Louise's highlights from her third show (Oct 31st) have been posted on Youtube. She sounds less sick than she was on her opening night, still I can't picture her as Elphaba ... she's got more like a classical/opera type of voice. I had the same feeling when Alfie Boe was playing Valjean at Les Mis. Don't get me wrong though, she's a fantastic singer!

As for last Saturday night ... fantastic show. Rachel Tucker will be missed for sure, she sounded so effortless (even apparently sick), and what an atmosphere ! Loved every minute of it ! I thought the speech was very moving too and very sincere, you could tell it came from the heart.

Can you post link please? THANK YOU

I just listened those audios from yesterday, agree that there are big improvements especially in her TWAI. But also agree that her voice just doesn't sit right for 'my' Elphaba. She has a kind of pop / lounge singer vibe to her voice in lots of places. Which is not to say there's anything wrong with that - I hear similar in Kerry Ellis's voice and many of the other highly regarded Elphabas I've YouTubed - it's just not to my taste. Basically I just don't think I'll ever get over Rachel and especially that amazing last night! At least there's always YouTube...

Edit: TWAI link

There's a difference between moving on and 'getting over it' - people are allowed to see Louise but still view Rachel (or any past Elphaba) as their favourite. I know people who still say Kerry is "their" Elphaba!

Saw the show last night. Anyone else noticed that some of the lighting has changed? Have frequently seen the show in the months leading up to cast change, and last night the lights were definitely different. They seem to have updated some of the projections from Broadway, and Defying Gravity now has a green tint right at the very end. Also lights during DG are much bluer than they used to be.

Or is this just me!?
