Pentecost previously understudied Elphaba in the musical which runs at the Apollo Victoria Theatre. She left Wicked in 2013 and prior to last night hadn't played the role for three years.

Pentecost went on due to the indisposition of Emma Hatton, Natalie Andreou, Natalie McQueen and Laura Emmitt. She performed alongside Savannah Stevenson as Glinda.
