Someone has already uploaded Rachel's DG and NGD on YouTube... that was quick! ha!
I'm glad I was there tonight - it was my first time seeing Rachel in a very long time, and she really put everything into her performance. Her 'No Good Deed' especially was phenomenal.
'For the last time... I feel Wicked' reminded me of Kerry's last show. I'm glad she did it too, though! Also loved her little wave to the audience before the melting scene when she leaves Glinda.
The speeches at the end could've been a bit more personal in my opinion, especially for the 2 standbys - I think they deserved a bit more recognition than they got... But overall it was good and Rachel's speech was very honest and heart-felt.
She's been an excellent 'Elphie' and although not my personal favourite, it has been nice to see her on a few occasions since she joined the show almost 3 years ago. Wish her the best of luck for the future
Still think it's amazing she continued performing in the show till the very end despite being very pregnant! Dedication.
He did talk about Nikki and Chloe more than the ensemble, but I think it would have been nice for them to come to the front row!
Just watched Rachel's speech again and it really was from the heart. I've always thought her passion for this role just shines through, and I love the story about how she promised her Mum and sister she'd play the part 1 day. And yes, to keep going when she's that pregnant was incredible!
