McKenzie Kurtz to Play Glinda in Wicked, Brittney Johnson Sets Final Show

McKenzie Kurtz is heading to Oz! Previously appearing as Anna in Frozen on Broadway, Kurtz will take on the role of Glinda in Wicked on Broadway beginning February 14, 2023. Current Glinda Brittney Johnson will play her final performance at the Gershwin Theatre on February 12, 2023.

Kurtz joins a cast that includes Talia Suskauer as Elphaba, Tony Award-winner Cleavant Derricks as The Wizard, Tony Award-winner Michele Pawk as Madame Morrible, James D. Gish as Fiyero, Tony Award-nominee Clifton Davis as Doctor Dillamond, Mikayla Renfrow as Nessarose, and Michael Wartella as Boq.

Wicked, the Broadway sensation, looks at what happened in the Land of Oz…but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin—smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships…until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.” With a thrilling score that includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good,” Wicked has been hailed by The New York Times as “the defining musical of the decade.” Time Magazine cheers, “if every musical had the brain, the heart, and the courage of Wicked, Broadway really would be a magical place.”
