On a casting front, I'd like the leading ladies to be unknowns. Melena has to be Idina Menzel, and I'd like Kristin Chenoweth to drop Galinda off at Shiz. They'd be great touches. I think Helen Mirren could do Morrible justice, and I think Jim Broadbent would make a great Wizard. Fiyero could be played by Zak Efron, and Nessa by Sam Banks (if anything, to please this board!). I'd like Kerry Ellis to have a cameo too as she's done it on Broadway and West End, but I can't think of a part other than a random Shiz teacher.
Kerry as the Midwife, maybe?
I like the idea of former cast members having cameos and unknowns as the two leads. I mean, I could picture Amy Adams as G(a)linda, but it'd be really nice to have real theatre performers with experience in playing those parts.
