Who is playing the wizard? any clues? And Harriet Thorpe is going, right?

And the point of this post is?..."ooh I know so much, but I am soooo important I can't share!"

To be honest I really didn't like Kerry Ellis as Elphie. Everyone plays the role slightly differently and although I know a lot of people liked her in the role, I much prefer Alexia. I'm not saying Kerry wasn't good, she just didn't do it for me.
Alexia has been a fantastic Elphie IMO and it's a tough act for Rachel to follow but I'm sure she'll rise to the challenge. I supported her on IDA and was convinced she was clearly the most talented contestant on the show and it seems the people who hand out the top West End roles agree with me.
Good luck to Louise as well. If anything she has an even tougher act to follow. Dianne Pilkington has been the perfect Glinda and I'm not convinced there will ever be anyone better.

Dianne is certainly a fantastic actress but I never really thought much of her singing, she seems to really struggle in places. Think Louise will be far better.

Yep, she's gonna rock it.

Of course thats just my opinion and everyone will have their own preferences. I'm sure I'll enjoy Louise's performance but for me, Dianne is Glinda and always will be.
I will be going to Dianne's final show on the 27th March and also the opening night for the new cast on Mar 29th.
