Alistair Brammer, who starred in the 2014 West End revival of Miss Saigon (and subsequent 2017 Broadway transfer) and also the Les Miserables film, will take on the role of Fiyero in the London production of Wicked the Musical from 22 July 2019, according to the website Whats On Stage. Current Fiyero, David Witts, will leave the show on Saturday 20 July 2019.
Wicked, based on the American novel ‘Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West’ by Gregory Maguire, is not, in fact, a prequel as everyone deems. The musical, utilising the same themes and characters as The Wizard of Oz, is described by the author as ‘a re-imagining of the same world’, eclipsing the narrative of the classic Dorothy adventure to create a ‘parallel universe’.
Further casting for the West End production is to be announced.
