Unnaturally Green by Felicia Ricci

Unnaturally Green by Felicia Ricci is a memoir about a girl who understudied for Elphaba, one of two main witches in the musical Wicked, in San Franciso's company. Felicia's memoir captures her experiences with Wicked from her very first time seeing it on Broadway as a teenager to her audition to her experience performing four shows in one weekend for huge audiences.

This book was well written, easy to read, insightful, and hilarious. Felicia writes her memoir like she writes on her blog - like she's telling her story to a best friend - and I loved it. I love Broadway shows and learned a ton not only about the inner workings of Wicked but about the audition/show process altogether. Like did you know there's an understudy and a standby for the lead in major productions? The standby is the first person in line to perform when the main performer is out and the understudy is the backup to the standby and also performs in the ensemble. I had no idea.

I'm a lover of Wicked (I've seen it four times now) and devoured this book in about two days, eager to hear where Felicia's story would take her next. This book was overall not only fantastic but fascinating and I would recommend it to anyone who likes the theater, Broadway, and especially Wicked. An easy 5 stars. And if you don't want to take it from me, there are 44 other reviews on Amazon.com that are 5 stars as well.
