"A greatly fun book on how one actress learned to become, briefly, Elphaba Thropp."
-Gregory Maguire, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West
"Unnaturally Green is a great read for those who are fans of not just Wicked, but theater as well -- and are curious to know what life is like on and off stage. Felicia's memoir is full of humor and laugh out loud funny moments...and rich memories."
-Marie Vera, Marie Loves Books
"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.""[Felicia Ricci] is funny, self-deprecating, and feels like the kind of girl I'd like to hang out with...I laughed, I rooted for her, I looked her up on YouTube; I was thoroughly engaged with this young woman from beginning to end."
-As Usual, I Need More Bookshelves
From the Author
Hello! I wrote Unnaturally Green
because I wanted to give you all an up-close look at what it's *really* like to perform in mega-theater (when you have pretty much no idea what you're doing). As I became assimilated into Wicked
(my first-ever big professional gig) there was so much never-before-shared information I wanted to record -- both procedural (how you learn quick changes, where you live when you're out of town, how often you can pee during a show) -- and personal (what kinds of emotions course through you as you perform? what's it like being away from home?). I've done my best in this little-memoir-that-could, Unnaturally Green,
in which I discuss the nuts-and-bolts of the professional theater process, all manner of bodily functions, my abundant armpit sweat, and what it's like to date someone really, really muscular. Hope you like it!
