The idea of a movie for WICKED was an ongoing fantasy of many of fans like me. Now, after Universal Studios purchased the rights last year, we have the name of whom will be directing such magnificent project: Stephen Daldry, who has most notably directed The Reader, The Hours, and Billy Elliot (which he recently stage directed for Broadway).
As from today Kyle McDaniel is replacing Andy Karl as the new Fieryo for Wicked in Broadway.
Kyle McDaniel made his Broadway debut last year in the ensemble of Wicked. National tours: Wicked (multiple companies since 2005). Regional: John Truitt in Meet Me in St. Louis (Westchester Broadway Theatre), Joe Hardy in Damn Yankees (Arts Center of Coastal Carolina), Rolfe in The Sound of Music (Lyric Theatre of Oklahoma) as well as many other musicals, concerts and benefits around the country. BFA in musical theatre performance from CCM.
