Katie Rose Clarke finished her run as Glinda at the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway last night. She has returned to the role several times, but this tweet seems to indicate that this may have been her final engagement with the show. You never know of course! Katie appeared in the 1st National Touring company of the show from November 2007-August 2009, and then joined the Broadway company in 2010, where she played the role until September 2011. She returned to the National Tour in November 2011, and played the role through February 2012. This most recent Broadway engagement began in April. I have seen Katie as Glinda three times, and she is so wonderful in the role, one of my favorites. She has excellent comedic timing, a gorgeous voice, and a wonderful bubbly personality that fills the stage whenever she is on it, and I look forward to whatever is next for her! :) Best Witches Katie, whatever may come next! :)My heart is so full tonight. I appreciate all the warmth and well wishes at the close this chapter. Thanks everyone! pic.twitter.com/YjtiVzDSNV
