^ i probably would too... if i actually understood it! ohmy.gif i am relatively new to the world (first time late 2008) of wicked so am ignorant to the fandom that went before me.
While i disagree with condoning people for changing their favourites, but if this is a recurring thing for people when a new actress is brought in well, that's a little silly!!

lol agreed! I only saw it for the first time earlier this year so whilst I know there is a history of fandom I don't really understand it all, or really want to. I'm quite happy just enjoying being a fan of the show.

Sadly I'm biased and was out the door with Ellis, on both occasions she left. But I do admit it. I'm also an Oli fan and the Sabrina show was the first time I'd been back since cast change!
With Wicked there will always be this insane fanbase, and I do love it but I won't sleep in Victoria for a show. There will always be the Wicked fans who are OTT, and there are the Wicked fans who pretend the aren't OTT but spend all day on a forum discussing the show AND the other fans.Personally, I know who does more damage!

That's why they created WitchesOfOz - to keep them all in one place. Seriously though, some of the stuff they say scares me. They're like real life Chris Crockers.

So now WitchesofOz, NOBY AND K-E.net are getting targeted? Great stuff.

It's sad that being a Wicked fan is considered to be a terrible thing. There are some people who are a bit obsessive, yes. I, for one, see the show more than the average fan but I think we've distinguished in this thread there's no real harm in that unless you act like a fanbrat. And by that I mean disrespecting the audience and the cast.

Yeah I have normally got really good seats in the front block but the last 2/3 times I have been I've been offered literally back of stalls and back of circle top price block! I must go in and just ask for a top price ticket then produce my student card!

Seems like cheering for Alexia when shes going up in defying gravity works just like it did with Kerry Ellis. She popped out riffs on "western sky" and "from me" that i've never heard before.
