Meet WICKED's Incoming Broadway Leads - Rachel Tucker & Jonah Platt!

As BroadwayWorld reported yesterday, beginning Tuesday, September 15, West End alumna Rachel Tucker will join the Broadway company of Wicked in the role of Elphaba, alongside Jonah Platt, who will be making his Broadway debut in the role of Fiyero. In honor of the pair joining the New York company, BWW brings you a look back some of their past performances below!

Tucker's Wicked resume includes nearly three years and over 1,000 performances, which grants her the record for most consecutive performances as Elphaba in London's West End production. She made her Broadway debut last season as Meg Dawson in Sting's The Last Ship.

Tucker has just finished playing Poopay in Communicating Doors at the Menier Chocolate Factory in London. Prior to that production she made her Broadway debut as Meg Dawson in Sting's musical, The Last Ship.

Rachel made her West End debut as Meat in Ben Elton and Queen's musical We Will Rock You. Prior to that, Rachel took part in the BBC's "I'd Do Anything," where she reached the semi-final stages for the role of Nancy in Cameron Mackintosh's production of Oliver!. This led to a developmental workshop of Andrew Lloyd Webber's Love Never Dies, where she played the role of Meg Giry at the Sydmonton Festival.

Other UK credits include Mary in Tonight's The Night (Phil McIntyre), Sally Simpson in The Who's Tommy (Bill Kenwright), Estelle in The Full Monty and Ida in Farragut North (Southwark Playhouse). Rachel was part of the Belfast Lyric Theatre's repertory company playing roles such as Dorothy in the Royal Shakespeare Company's adaptation of The Wizard of Oz, Kelly in Merry Christmas Betty Ford by Connor Mitchell (TMA Award nomination for both), and Grace Power in the Northern Irish political farce To Be Sure.

Rachel can be heard on the original cast album of The Last Ship and recently released her debut solo album, The Reason, on Bighand Recordings. She received her training at the Royal Academy of Music.

JONAH PLATT's credits include Hair at the Hollywood Bowl, Floyd Collins at La Mirada, the LA revival of Bare, Machinima's Assassins' Creed: The Musical, Yahoo's "Sketchy," and For The Record: Dear John Hughes at DBA. As a writer, Jonah has worked on Cartoon Network's "Annoying Orange," NBC's "Parks and Recreation," and Fox's "Family Guy." Jonah is currently writing a musical adaptation of Lois Lowry's best-seller, The Giver, with Andrew Resnick.

Jonah has performed at Carnegie Hall; Philadelphia's Trocadero, Palestra, and Wells Fargo Center; and LA's Catalina Jazz Club, Roxy, Whisky A-Go-Go, and Troubadour. He has sung with Fall Out Boy, Jeff Goldblum and the Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and Megan Mullally. He has also created arrangements for the acclaimed University of Pennsylvania a cappella group, Off the Beat, and The Album Project: Jagged Little Pill. He's produced several a cappella albums, winning multiple CARA awards for each. Jonah is also the founder/director of One Night Stand: An Improvised Musical.

They join a cast which currently includes Kara Lindsay as Glinda, Michele Lee as Madame Morrible,Fred Applegate as The Wizard, Robin De Jesús as Boq, Arielle Jacobs as Nessarose, and Timothy Britten Parker as Dr. Dillamond.
