Broadway triple threat Nick Adams recently joined the first North American tour of Wicked as Fiyero, the handsome and charismatic student who comes between Elphaba and Glinda, the wonderful witches of Oz.

The out actor most notably starred on Broadway as Adam/Felicia, a feisty drag queen, in Priscilla Queen of the Desert after honing his drag skills as a Cagelle in La Cage aux Folles. His other Broadway credits include A Chorus LineChicago, The Pirate Queen, and Guys and Dolls.

Adams told Broadway.com that his boyfriend, ensemble member Kyle Brown, is also his understudy in the Wicked touring company.

Stephen Schwartz and Winnie Holzman's musical, a hit on Broadway since 2003, is based on out novelist Gregory Maguire's Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West, a revisionist twist on L. Frank Baum's novel The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

Wicked's first North American tour, dubbed the "Emerald City Tour," plays the Orpheum Theater in Omaha, Neb., through May 25. For tickets and more information visit the official Wicked website.
