She went on to understudy and perform the lead roles of Millie Dillmount and Miss Dorothy in Broadway’s Thoroughly Modern Millie. She has also been on National Broadway tours such as Sunset Boulevard as Mary and South Pacific as the Nellie Forbush understudy. Regional Credits include Marta in Company, staring with acclaimed and award winning actress Donna Mckechnie, Maggie in Chorus Line, Lizzie in Baby and, most recently, Polly in Crazy for You.
Julie Reiber thrilled theatre audiences as Elphaba, Broadway’s most iconic leading lady of the new millennium. She first performed the role with the original Los Angeles cast of Wicked and later played the famous green girl on the stage of the Gershwin Theatre on Broadway. Currently Ms. Reiber stars as Marion in Priscilla Queen of the Desert at the iconic Palace Theatre. She has also been seen on Broadway as Brooklyn in Bklyn, Natalie/Ed in All Shook Up and working along side Harry Connick Jr. in Michael Mayer’s revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever.
