After two sell-out one-woman shows, Rachel Tucker is back with her first intimate solo show for three shows only in March. Following a triumphant run as Elphaba in Wicked the Musical on Broadway, for which she was the recipient of the Best Female Replacement Award at the 2016 Broadway.com Audience Awards, Rachel is currently reprising her role as Elphaba in London’s West End, as part of Wicked’s special 10th Anniversary cast, having also previously played the role to great acclaim in London for 3 years, where she holds the title of longest consecutive running Elphaba and won the 2011 WhatsOnStage award for Best Takeover in a Role.
Rachel made her Broadway debut in late 2014 in Sting’s musical The Last Ship, creating the role of Meg Dawson, to rave reviews.
In 2015, Rachel performed her one-woman show Back From Broadway, which won the 2015 West End Wilma Award for Best Cabaret. Rachel’s debut solo album The Reason was launched in her first sell-out concert at the St. James Theatre in August 2013.
