In January of 2010, a wide-eyed English grad went from peddling software in NYC to understudying the lead role in Wicked the musical -- her first professional theater gig (ever). Unnaturally Green is the humorous account of the entire journey, from her pit-stain-filled audition to the bittersweet closing night.

I've loved Wicked since I first read the book and when I discovered the musical it was even better. Felicia pulls back the curtain and gives you an inside her head, real human view to what it's like to be an Elphaba stand-by and reminds us that life is a journey even if there's no yellow brick road.

I liked the book a lot and I like Felicia and can relate to her. It was interesting to read about how she got the part of understudy in Wicked and to learn about all the backstage goings on. I would have liked her to go just a bit further in the book though, as there are many things she didn't reveal. I'm sure she must have felt some hope/anxiety when other replacement Elpheba's were brought in as the show was closing. I imagine she would have hoped she would have gotten the lead. Also, she never mentions if she ever auditioned for other roles, and if she didn't why not? The book meanders in the last few chapters because I think she wasn't entirely clear on how to end it. It's a memoir but she was probably in her late 20's when she wrote it, so she's still got some living to do! Definitely an interesting behind the scenes look at a top level stage show and from watching her youtube channel, I can tell this girl is an awesome individual!

As an aspiring actor who struggles with feeling inadequate or fraudulent, this memoir helped me feel like I can really do this acting thing haha. Fel is like your best friend, the voice in your head, and a mentor all rolled into one. This was such a fast and entertaining read. Perfect for any lover of theatre and Wicked.

On May 23, 2010 I had the absolute pleasure of seeing Felicia Ricci in the San Francisco company of Wicked. She was stunning...literally flying, both physically and vocally. What I didn't know and could not perceive was that she was very sick that day!!

I learned this from her wonderful memoir Unnaturally Green. The book gloriously takes the reader through the highs and lows of stand by work in a major production. And of course, Wicked is major...first coming to life in San Francisco, continuing on Broadway and across the country and the world.

Felicia was filling big shoes: backing up the Elphaba role played by the great Eden Espinosa. In her book she takes a behind-the-scenes' look, from quick switches to fill-in for an ailing lead mid-show, to learning to belt Wicked's challenging songs.

In the end, Felicia Ricci sells it, both on the stage and on the page. I highly recommend Unnaturally Green.

I stumbled upon Felicia's blog a few years ago and really enjoyed her personable, honest, and hilarious writing style. She has such a clear voice which translated really well to this memoir. I've been a huge fan of Wicked ever since it came out, and loved hearing behind the scenes tidbits of the audition and rehearsal process. Since Felicia came from a different background, having majored in English at Harvard as opposed to studying theater, she has an interesting and fresh perspective on the industry. Unnaturally Green was a fun, light-hearted read, and I hope her career continues so we can read even more irreverent tellings of the goings-on at broadway shows.

Green. Green narrator, green character, green story. That's it. That's the book.

Green.

Felicia would be proud. I understood her message.

In 2010, amateur musical theater actress Felicia Ricci, with no professional training whatsoever, was cast as a standby in the San Francisco company of the hit Broadway musical Wicked for the quirky, misunderstood, and yes, unnaturally green Elphaba Thropp. With a long line of frankly “unearthly” talented actresses previously sharing the role with Felicia, including the company's lead Elphaba, Eden Espinosa, Felicia had a huge title to live up to. Actresses such as Idina Menzel, who was the original Elphaba on Broadway in 2003, Stephanie J. Block, Teal Wicks, and Shoshana Bean had all set an almost impossible bar for any incoming green actress. (GREEN: not fully developed or perfected in growth or condition; unripe; not properly aged: a green actress.) Eden Espinosa especially was an almost goddess-like actress/singer to follow due to her ability to, as they say in the theater world, "belt her face." Talk about trying not to be a disappointment.

Still, Felicia had talent. All she had to do was believe in herself and try defying gravity.

A nonfiction book has never made me laugh as hard as I did reading Unnaturally Green. Not only is it jam-packed with comedy, Felicia Ricci explores a few life struggles that many readers can relate to. Of course, not many have the privilege of telling people that they were Elphaba, the one and only “Wicked Witch of the West,” on Broadway, but most know the feeling of not being good enough and the fear of failing. For those who know the musical Wicked, you're aware of how difficult playing the role of Elphaba is. Her songs are known as, "The Songs of Death," and if they're not sung correctly, the whole performance is like a live Britney Spears concert. Felicia hilariously describes her struggle to tackle "The Songs of Death" and deal with the people who tried to bring her down. A few other things that will make you an automatic fan are her hysterical descriptions of San Francisco denizens, her "Gentle Rambo" boyfriend whom she also often refers to as "Teenage Hercules," her Dating History Museum, and "greenifying" process.

Any reader, whether a Wicked fan, theater enthusiast, or not, will find every single page of Unnaturally Green laugh-out-loud funny. "Every single page" is just barely an exaggeration. Felicia's writing style is quirky, just like Elphaba, and up front, almost as if she's talking with you face-to-face like she's known you for years. One of my personal favorite quotes is, "As if by magic, the woman called Eden Espinosa was in our mortal midst. Forget the president- she was an Olympian goddess, greeting and walking among the Athenian citizens. That's right: Eden Espinosa. At board game night. Theater dorks everywhere were peeing their high-waisted tights" (Unnaturally Green pg. 140). Though some snippets may be a tad bit...personal (i.e. "The Week I Didn't Poop), even those parts will have you gasping for air and cheering for Felicia. Every chapter is a new misadventure or behind the scenes Wicked tale, and every one leading up to Felicia discovering what it means to be green.
