Mandy Gonzalez and Katie Rose Clarke, who star as Elphaba and Glinda, respectively, in Broadway's Wicked, posed with Brett LaTorre, who was the production's 5 millionth audience member to have his ticket scanned in at the Gershwin Theatre, which occurred at the 2pm matinee performance on Wednesday, September 29.

LaTorre was celebrating his 21st birthday at the performance with his girlfriend and grandparents. As a prize, he was given a special "Key to the Emerald City" as well as a free trip to London to see the West End production of Wicked and complimentary hotel accommodations at the 4-star luxury hotel, Rubens at the Palace.

Based on Gregory Maguire's novel of the same name, Wicked tells the untold story of the witches of Oz, and how they grew to become the Wicked Witch of the West and Glinda the Good. The musical features a score by Stephen Schwartz and a book by Winnie Holzman. The production is directed by Joe Mantello, with musical staging by Wayne Cilento.

The cast also currently stars Kathy Fitzgerald as Madame Morrible, P.J. Benjamin as The Wizard, Andy Karl as Fiyero, Alex Brightman as Boq, Jenny Fellner as Nessarose, and Timothy Britten Parker as Dr. Dillamond.
