I did enjoy the show last night, second time seeing Rachel and first time seeing this cast, Rachel was much better than the last time I saw her (as she would be on her last) but still felt I wanted more, perhaps I went to late and all the hype had me having too high expectations. That said I did enjoy her interpretation.
There is no denying the fact that girl can sing, however would have been nice to have heard her riffs? What possesses people to scream over the best bits in beyond me... if you're excited scream at the end not during the actual note? If you were one of those douchebags please do not try and justify it, it can't be vindicated.
Highlight of her performance was that she used a few familiar riffs from other actresses that have played the role before her (not just London). I like that someone who’s a fan of the show can use things they like or have heard from others to influence their own interpretation.
On a final note about the evening dear said girl crying during the final, I could hear you from the circle, might be good to work on that. Although managed to seek attention from the volume, I just didn’t believe them.
