Eden Returns to Wicked!  

The Wicked Witch of the West has flown off on her broomstick, but a new Wicked Witch is heading in for a landing at the Orpheum Theatre, where the musical "Wicked" has just passed its one-year anniversary as a Best of Broadway presentation.

Beginning March 2, the role of Elphaba (that's the green one) will be played by Eden Espinosa, who replaces Teal Wicks. Espinosa has played Elphaba previously in San Francisco, as well as in Los Angeles and on Broadway. Her other credits include the title role in a revival of the Liza Minnelli vehicle "Flora the Red Menace" in Los Angeles, Maureen in the closing company of "Rent!" on Broadway and the lead role in "Brooklyn the Musical."

Espinosa will play opposite Kendra Kassebaum as Glinda the Good Witch.

To date, according to Best of Broadway, the San Francisco production of "Wicked" has been seen by almost 1 million people. The New York production recently shattered its own record to become the highest-grossing show in Broadway history.

For ticket information for the San Francisco "Wicked," call (415) 512-7770 or go to wickedthemusical.com/sf.
