Leading Australian theatre producer John Frost is ‘thrillified’ to announce that the role of Glinda in the 2015 Brisbane and Perth seasons of the Broadway musical will be played by Suzie Mathers, taking over from Lucy Durack who is leaving at the end of the Sydney season for her next “thrillifying” role … as a mother.
As an original ensemble member of WICKED in 2008, Suzie took over the role of Glinda in 2011, performing in Singapore, South Korea, New Zealand and Manila to much critical acclaim. Most recently Suzie has been living in London, where she appeared in a new musical production of Jaberwocky at the St James Theatre, and in Hello Jerry! with the RTE Concert Orchestra in Dublin.
John Frost said, “I am thrilled that Suzie could return from London to play Glinda in this 10th Anniversary tour. Suzie was a knockout in this role internationally, and I know Australian audiences will be delighted to see her acclaimed performance. She will perform at selected performances towards the end of the Sydney run, then resume the role for the Brisbane and Perth seasons.”
