Broadway Glindas - Katie Rose Clarke

What are your favourite Wicked moments? [x]
"Pretty much every moment I share the stage with Carmen [Cusack]. In particular, there’s a moment in Act I when she comes to this school dance and I’ve given her this ridiculous hat to wear. It’s the moment where we become friends, and it’s magical. In the show, it’s two women who wouldn’t normally become friends (if one would judge a book by the cover). But they get to know each other and become the best of friends. Carmen is very dear and amazingly talented and, from day one, I could tell we were going to be friends. We just gelled. I love Carmen like a sister, and I think that’s the uniqueness of this show. It really highlights an important relationship between two women, a strong and dynamic relationship."

On Broadway: January 14, 2010 - March 24, 2011; April 26, 2011 - September 25, 2011; & April 23, 2013 - September 22, 2013

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.
