Has there ever been a Glinda on Broadway that wasn't a blonde?

She could wear a wig.

i reckon she will, the blonde kinda fits the characterisation and the image of glinda in the film(W.O.OZ). although if they decided not to that could also prove pretty interesting and something a bit diffferent.

Helen Dallimore is blonde and she is still wearing wigs.

And Annalene Beechey isn't blonde but still appears in the role with a blonde wig.  It is essential.  "For you see my roommate is... blonde."

But to answer the original question, I think all Broadway Glindas have been natural blondes so far.

Most of the actresses who have played Glinda on Broadway have not been blonde.  Neither Jennifer Laura Thompson or Megan Hilty are blondes and I think Kristin Chenoweth's hair is dyed.  

The natural or dyed hair colour of the actress doesn't matter as others have pointed out because it is all a wig - just like Elphaba.

Where did you hear that? Surely she's contracted until July so is staying until July??  dry.gif  Seems a bit unlikely that she'd quit over that.

Matthew is correct!
