Saw Willemijn Verkaik on Broadway last night. Definitely the best Elphaba I have ever seen. Stephen Schwartz was in the audience and seemed to approve. Would love her to come to London, but don't see it happening.

Oh the understudy for Morrible we had last night isnt listed at all in the programme... I attempted to look for her name in the programme again and again and I cant find it anywhere. Is there a chance this Morrible is understudying in prep for the tour perhaps?

The Morrible understudy was also on on Tuesday and at my visit before in mid march, so Louise P seems to be missing quite some shows. Is she ill?

Tania Muthurin was the old Morrible U/S but left a few months ago. Melissa Jacques is the new Morrible U/S (and Michelle Francis joined the cast at the same time)...but they haven't bothered re-printing the programmes with them in. Some people have had inserts with their biographies on as well as U/S slips but obviously they've stopped those too!

See, the understudy I had is on the website but not in the programme, which is strange... Shes not even listed as an understudy or swing. Oh ive just worked it out, Tania Mathurin has left the production as Ensemble/understudy Morrible so i assume this woman has taken over from her.

My programme from last week is updated with Melissa Jaques, you must have been unlucky and got one of the older programmes in stock.
