Amanda Harrison and Lucy Durack in Wicked

There is mystery concerning the future of Amanda Harrison in the hit musical Wicked, with Broadway star Jennifer DiNoia coming into the show from this week.

Jemma Rix has stepped up the number of performances she is doing each week following Harrison’s apparent departure from the musical.

A spokesperson could not confirm when Harrison would return to the show, which is currently doing good business at the Capitol Theatre.

Harrison, one of the major stars of Australian musical theatre, has played the role of Elphaba since Wicked premiered at the Regent Theatre in Melbourne last year.

It is understood Zoe Gertz is also performing Elphaba at various stages through any given week.
