John Rubinstein to Play The Wizard in L.A. Wicked
Rubinstein joins previously announced stars Eden Espinosa (Elphaba), Megan Hilty (Glinda), and Carol Kane (Madame Morrible). In addition, Kristoffer Cusick will play Fiyero, Jenna Leigh Green will play Nessarose, Adam Wylie will play Boq, and Timothy Britten Parker will play Doctor Dillamond.
Based on Gregory Maguire's book of the same title, Wicked tells the story of how young Elphaba became the Wicked Witch of the West and shows her rivalry and eventual friendship with the beautiful Glinda. The show has a book by Winnie Holzman, a score by Stephen Schwartz, and musical staging by Wayne Cilento.
