Teal Wicks, the powerhouse Elphaba in San Fransisco's WICKED is back after over a month of vocal rest, away from the role of Elphaba. Teal's Standby, Vicki Noon, has covered her for the past couple of weeks, with Merideth Kaye Clark and Dee Roscioli coming over to help out, assuming the role of standby while Vicki was on for so long. Angel Reda, I believe also performed a few times. Props to all 5 of them, Teal for coming back so wonderfully, Merideth for Leaving the tour to help out, then returning to the tour, Dee for taking her own time to come and help, Angel for coming in when needed, Vicki for beeing a trooper for the last couple of weeks, and Stephanie Torns for covering Donna Vivino while Merideth was away. You al Rock! Thanks for keeping SF strong!

Have been wondering if Dee was involved with any new stage productions of late since she was an amazing Elphaba in Chicago and would love to see her again either in Wicked or another stage work.

Any in CA who had the chance to see Dee fill in for Elphaba on the west coast were lucky indeed!

I'm still hoping Wicked will return to Chicago on a more permanent basis than a tour stop and it would be wonderful to see some of the cast return even if for a limited time. Till then will have to watch for those tour stops that come close enough.
