He's obviously so pumped about this incredible role and who can blame him?
Days like this remind me that I have the most supportive people in the world rooting for me. I couldn’t be happier, and I can’t WAIT to play this role 😈💙— Ryan McCartan (@ryanmccartan) August 30, 2018
Ryan is forever known for his role as Diggie on the beloved Disney Channel series Liv and Maddie and while he was on the show, he was still pursuing musical projects. He played the leading role of J.D. in Heathers: The Musical in both the Los Angeles original off-Broadway versions and starred in musical TV movie, The Rocky Horror Picture Show: Let's Do the Time Warp Again. Music has always been a passion of Ryan's, and he's been releasing solo music for quite some time now. Before that, he was one half of the duo, The Girl and the Dreamcatcher, the band he formed with his former fiancé Dove Cameron. So yeah, finally making it to Broadway in one of the biggest shows ever is a major accomplishment!
Wicked tells the story of what happened between one time friends Elphaba, the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good Witch – before Dorothy ever came to Oz. Ryan's character Fiyero is a prince who happens to fall in love with Elphaba. It's going to be exciting to see him take on this legendary role! He recently hinted at this big news on Twitter, letting his fans know he's now in New York City and had Broadway on his mind.
