WICKED in San Fransisco

WICKED will be opening an open ended run in San Fransisco at the Orpheum Theatre. I do not have exact details on casting, but I will let you know as soon as I do.

Annaleigh Ashford to Join Chicago cast of WICKED

ANNALEIGH ASHFORD, the current blonde in the bubble in WICKED on Broadway, will be joining the Chicago company of WICKED, the First Broadway WICKED principle to transfer to the Chicago Production. Of Course, Kristy Cates did, but she went from a u/s in NYC, to a s/b in Chicago, to the role of Elphaba in Chicago... We Wish Annaleigh Luck. She Will join this Cast, replacing Current Glinda Kate Fahrner on June 3rd. (Wow! Kate has a very short run ahead of her!) But Kate is Amazing, and so is Annaleigh :)

Jeremy Schonfeld, a songwriter will be releasing a Broadway All-Star album, 37 Notebooks, on May 6th. The CD will feature Shoshana Bean (Broadway's "Wicked" National Tour of WICKED) in addition to a number of other amazing Broadway performers:

Luther Creek (of “Flight of the Conchords”)
Julie Danao-Salkin (of “Lennon”)
Jarrod Emick (Tony Award Winner for “Damn Yankees”)
Donnie Kehr (of “Jersey Boys”)
Lauren Kennedy (of “Spamalot”)
Julia Murney (of “Wicked”)
Adam Pascal (of “Rent”)
Kate Shindle (of “Legally Blonde”)
Amy Spanger (of“Kiss Me, Kate”)
Tracie Thoms (of “Rent: The Movie”)

I hope you will consider buying this CD, as I'm sure it will be great. Thanks for the Notice Natalie! Please Visit: Jeremy's Site
