As far as im aware georgie was on as Margot tonight, so either carly or gemma were on as elle, hope that helps!

Yeah, just saw Georgie's twitter. I wasn't at the show - but I'm guessing it was Gemma then.

Saw the show last night with Gemma on as Elle and she was excellent  - I really liked her portrayl.  I like Carly too, but as I said was very impressed by Gemma and hope to catch her on as Elle in the next few months.  

A few other understudies on last night too, all of whom were excellent, I don't have the sheet in front of me, but as I remember Ross Hunter  was on for Warner, Jane for Brooke, Sorelle Marsh for Paullette and Tara Young for Serena.   Jane seemed to be very busy!

I've seen the show a few times now but have to say last night was one of my favourite perfrmances.  Very enthusiatic audience too

I went on Saturday afternoon and think I saw the same understudies as you. I too really liked Gemma as Elle, glad I got to see her. I also liked Sorelle as Paulette, and loved Ross as Warner - that was the main reason I went :rolleyes: Jane was very busy in this show as well, the three times I've been since cast change I've always seen her as Brooke - does Tamara not do Saturdays?

Overall, even with the swings on, they ended up being one boy and one girl down. Henry was covering both Ross and Lincoln, who was also off, so in the Harvard entrance scene there were only two professors. In the court scene, one of the girls played the journalist. It wasn't noticeable to me anywhere where they were a girl down, they still had the stenographer in the second court scene, which I've read gets cut when they're really short. It sounded like a lot of people were off sick, so everyone did very well covering for each other. I always enjoy seeing understudies for different roles, so this show was great to see.

Saw the show on Tuesday evening and was so so impressed by the understudy Paulette. What a voice. The ending of her main song was incredible when she hit the top note and then finished with an even higher note!

Rest of the show looked very sharp and in great shape. Shame about the audience who were very quiet.

News to me - can you post some of the tweets/accounts? Might provide an idea whether it's more authentic or not.

Indeed what twitters? Some of the cast  have twittered recently  that they are going on 7 April or implied that - in what looks like  a substantial cast change, so it would be new  news to them to. The site shows lots of seats already unavailable when when I looked at the end of april - that may, or may  not, be sales already made or allocations?

Rather quiet - 9.30am would certainly be enough.
