Willemijn Verkaik will return to West End's Wicked!

Verkaik as Elphaba
Willemijn Verkaik will once again find herself soaring 20 feet above the West End Stage belting out Musical Theatre's most famous empowerment anthem.  On January 30, 2017, Verkaik will return to the role of Elphaba at the Apollo Victoria Theatre in London's West End.  She previously played Elphaba in London in 2013-14, but her run was cut short due to injury.  Before her initial West End run, Verkaik played the role on Broadway, in Oberhausen and in the Netherlands, and originated the role in the German production.  She can be heard on German Wicked cast recording.
