Most swankified! Robin de Jesús will perform as Boq in the national tour of the Broadway blockbuster Wicked, beginning May 2 at the Orpheum Theatre in Minneapolis. The two-time Tony Award nominee will continue in the role through June 4 when the show wraps up its engagement at Buffalo's Shea's Performing Arts Center.

On April 28, de Jesús tweeted: "Guess who's Boq, Boq again  #wicked  #tour #minneapolis #Buffalo #quickie #imbringingsexyboq." One of the stars of the films Camp and Gun Hill Road, de Jesús has received Tony nominations for his comedic featured performances in In the Heights and La Cage aux Folles. He has also starred in the Broadway productions of Rent and Wicked and regional productions of Aladdin, Godspell and Two Gentlemen of Verona.

The current touring company of Wicked also features Jessica Vosk (Elphaba), Isabel Keating (Madame Morrible), Fred Applegate (The Wizard), Harry Bouvy (Doctor Dillamond), Kristen Martin (Nessarose) and Jeremy Woodard (Fiyero).

Wicked looks at what happened in the Land of Oz...but from a different angle. Long before Dorothy arrives, there is another young woman, born with emerald-green skin, who is smart, fiery, misunderstood, and possessing an extraordinary talent. When she meets a bubbly blonde who is exceptionally popular, their initial rivalry turns into the unlikeliest of friendships...until the world decides to call one “good,” and the other one “wicked.”

Based on the novel by Gregory Maguire, Wicked has music and lyrics by Stephen Schwartz, and a book by Winnie Holzman. The show's popular score includes the hits “Defying Gravity,” “Popular” and “For Good.” Since opening on Broadway in 2003, Wicked has been performed in over 100 cities in 16 countries around the world and is the winner of over 100 international awards including the Grammy Award and three Tony Awards. Wicked has amassed nearly $4.3 billion in global sales and has been seen by over 50 million people worldwide.
