Christina DeCicco is a native New Yorker, who’s blue-collar Brooklyn family surrounded her with music. She saw her first Broadway show at 3 years old, and, much to the embarrassment of her parents, sang throughout the whole production. She entertained thoughts of becoming a doctor for most of her childhood before she realized her storytelling gifts were stronger than her talents in science.
On Broadway, Christina has been seen starring as Eva Peron in the original cast of the 2012 Revival of “Evita" opposite Ricky Martin, as Arachne in U2’s "Spiderman: Turn Off the Dark," and as Sister Mary Robert (understudy) in the original cast of "Sister Act, The Musical." She has toured the country portraying the role of Glinda in the Stephen Schwartz hit “Wicked." Off Broadway, audiences have seen her as Cindy Lou Huffington in the juke box musical "The Marvelous Wonderettes."
Regionally, Christina has played such roles as Billie Dawn in "Born Yesterday" (Asolo Repertory Theatre), Maggie in "Cat on a Hot Tin Roof" (Triad Stage), Gabriella in "Boeing Boeing" (Gulfshore Playhouse), Barbara Rose in "War of the Roses" (North American Premier- Delaware Theatre Company), Mary Poppins in “Disney's Mary Poppins" (Theatre Under The Stars), Betty Schafer in "Sunset Boulevard" (Ogunquit Playhouse), and Eponine in "Les Miserables" (Walnut Street Theatre- Barrymore Award Winner), among others. She received her Bachelor of Arts from Wagner College.

She received her Bachelor of Arts from Wagner College.
“The singer to listen to is Christina DeCicco, whose nuanced vocal technique creates a wonderfully layered Glinda. She has moments of frightening perkiness in the Kristin Chenoweth mode... but she turns the twinkles on and off like a taser. Underneath is a chillingly powerful woman, and the combination is fascinating.”
-The Boston Globe
“DeCicco is the ditzy, cheerleading blonde Glinda who evokes comparison with that role’s originator, Kristin Chenoweth... DeCicco possesses a warmer voice with smoothness from top notes down into her chest register. She’s not excessively smooth, though, and retains the bitchy quality that the part needs...Philadelphia audiences have already seen DeCicco... with her natural brunette hair– so the quality of her voice is no surprise. But DeCicco’s comic persona is. She nicely manages Glinda’s transition from self-centered ambition to a mensch who cares for Elphaba.”
