The Ongoing Wicked Discussion Thread

I'd give it to Rachael Wooding as some have said, would LOVE to see her in that role. She's a complete powerhouse (I think I read somewhere that she may have auditioned for it before, too). Sabrina Aloueche got down to the last two for tour Elphie with Nikki Davis-Jones so she'll be in the producers' thoughts as well I'm sure.

I definitely think she's capable of singing the part... but I personally wouldn't want to see her get it any time soon. She's way too young. Maybe in 5-6 years time!

having said that i wonder why they won't use any of the covers they've already got without having to get ashley in? is there no second cover elphie?
Anyway I haven't posted here in ages. I saw the new cast's first, my first time seeing the show since Alexia/Diannes' last. Can't comment much as it was a bit like seeing the show for the first time again after so many years (was also in nosebleed seats!), and I don't remember much specifically. Loved Willemijn and Savannah though - both top notch singers and actresses in their respective roles. Also enjoyed seeing Katie back as Nessa.
I don't keep up with the show much anymore but I'm guessing Willemijn and/or Savannah, as well as a few others, will be leaving at the same time and intend on seeing their lasts. They're exceptional performers who deserve a big send off (especially if this is Willemijn's last last).
