Gina Beck on Matilda, Les Miserables, Phantom of the Opera & Wicked
Updated: Sep 24, 2019
Gina Beck is one of musical theatre’s best known sopranos.
She played Cosette in the 21st Anniversary cast of Les Miserables, did two years as Christine in Phantom of the Opera, played Glinda in Wicked for two years in London before joining the US Tour and is now playing Miss Honey in Matilda - a part she auditioned for just six weeks after having a baby.
Gina said she was worried she wouldn’t have any fun stories to tell but, as you’ll hear, that just isn’t true.
There’s the time a wigs mistress was sent on a quest for eyelash glue for Patti LuPone and the dinner with Andrew Lloyd Webber where she was too scared to eat anything in case he asked her a question.
