Heard a rumour at the show last night. Apparently Carmen Cusack has been cast as Elphaba for the UK and Ireland tour - she was allegedly very close to getting cast in June '08 when Kerry left for Broadway, and started her theatre career on the UK tour circuit in the late nineties/early noughties.
To clarify, this is just a rumour I heard from a reputable source involved with the production of Wicked. Make of it what you will!
EDIT: I also have it on good authority that this will be announced on Friday.

But perhaps they decided that they want to advertise this with a renowned Broadway star.
But let's see what Friday brings.

I was going to post exactly the same. Of course listening to some audios is nothing compared to seeing a show live, I wasn't so keen on Louise as Elphaba until I actually saw her, but like you said - she's, talented of course, but nothing special.
Anyway, it's just a rumour.

If it is true she has played it in Chicago, US tour and Melbourne and played Christine POTO, Fantine Les Mis. Can definitely see "names" now for the supporting roles. Well its no different from the way it is in West end with US actors taking lead roles in certain productions.
Maybe they will go for someone new in London. Just have to wait until there is something official said.

Would Love to see Nikki Davis-Jones, Ashleigh Gray, Sarah Earnshaw, Kerry Ellis, Louise Deaman (could you imagine if she played Elphaba and Glinda in different locations?!) and other ones come back and do a few venues.
I realise this is a bit far feached but I'd love it!
