Stephen Schwartz fans around the country (and those of the witches of the classic film "The Wizard of Oz") have reason to rejoice. The hit new Broadway musical Wicked will tour.
David Stone, one of the producers of the Schwartz musical, confirmed to Playbill On-Line Dec. 8 that there are now plans for a national tour. "We are definitely planning a tour. It will go out in spring 2005, around March," said Stone. "We don't know where we're starting yet. We're figuring that out right now." Casting has yet to begin, but Stone did confirm that Joe Mantello will direct the production, as he did on Broadway at the Gershwin Theatre.
