Omg Louise look amazing as Elphaba !


Wow she really does, I don't think I'll have as much trouble separating her from Glinda now!

Actually really reminds me of Rachel as well, which is no bad thing!

I saw this on Twitter, I didn't put it together so no credit to me!

I said yes to it then revoked the authorisation as soon as I'd viewed the picture.  Go to settings --> apps and it lets you do that :)

ETA: is it just the light, or is Louise being an almost ginger Elphaba?!

Think it's just the light. There will be some lines said tomorrow night when it'll be very hard not to laugh !

She looks great as Elphaba! I didn't like her Glinda at all as I thought her voice wasn't quite right and would suit Elphaba much better. I'm very much looking forward to seeing her at some point in the future.

I feel so lucky to have been at the show last night. What an unforgetable night. Such an electric atmosphere. I seriously don't have words for what the show was like (my emotions are everywhere) but it was a perfect send off for the leaving cast members, and you could feel the love for Rachel as soon as the lights went down.

Stagedoor was insane too!

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!


Yes, they could've at least come to the front for a few seconds - considering what a big part they've both played in the show for so long (almost 3 years for Nikki!). Oh well.
