Kristy Cates: Check Your Playbill, feat. Shoshana Bean & more!
May 2, 2023
Kristy Cates, original Broadway (Elphaba Understudy), Tour (Elphaba fill-in) and Chicago (Elphaba… finally!) cast member of Wicked, and occasional star of Finding Neverland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, makes her 54 Below SOLO debut after being part of over 30 concerts since 54 Below opened its doors in 2012! Kristy will look back at a nearly 25-year career that has taken her all over the world – from the recording booth to Broadway stage to running a college musical theatre program….and how a series of unusual events, and saying yes, always leads her exactly where she is meant to be. With iconic songs, and a special guest or two, Kristy’s first live solo show since 2007 is not to be missed. Oh! and check your old playbills… with over 400 performances as the green girl, she just might have been your first Elphaba!
Tony Award® nominee Shoshana Bean (Mr. Saturday Night, Waitress, Wicked)

Check Your Playbill will feature direction by Gregory Treco (Hamilton, Taboo), musical direction and arrangements by Joshua Zecher-Ross (Be More Chill), and PR by Robert W. Schneider (54 Below Original Programming Producer).
Please note that all artists and acts are subject to change at any time.
Kristy Cates has a rich emotional presence, vulnerability that easily can be converted to one’s own vulnerability… and an ability to start a spinal shiver with her “Look to the Western Sky.”
