laugh.gif It's because she can't handle the vocals of it.  She doesn't want to end up Idina with her voice ruined.

personally i think 1) its very wrong to market to the public that kerry is doing all shows when she isnt, there should be some official notice, like with evita 2) im not sure if she should have taken on the role if she cant handle it- many others cope with a 8 perf a week schedule!

i do kind of agree, however most of the joe public seeing it wont know/or probably care who plays Elphaba as long as they are good. Many wont know who Kerry ellis is. She does look stunning in the adverts for the show at the moment.

Well elphaben, I personally think

1) You shouldn't take someone on here's word as truth and launch into a tirade based on that
2) You shouldn't go passing judgement on Kerry Ellis without knowing the full story. If you were a performer and were told, for example, that you had to ease yourself back into performing to ensure you get fully better, do you think you would say 'No, actually, I'm going to risk ruining my voice/health so I can do all 8 shows - must make sure I keep those superfans happy'? I doubt it.

Kerry is excellent, as are her understudies. They wouldn't have got the job they did if they weren't. If you're that bothered about what the 'stage door' say - why not phone up the theatre direct and ask what performances kerry is doing, then you'll know for sure and you can stop moaning about it.

I have read that she is now on 7 shows a week and will most likely be up to 8 in the next couple of weeks.  No idea if that is correct though.
