West Coasters, look for Kim Zimmer (Echo, ONE LIFE TO LIVE) to soon come to a city near you! The actress has signed on to the touring company of the hit Broadway musical Wicked, which tells the story of the witches of Oz long before Dorothy blew in on a tornado! Zimmer will soon embark on an 8-month road trip playing Madame Morrible, the headmistress of Shiz University's Cage Hall, where a young Glinda and Elphaba (who will one day become the Wicked Witch of the West) are roommates.
"My costumes for Wicked are soo incredible!" tweeted Zimmer. "Can't wait to put Morrible together!"
Some of Zimmer's show dates include Las Vegas from August 29 through October 7, then San Francisco in January-February 2013, and Costa Mesa, CA, in March. Tickets are currently on sale for the Vegas shows. To purchase, and for more information about the touring company dates and cities, visit www.wickedthemusical.com.
