Equity is much more relaxed these days so a switch isnt essential, plus brits have gone to broadway (bertie in matilda now).

Sabrina could be auditioning for london

Saw Wicked last night after managing to get amazing student seats! Louise, despite being ill over the past few days, seems to have recovered well and performed fantastically. It's the first time I've seen her, as last time I saw Hayley and Gina. I couldn't pick a favourite out of Louise and Hayley- they are both soooo unique in their own ways.

Lucy was on and it was the first time I've seen her too. She was actually very impressive! Her comic timing was spot on, getting great responses from the audience, and she added some little 'extras' which added to the comedy, such as in 'Popular'. Her voice was also to die for!

The rest of the cast, as usual, were breathtaking! Jacqueline was on as Morrible...so I'm really not sure what's up with Louise P as I haven't heard about her performing for quite a while now. Sam and Katie, in particular, gave wonderful performances!

Can't wait to see it again for my 10th time now...although I don't think that will be for a while seeing as I've seen both mains and standbys after just 2 shows- pretty lucky! :D
