Christine Dwyer will join the Broadway company of Wicked on November 19th as the standby for Elphaba, replacing Carla Stickler, who is currently serving as temporary standby for the role. Christine Dwyer joined Wicked's 2nd National Tour in 2010. She began as an ensemble member, understudying Elphaba. In early 2011, she became the standby for Elphaba, and I got to see her go on in Pittsburgh in September 2011. In April 2012, she replaced Anne Brummel as the principal Elphaba on the 2nd National Tour, playing the role into April 2013. Congratulations Christine!
