Casting news

WICKED has announced that Miss Saigon star Alistair Brammer will play Fiyero at London’s Apollo Victoria Theatre from Monday, July 22, 2019.

David Witts will play his final performances as Fiyero on Saturday, July 20. Further casting will be announced in due course.

Alistair Brammer made his Broadway debut in 2017 as ‘Chris’ in Cameron Mackintosh’s revival of Alain Boublil and Claude-Michel Schönberg’s Miss Saigon, and his professional West End debut as ‘Marius’ in Boublil and Schönberg’s Les Misérables in 2009.

His other West End roles include ‘Billy Narracott’ in War Horse, directed by Marianne Elliot and Tom Morris, and ‘Chris’ in the award-winning London revival of Miss Saigon (for which he was nominated ‘Best Actor in a Musical’ at the 2015 WhatsOnStage Awards).

In October 2010, Brammer played ‘Jean Prouvaire’ in the 25th Anniversary Concert of Les Misérables at The O2 and, in September 2014, he played ‘Chris’ in the 25th Anniversary Gala performance of Miss Saigon at London’s Prince Edward Theatre.

Brammer’s television and film appearances include ‘Jack Diamond’ in 18 episodes of Casualty (BBC), ‘Jean Prouvaire’ in Les Misérables (Working Title), directed by Tom Hooper, and ‘Freddy’ in the forthcoming Medieval with Ben Foster and Michael Caine.

Michael McCabe, Executive Producer (UK) of Wicked said: “We are delighted to welcome Alistair Brammer back to the West End following his great success on Broadway as ‘Chris’ in Miss Saigon and we very much look forward to him joining the new cast of Wicked which will lead us into our fourteenth year in the West End.”

Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked is currently booking at the Apollo Victoria Theatre until May 23, 2020. Read more.
