There’s a new couple that’s “perfect together” on the national tour of Wicked. Alli Mauzey and Andy Kelso will join the first national tour of the hit musical as Glinda and Fiyero, respectively, on February 24 in Tempe, Arizona.
Mauzey is no stranger to the role, having played the "popular" part in both the Broadway and San Francisco productions. Mauzey has also bowed on Broadway as Lenora in the musical Cry-Baby and as Brenda in the Tony-winning hit Hairspray, as well as the show’s first national tour.
Kelso, who will be taking the stage as the dashing Fiyero, made his Broadway debut in Mamma Mia! as Sky. He has been in regional productions of Rent (Mark) as well as Fiddler on the Roof and Footloose.
Mauzey and Kelso join a cast that includes Mamie Parris as Elphaba, Mark Jacoby as the Wizard, Liz McCartney as Madame Morrible and Emily Ferranti as Nessarose.
A vivid reimagining of the classic The Wizard of Oz, Wicked spotlights the untold stories of Oz’s most famous characters: the Wicked Witch of the West and her unlikely friend, Glinda the Good. The show follows the tale of green-skinned Elphaba through the life-changing events that eventually label her “wicked.” Fun for the whole family, Wicked is a tale about love, friendship and trust that reveals that there are two sides to every story. The Grammy-winning score by Stephen Schwartz features the songs “The Wizard and I,” “Popular” and “Defying Gravity.”
