-Jones will withdraw from the tour, effective immediately.  Standby for Elphaba Jemma Alexander will complete the show's run at  the Birmingham Hippodrome, and Ashleigh Gray will assume the role of Elphaba, as previously scheduled, on September 16th.

Executive Wicked UK producer Michael McCabe stated: "Nikki Davis-Jones has been an absolutely extraordinary Elphaba on the UK Tour of Wicked, earning herself rave reviews in every city we have played.  So we are all extremely sorry she has had to withdraw from the tour and will be undable to join the London cast as previously announced.  We all fully support Nikki's position and very much look forward to working with her again in the future".

A new casting announcement regarding the London production will be made shortly.

Best wishes to Nikki, who we hope to see in the green again soon, as well as to Jemma Alexander and Ashleigh Gray!
