Alli Mauzey returns to the role of Glinda in the long-running hit Broadway musical Oct. 16 at the Gershwin Theatre. Wicked
Mauzey played the role of Glinda on Broadway in 2009 and returns to the Gershwin directly from the musical's national tour. She succeeds
Chandra Lee Schwartz, who played her final performance Oct. 14.
The Broadway company also features
Jackie Burns as Elphaba, Kyle Dean Massey as Fiyero, Randy Danson as Madame Morrible, Adam Grupper as The Wizard, Jenny Fellner as Nessarose, F. Michael Haynie as Boq and Tom Flynn as Dr. Dillamond.
Gregory Maguire's novel, which turned every Oz myth inside out, Wicked explores the early life of the witches of Oz: Glinda and Elphaba. The two main characters meet at Shiz, a school where both hope to take up sorcery. Glinda is madly popular and Elphaba is, well, green. By a misunderstanding, they wind up roommates and, after an initial period of mutual loathing, begin to learn something about each other. Their life paths continue to intersect through a shared love, entry into the Emerald City and interaction with the Wizard himself. Eventually, their choices and convictions take them on widely different journeys.
Wicked features a score by Schwartz, a book by Holzman, direction by Joe Mantello and musical staging by Wayne Cilento. The creative team also includes scenic design by Eugene Lee, costume design by Susan Hilferty, lighting design by Kenneth Posner, sound design by Tony Meola, projections by Elaine J. McCarthy, wig and hair design by Tom Watson, music supervision and arrangements by Stephen Oremus, orchestrations by William David Brohn and dance arrangements by James Lynn Abbott.
