Maren Morris Called Back After ‘Wicked’ Broadway Audition

On Thursday (811), country musician Maren Morris took to social media to confirm that she’s one step closer to appearing in Wicked on Broadway

To make the already magical moment even sweeter, the “Circles Around This Town” singer got a vote of confidence from original Wicked star Kristin Chenoweth, who replied, “You go baby!! Told ya you could do it!!! xoxooxo.” Morris’ adorable reaction to having the OG Glinda in her corner? “Stop my heart is going to explode.”

Explaining a bit more about her Broadway audition in a video on her Instagram Stories the superstar singer/songwriter stated “I literally don’t care — yes, I do! — if I go beyond this callback because this is like, 14-year-old Maren getting to achieve something that, like, was never in reach.” “It just never felt possible. So, thank you for being on this journey with me. We’ll see where it goes. I’m just really happy! I love Wicked! I love Elphaba! I love Kristin Chenoweth! Thank you, Kristin, for inspiring me to buck up and just send a self tape in.”

Revealing that she first auditioned in May, she tweeted, “Gonna send an audition tape in for Wicked on Broadway. What the hell. Let’s see what happens.” And updating the situation during Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, Morris said “All I’ve heard is that they’re not quite casting yet, but they have my tape,” before clarifying that her audition was for the Broadway production rather than the big-screen adaptation starring Ariana Grande and Cynthia Erivo.

Maren is prepping a tour in support of her latest album Humble Quest, and in 2022 she’s set to perform at the female-led Girls Just Wanna Weekend destination concert at the Hard Rock Hotel in Riviera Maya, Mexico.
