Thank you so much! There ya go, anon :)
Yes, Derek is still performing in Wicked. It hasn’t officially been announced when he plans to depart, but I imagine it will be soon since previews for his new show begin next month. When his final performance date as Fiyero is announced, I’ll be sure to post it here :)
The pair will play Michael and Carolyn Johnson, the children of Francesca (Kelli O’Hara) and Bud Johnson (Hunter Foster). Klena will return to Broadway after his recent appearance as Fiyero in Wicked. Kinnunen, will reprise the role of Carolyn, which she originated at Williamstown Theatre Festival this past summer.
Congrats to Derek! More information will be posted as it becomes available.
Derek Klena and the cast of Glory Days sing an original rendition of Bridge Over Troubled Water at the Pasadena Playhouse on 4-4-11.
Last show of the week and the REAL witches of the Gershwin are ready to do this!!!
From what I’ve seen during interviews and whatnot, I think he enjoyed it very much. He seemed excited about reviving the show and I believe he did a great job playing Tommy :)
