ON Monday, January 20, 2020, Nicholas McLean (pictured right) will take over the role of Boq in the hit musical Wicked, which is currently booking at the Apollo Victoria Theatre until May 23, 2020.

McLean is currently playing ‘Gary Coleman’ in the UK Tour of Avenue Q. He trained at Mountview Academy of Theatre Arts and made his West End debut in The Book of Mormon.

From Monday, November 11, 2019 to Saturday, January 18, 2020, George Ure will return to play Boq, a role he previously played to great acclaim in the West End and on the original UK & Ireland Tour.

Based on the acclaimed, best-selling novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked imagines an ingenious backstory and future possibilities to the lives of L. Frank Baum’s beloved characters from The Wonderful Wizard of Oz and reveals the decisions and events that shape the destinies of two unlikely University friends on their journey to becoming Glinda The Good and the Wicked Witch of the West.

Wicked currently stars Nikki Bentley (as Elphaba), Helen Woolf (Glinda), Alistair Brammer (Fiyero), Kim Ismay (Madame Morrible), Andy Hockley (The Wizard), Simeon Truby (Doctor Dillamond), Natasha Ferguson* (Nessarose), Idriss Kargbo (Boq), Laura Pick (Standby for Elphaba) and Lisa-Anne Wood (Standby for Glinda).
