Emma deserves no criticism for her handling of what happened with the SOM. Her contract was bought out when ALW apparently thought no-one wanted to go on the nights she was there! If we had been told what nights that would be, then people would have booked to see her. I for one was waiting to find out before I booked. Connie was determined also to do all 8 performances and initially was very disparaging about Emma, calling her "my understudy" when she was never that - always an alternate! Emma's withdrawal was, and continues to be, very dignified despite continuous pressure to "tell all".
As far as Model Girl goes, I wasn't that impressed with the show, but Emma was outstanding. Maybe I would have enjoyed it more if I had returned later in it's run! However, I'm looking forward to seeing what this outstanding actress does next!
The best of times is now,
Now, not some forgotten yesterday.
Now, tomorrow is too far away
