Ha sorry I'm on my phone and I can't find an edit button - I meant to say I hope she has a run in London at some point :P

I agree so much! Willemijn's doing very well on Broadway at the moment and though she's apparently got something planned after that that isn't Wicked, I'd love to see her lighting up the West End with her fabulous portrayal of Elphaba in the future. :)

Might do, but 3 contracts is a long time though .......
personally i'm hoping Louise won't stay on, although doubt she'll leave after only 1 year.

I think the complete opposite. I think Louise will leave at cast change. But it's just my opinion based on nothing factual. ha!

rachels decision to do three contracts may have been to do with having a baby and keeping steady work up until then

id guess louise will leave at end of contract too. gina i guessed would after two years plus they could get a complete fresh pair in. but after this weekend id suggest it may be more likely gina would go. shame as shes the best glinda londons had in my view

When Rachel & Louise started, a completely new pair, it breathed new life into the show. I'd love that to happen again.

I've seen her 5 times in Holland, and she's absolutely unreal. Even though she's done it since 2007 she brings something new to the role constantly. Fingers crossed for Willphaba in London! And for some reason I'd like to see Sierra Boggess as Glinda. Don't ask. :P

I really can't imagine Sierra as Glinda. She could sing the role perfectly - no doubt- but I can't see her delivering the funny parts.

Any thoughts about Julie Atherton as Glinda? She might be a bit old, but I'd absolutely love seeing her Glinda...

I adore Julie, but I don't think she's right... I'd love for her to have the chance to prove me wrong though!

I keep on trying to think who I'd like to see in the two female roles. But I have my dream pair and am finding it hard to think beyond that!

I'd quite like to see Willemijn with Gina, but then it'd be nice to have a totally new Glinda with a new Elphie.
