Okay, so we all know a lotta Elphies: Idina Menzel, the witch-triarch of Oz-way; Teal Wicks, the TWickiest witch of them all; Eden Espinosa, the truly amazing belter, and the list goes on… But right now I’m here to talk - blog - about Marcie Dodd. Because she is somewhat of a Wicked Legend in her own right. Take a looksies here…
Marcie is only 33, a new mom, accomplished actress, AND her Wicked deeds include this:
- starring in 5/6 Wicked North American companies (Broadway, 1NT, 2NT, LA, & SF)
- starring as (the principal) Elphaba in 3 of those companies (B’way, 2NT, SF)
- starring as (the principal) Nessarose in 1 company (LA)
- in the 1NT, being ensemble/Elphaba u/s/Nessarose u/s
- in the LA company, starring as Nessarose/Elphaba u/s AND THEN Elphaba s/b/Nessarose u/s
- being the first and only actress to play BOTH the principal Nessa and Elphie
- being a lead role/supporting role/standby/understudy/ensemble…she’s played them all!
Ah, Marcie Dodd Madness… Not to mention she’s really sweet too!
