Theater Gone Wrong: Adam Lambert Takes a Spill in Wicked

Who knew playing Fiyero took so much dexterity.

American Idol finalist Adam Lambert has never made his way to Broadway, but he's still a veteran of one of musical theater's biggest hits. Before becoming a household name while a contestant on the eighth season of American Idol in 2009, Lambert spent the better part of the mid-2000s understudying the role of Fiyero in Wicked on tour and in Los Angeles. In this episode of Theater Gone Wrong, Lambert recalls one night when he was flying high as the show's male lead — that is until he lost his grip.
