Burns again plays the green-skinned Elphaba with Lindsay as her popular roommate Glinda. The two actors are scheduled to continue with the tour in Los Angeles and Salt Lake City.
Burns and Lindsay are joined by Michael Wartella, who returns to Oz as Boq—a role he has played both on Broadway and in the national tour. The current cast also includes Jason Graae as The Wizard, Jody Gelb as Madame Morrible, Mili Diaz as Nessarose, Jon Robert Hall as Fiyero, and Chad Jennings as Doctor Dillamond.
Burns, who is Broadway’s longest-running Elphaba, also starred in the national tour of If/Then. Lindsay previously performed the role of Glinda in the Broadway company and national tour. She has also appeared on Broadway in Newsies and Beautiful. Their return to the Wicked national tour coincides with the musical’s 15th anniversary on Broadway, which was recently celebrated by NBC with A Very Wicked Halloween.
