It was officialy announced on Sunday that Pippa Grandison is finishing her contract with the Australian Production of WICKED by the end of this month.
Jemma Rix will continue as Elphaba in that production but will now share the role with Patrice Tipoki as from May 25th.
Patrice started as the Elphaba understudy in Melbourne and she left the show to happily have a baby. Now she returns to her green character to win the stage once again!
I was lucky enough to personally see Patrice (she was my first Elphaba) and I can guarantee you she is awesomely amazing!
Welcome back Patrice!
