As everyone knows the Dorothy's that don't win have a pretty good chance at getting something else in the West End after Over the Rainbow is over. I was wondering what people thought would be good roles for the Dorothy's?

My ideas so far:

Lauren - Nessarose
Amy - Sandy
Jenny- perhaps Meat? Something that shows off her powerful vocals
Jessica- either Sally Bowles or Velma Kelly


What does everyone else think? x

Jessica would make a fab Sally Bowles!! ^
I think Steph could be a Scaramouche, I think she'd suit that role, or Meat..

I was discussing this last night with a friend.

Jessica would be good in anything with comedy... Chicago, Legally Blonde, Cabaret, The Producers, Avenue Q, Fame.

Steph probably in WWRY, Rent, Wicked, Les Mis.

Lauren could do any role. (Rent, Legally Blonde, Spring Awakening, Chicago, Les Mis, Wicked, WWRY, Chess, Sound of Music, Grease, Mary Poppins, Aida, Anything Goes, Evita, etc). I just happen to think she is the best all round performer on the show, and can show vulnerability, and can do comedy. Powerhouse vocals which can also be brought down to a simple level.

Personally i can't see many of them doing Sondheim. But nobody seems to care, unfortunately. Sondheim is the best.

Possibly can see Steph as Anita in West Side Story

I think Lauren has got a great voice, I think you are being a bit ambitious with what she can do, I found her quite annoying!

I could actually see Steph in Wicked!

But I agree about Jenny in WWRY - she's definitely got the voice for it.

Jessica as Calamity Jane!

I could also see Dannielle as Rizzo in Grease if she didn't win OTR.

You quoted me in your post, but I never mentioned anything about Sondheim. Sondheim fans are very passionate from what I can tell. Only the best performers for his works? heh.

To each their own. I don't find Lauren annoying as a person or a performer. She has the potential to mould to any role, in my opinion.

I'd actually go see Jenny in WWRY, I bet she'd be awesome.

Jessica as Calam? No! Please no! hahaha. Stephanie as Calamity please!

Steph - Scaramouche
Jessica - Velma Kelly
Jenny - Grease or WWRY
Lauren could do pretty much anything
To me Danielle is the perfect dorothy
can't think of a role for stephanie or Bronte although they're both great performers
will be interesting to hear what auditions Bronte had after leaving the show.

I am also not keen on Lauren.  I will be disappointed if she wins!

Jenny would seem a natural Sandy in Grease.

Jessica could be a good Roxie Hart, imagine her doing the dummy scene with her facial expressions or maybe in the Jill Halfpenny role in Legally Blonde. Lauren could be a decent Roxy as well or as Elphera in Wicked perhaps, also Rizzo could be an option.

Steph would be good in WWRY
