Kristy Cates is currently making her Broadway debut in the ensemble of the
Broadway production of Wicked, and as understudy for the role of Elphaba.
Earlier this year, Kristy was rushed to Toronto to perform the role of
Elphaba for several weeks, when leading lady Stephanie J. Block was injured
during final rehearsals for the national tour of the hit Broadway musical.
Immediately following her performance at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre, Kristy
will head to Chicago to participate in the sit-down production of Wicked,
where she will stand-by for leading lady Ana Gasteyer. Kristy made her
Off-Broadway debut in Boobs! The Musical and also appeared in the 2005
revival of Love Letters at The Duplex Cabaret Theatre. Favorite regional
roles include jon and jen (Jen) and Into the Woods (Witch). Holding a BFA
from the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music, Kristy's earlier cabaret work in
New York includes her own solo show at Don't Tell Mama, as well as numerous
appearances with The Storefront Theatre Company at The Duplex Cabaret
Theatre. Phil Geoffrey Bond will direct the show, with Musical Direction by
