Strallenfan - on wednesday did you notice the massive camera flash when Ashleigh went up in the Defying Gravity?

Though if i'd had the chance to see Willemijn......perhaps then, to quote the eloquent words of the illusory Mr. Guest, i might have seen elphaba 'for the first time'.....

I didn't notice it but I was too busy watching her rise than anything else.
I love both Kerry and Ashleigh. They both bring something different to the role and I could connect well to both interpretations. I don't see a massive problem with changing 'favourites' as different people and interpretations are seen every time there is a new elphaba. Some people are very erratic I agree but then it is all down to opinion and we all have our favourites.

Same here. And it's most apposite in a thread about the fans' favourites that has now passed the 650-post mark.
