Based on the bestselling 1995 novel by Gregory Maguire, WICKED is the winner of over 100 international major awards, including a Grammy® and three Tony®Awards. The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz, WICKED tells the untold story of the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good, long before Dorothy drops in. Elphaba, born with emerald green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood. Glinda is beautiful, ambitious and very popular. The remarkable odyssey of how these unexpected friends changed each others lives for good has made WICKED one of the world’s most popular musicals.
Emily Koch comes directly from the Broadway company of WICKED, where she was the Elphaba Standby.
Other credits include Little Women at Palo
Alto TheatreWorks, VaulueVille and Housewarming at the New York Musical Theatre
