SUSIE BLAKE is to star as Madame Morrible in the hit musical WICKED at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre from Monday 2 April 2007.

For the past four years, Susie Blake has been playing Beverley Unwin in CORONATION STREET. Amongst her numerous other television appearances, Susie is still much-loved for her regular roles in Victoria Wood’s AS SEEN ON TV series and various specials. Some of Susie’s recent theatre work includes playing Belinda Blair in Michael Frayn’s NOISES OFF, directed by Jeremy Sams, at the National Theatre, on national tour and at the Piccadilly Theatre and the national tour of HIGH SOCIETY, directed by Ian Talbot, playing Mother Lord.

WICKED has already been seen by over a quarter of a million theatregoers in London since its first public performance on 7 September 2006, grossing over £10 million at the Box Office and twice setting new West End Box Office records for highest weekly gross.

Based on Gregory Maguire’s acclaimed novel, the spellbinding WICKED tells the incredible untold story of an extraordinary friendship between two girls: the blond and popular Glinda and the misunderstood green girl, Elphaba, whose destiny is to become the Wicked Witch of the West.

WICKED currently stars: Kerry Ellis as Elphaba, Helen Dallimore as Glinda, Adam Garcia as Fiyero, Miriam Margolyes as Madame Morrible, Nigel Planer as The Wizard, Martin Ball as Doctor Dillamond, James Gillan as Boq and Katie Rowley Jones as Nessarose.
