Goodbye Kim Zimmer, Jenn Gambatese and Derek Klena!

Derek Klena as Fiyero, Kim Zimmer as Madame Morrible and Jenn
Gambatese as Glinda!
Today, Wicked bids farewell to three of its principal cast members in the states.  Derek Klena will be departing the Broadway company today, playing his final performance as Fiyero.  Klena made his Broadway debut in Wicked in May after appearing Off-Broadway in Dogfight and Carrie.  He can be heard on the cast recordings of both shows.  Klena is leaving Wicked to be a part of Bridges of Madison County on Broadway.  Kim Zimmer and Jenn Gambatese depart Wicked's First National Tour today in Chicago.  Jenn joined the tour in February of this year as Glinda and Kim joined the tour in August of 2012 as Madame Morrible.  Both are stellar in their roles and will be greatly missed. 

Also leaving the First National Tour are Brandon Rubendall, Pamela Shandrow and Adam Fleming.  Best to all three!
