WICKED TOUR CAST PRAISE

First Tour Cast

Dee Roscioli previously played the role of Elphaba on Broadway, in Chicago and on tour. She holds the distinction of having played Elphaba in more performances than any other actress.

From a review:

Wicked is a fantastic show, so if you have never seen it (you’re behind!), treat yourself while it visits our city. But if you have seen it already – perhaps in one of the three previous times it has visited our city – you might be wondering why you would want to see the same show again. Well, two reasons: Alli Mauzey and Mamie Parris. They revitalized the show for us, providing new insights and connections to material that we thought we had seen enough of. Wicked review - Denver, CO, May 2012

Second Tour Cast

Brummel is an original member of the Second North American tour and has spent the past year as the Elphaba standby. She's toured the U.S. and Canada with Cats, Scarlet Pimpernel, Funny Girl and Evita where she stood by for the role of Eva Peron. Regional productions include Fiddler on the Roof, Civil War, Big, and several more productions of Evita.

From Toledo Free Press Wicked review, April 8, 2010- comments about Natalie Daradich: "In the first act, Daradich successfully fools the audience into thinking that Glinda is the "dumb blonde" stereotype. Daradich rouses laughter from the audience... In the Second Act, Daradich shows Glinda's inner turmoil by switching from giving a happy-go-lucky smile to the public and sneaking in a frown when they are not looking, or she is alone...."

From Toledo Free Press about Chris Peluso: "Chris Peluso's agile dancing and suave singing makes the audience share Elphaba and Glinda's infatuation with Fiyero.:

From Nashville Scene review, 2009-09-10: Without strong principals, Wicked wouldn't fly. No problem here. When Marcie Dodd's Elphaba soars above the stage astride her broom singing the Act 1 closer "Defying Gravity," you know you're not in Kansas anymore. That's just one of her 12 musical numbers, and she also gives an affecting, sensitively nuanced acting performance. Helene Yorke as Glinda is her equal. In fact, Yorke may have the toughest task: re-creating a role originated by Kristin Chenoweth, whose distinctive vocals are featured on the Broadway cast album. But Yorke's portrayal is canny (and not overly cutesy), and she delivers her songs with vibrant skill and her own personal stamp. "Popular," with its clever internal rhyme schemes, is her signature piece. 

From a July 2009, Tulsa OK review: The cast of this second national touring production is as magical as the story itself, from Colin Donnell's appealing and well-sung Fiyero to Tom McGowan's (Kenny on "Frasier") Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Marilyn Caskey creates an imposing and dramatic turn as Madame Morrible (headmistress at Shiz and later the wizard's press secretary).

March 13, 2009: Ft. Meyers Florida review. "...This company is blessed with two actresses who can summon the powerful emotions and vocal stamina necessary to make "Wicked" work — HelÚne York as Glinda and Marcie Dodd as Elphaba. They create a convincing emotional arc from early loathing to BFF sisterhood to romantic rivalry.

Petite blond York is like a living doll with a bubbly voice and energy. Her singing is pristine and supple even as she delivers the show's many comic high points.

York may get the most laughs, but Dodd has the better vocal showcase, belting out songs such as "The Wizard and I," the show-stopping "Defying Gravity" and "No Good Deed." When she sings her disappointment at being "Not That Girl" — the kind who wins the boy — she taps into genuine emotions."

WICKED Creative Team: Joe Mantello directs the tour organized by David Stone Productions. Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman have been involved with casting and with any small adjustments that need to be made to the script and score as the new cast enters. The multimillion dollar Broadway set was recreated in a more streamlined form to make it tourable.
