Well Kerry Ellis managed a Broadway transfer, Rachel is better than her (although its close!!) so there is no doubt that Rachel could be a fantastic Broadway Elphie!!

It hasn't no, but I really wouldn't put anything past Wicked lol. Haha, no it's because I am not paying for the tickets so I'd feel bad if it turned out not to be then! I've come to terms with the fact Rachel is leaving for a good few months now luckily.
Well, , all the best seats have gone for 27th, so you get one soon!

Just. I believe she missed close to half her performances, granted Rachel evidently has much better vocal stamina but I'd at least hope she took a break before doing it as her voice has sounded tired for over a year now.

This is why I don't believe these 'broadway' rumours are true. She's an amazing Elphaba, but I'd imagine the Broadway show would want to go for a more reliable performer. Maybe after a year or so, but I still don't see it happening.

Interesting...most of the times I've seen Rachel have been in the last year and I wouldn't say her voice seemed tired at all. When I saw her 2 weeks ago her voice was the best I'd heard it in the 2 and a half years. Saying that, I agree  if she did transfer then a break would be needed! I don't think Kerry had long enough at all which was reflected in her run.
