Back in Manchester, they were selling a small programme with the usual bio's, and a larger souvenir brochure with the glossy pictures. They've now changed it to a combined programme similar to the one in London (and are selling it for 8€).
The Bord Gais Theatre is huge. Sat in the Stalls and couldn't see any empty seats. Was quite fun to have an audience who mostly hasn't seen the show before and who's thus reacting at scenes which usually don't get that much reaction in London.
Volume was still too low, especially the voices were sometimes drowned by the orchestra.
When Elphaba casts her spell to rescue the lion cub from the new 'teacher', two of the students are flying through the air - looked pretty cool. I'm sure that's not included in London and pretty sure it wasn't done in Manchester.
Had the first cast and they were OK; nothing to complain about, but also nothing really special. Dale Ripley improved a lot since I saw him in Manchester, and actually I prefer his Wizard to Sam Kelly's. Nikki was good again, but she seemed not to give 100%.
However, I do prefer the (new) London cast.
Anyway, to quote Arnie and Annie: I'll be back, Tomorrow,
