Flashback Friday: A New Brain's Ana Gasteyer Proved Her Wicked Vocal Chops as Elphaba

The SNL vet is putting both her comic and singing skills to work in the Encores! production.

Ana Gasteyer has had a hugely varied career, from six years on SNL to a recurring role on The Good Wife. But did you know that she even had a stint as Elphaba in Broadway's Wicked? In 2006, Gasteyer took over the role and put those Northwestern University voice classes to good use. The performer went on to appear on Broadway in The Threepenny Opera and The Royal Family, and now she's back on the New York stage (and dusting off those impressive vocal chords) with a role in the Encores! production of A New Brain.
