Sheryl Lee Ralph as Madame Morrible in "Wicked" on Broadway

One of the original "Dreamgirls," Sheryl Lee Ralph returns to Broadway. This is very exciting for theater goers and many welcome her return.  Actress Sheryl Lee Ralph who was Tony-nominated for her performance as Deena Jones in the original company of the award-winning musical Dreamgirls, will join the cast of the hit Broadway musical "WICKED" opening tonight.

Beginning November 1, 2016, Sheryl Lee Ralph will step into the role of Madame Morrible. She succeeds Tony winner Judy Kaye, who will played her final performance October 30. Ralph will enjoy a six month residency in the role.

Ralph returned to Broadway in 2002, originating the role of Muzzy Van Hossmere in the Tony-winning musical Thoroughly Modern Millie. On television, she starred as Dee on "Moesha," Claudette on Ray Donovan and Maggie on "Instant Mom." Her film credits include "To Sleep with Anger," for which she won an Independent Spirit Award. Most recently, Ralph wrapped filming "Step Sisters" and "Villa Capri," opposite Morgan Freeman.

The Broadway cast currently includes Jennifer DiNoia as Elphaba, Carrie St. Louis as Glinda, Michael Campayno as Fiyero, Peter Scolari as The Wizard, Dawn E. Cantwell as Nessarose, Michael Genet as Dr. Dillamond and Zachary Noah Piser as Boq.

"The surprising tale of an unlikely friendship between two women in the Land of Oz," Wicked, according to press notes, "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 other's lives for good has made Wicked one of the world's most popular musicals."
