This may be really old, especially for today’s telegenic mindset, but I just came across these clips of Adam performing in “Wicked” and thought that they may be new for some of you too! 🙂 We all know Adam was in different companies of Wicked as a member of the chorus, and was even the understudy for the male lead, Fiyero, in the Los Angeles cast, performed at The Pantages Theatre. But did you get to see Adam performing in that role? Some people were very lucky and got to see the glam star in the making. Wicked was Adam’s last professional job before entering American Idol. In fact, he gave up his part to proceed with Idol.
Thank you to my friend Ellen for passing the comparison video on to me. I must say all of the lead males in this piece are excellent singers! I also found a few more examples floating around the internet that allow us into his pre-Idol world. Curtain call!

As Long As You’re Mine
This next video is from Wicked Wednesdays at Universal Studios Hollywood. For 4 Wednesdays over the summer of 2007, Wicked’s Los Angeles company and Universal Studios partnered to bring Wicked fans this special event which included cast performances, a special meet and greet as well as contests and more.
Here is Adam as Fiyero and Julie Reiber as Elphaba (she was the stand-by at the time) performing the song ‘As Long As You’re Mine’
