Ryan McCartan

You may know Ryan McCartan best for his role as Diggie in Disney Channel’s Liv and Maddie. Or perhaps you follow his work in musicals like Heathers and the latest Rocky Horror Picture Show. Then of course, there’s his incredible music, which we can’t get enough of. But now, the performer is making his Broadway stage debut in the iconic musical Wicked!

Starting on September 11, 2018, Ryan will be taking over the role of Fiyero from the role’s current actor, Curt Hansen. Um, how amazing is he going to be singing “As Long As You’re Mine,” to packed audiences every night!?

Ryan is certainly joining a famous production with this new role! The musical first opened in 2003 — and is celebrating its 15th anniversary this year. Since its debut, Wicked has been performed in over 100 cities around the world, delighting audiences with the untold tale behind The Wizard of Oz. Not only are we excited to see Ryan’s own interpretation of the role, but there will also be an unexpected Disney Channel reunion going on in the cast!

If you recall our recent reporting, Jessie actor Kevin Chamberlin is currently starring as the Wizard in this production of Wicked. Of course, the seasoned Broadway actor made sure to adorably welcome Ryan to the family on social media.

Even more reasons to catch the legendary musical if you haven’t already, or justify a trip back to the New York City stages!

If you go, you can catch Wicked at the Gershwin Theater, located at 222 W 51st St, New York, NY 10019. Tickets are available at the box office, or online via Ticketmaster.
