San Francisco Wicked to Close in September

Sadly, it was finally announced that the San Francisco production of Wicked will play its final performance at the Orpheum Theatre on September 5th.

After having played 660 performances and 12 previews, producer David Stone said, “Seven years ago, the first Wicked company came to San Francisco to develop this show and present the world premiere prior to Broadway. The entire creative team immersed themselves in the show’s launch at the Curran Theatre. San Francisco embraced us then, made us feel welcome, and supported us as we did our work. We feel a special connection here in the Bay Area, and this extended engagement has allowed us to become an integral part of San Francisco. Wicked has had great success in every city it has played, but it is perhaps most gratifying to have had such a successful run in the city we call home.”

Wicked made its world premiere in San Francisco on May 28, 2003, prior to arriving on Broadway. The musical returned to San Francisco in August 2005 to play a limited six-week engagement. On Jan. 27, 2009, the show returned home to San Francisco to play this current extended Bay Area engagement.

The cast currently features Eden Espinosa as the misunderstood, green-faced witch Elphaba with Kendra Kassebaum as Glinda, Jody Gelb as Madame Morrible, Tom McGowan as the Wonderful Wizard of Oz, Nicolas Dromard as Fiyero, Paul Slade Smith as Doctor Dillamond, Deedee Magno Hall as Nessarose and Etai BenShlomo as Boq.
