Hey guys! I posted these on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram but I thought I would make a post on the actual website as well! A friend sent me some pictures of Rachel Tucker and Jonah Platt's new pictures outside the Gershwin Theatre as well as the updated cast list! I also decided to include a picture of Ben Platt with his brother's photo because it's too cute not to post!
I have heard nothing but rave reviews for these two, I have not seen this kind of excitement for a Wicked cast change in a long time. Rachel Tucker was a hit in England and that enthusiasm has followed her and grown across the pond. I hear she was in top form, added some sweet riffs and embellishments and was a fantastic actress. I have heard equally glowing things about Jonah, for whom Wicked is his Broadway debut. I am going to get to see these two in action this Winter and I could not be more excited.
I also thought I'd include screenshots of some of my favorite tweets from yesterday from former co-stars and Elphies alike! Among them are Lee Mead (Rachels' former Fiyero), Louise Dearman (former Elphaba AND Glinda, and Rachel's former co-star), Willemijin Verkaik and Emma Hatton. Love the support and love between cast members!
And then there's this. Way too cute.
