Following starring roles in London and a triumphant run as Elphaba in Wicked the Musical, Rachel Tucker returns with an encore of her hit cabaret show, which transferred to New York after two sell-out London runs and a UK Tour. In March 2020, as the New York shutdown took effect, Rachel had just started a run as Captain Beverly Bass in the Broadway production of Come From Away, returning to the role she had played in the West End for over a year and which had earned her an Olivier nomination.
Rachel reprised her role as Elphaba in London's West End, as part of the show's West End 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 was the recipient of the Best Female Replacement Award at the 2016 Broadway.com Audience Awards for playing the role on Broadway in 2016. Rachel made her Broadway debut in late 2014 in Sting's musical The Last Ship, creating the role of Meg Dawson, to rave reviews.
Rachel Tucker: Live at Feinstein's/54 Below was directed by Guy Retallack, who directed both of Rachel's previously successful one-woman shows in London, and was brought to you by Fane Productions.
Rachel was joined at this performance by special guest Kara Lindsay, who was her co-star in Wicked on Broadway.

This show was part of Ms. Salonga's record-breaking run of 15 sold out performances in the spring of 2017!
Salonga is a Tony, Olivier, Drama Desk, and Outer Critics Circle Award winner for originating the role of Kim in Miss Saigon. She has also starred on Broadway in Once on this Island, Allegiance, Les Misérables and Flower Drum Song.
