and
a Full Ensemble.
Alexandra Billings who was playing the role of the mischievous “Madame Morrible” (being the first transgender actress to play the role) will be continuing with the production. However, she will return beginning September 28th, 2021.
At the time from September 14th-26th, 2021, the role of “Madame Morrible” will be played by longtime cast member Kathy Fitzgerald (last seen in Charlie and the Chocolate Factory).
