Katie Rose Clarke (former Glinda – Broadway, 1st Ntl. Tour)

“She has to grow up… You really get to play with the idea of someone who [goes] from not understanding what matters and life to having the most important people in her life taken away from her. That makes her grow up and understand what’s truly important. She’s so strong because of her experience, and she is a public figure who has to negotiate her feelings in the public eye. It’s an exciting journey to portray.”

make me choose: Alli Mauzey’s Glinda or Katie Rose Clarke’s Glinda?

Glinda is a person who undergoes so much change, and in my view of her, she comes from a place where she has to appear perfect and be perfect and be the center of attention. There’s a pressure on Glinda to be a certain way, and as she grows up and we track her journey throughout the show, she sees that there are certain parts of life and of the world that aren’t perfect that shape her into becoming the woman that she is by the end of the show.

Katie Rose Clarke is participating in readings for a new musical titled Breaking Through as part of Hothouse, a new play development program at The Pasadena Playhouse.
