Michelle Pentecost was Elphaba last night and is again tonight.

Hayley Gallivan is on holiday until Thursday so Michelle might be on for two shows tomorrow as well unless Katie goes on for one??

I really want to see Hayley as Elphie, and I kinda wanted to go on the 10th of August as it is her last day in the run of 10 days when Louise is off, so she will be really wanting to make the most of it, but that is the same date as heather Headley's last show in the bodyguard, And it seems that her last performance would be the performance she would actually do as she misses most of the others!

It certainly would. When I saw her as Nessa in February I thought she would make a great Elphaba, it would be awesome if she had a chance to go on.

Is Louise ill again?

I too really want to see Hayley. :)

Heather was on tonight! She was off last weekend as she flew back for a friend's funeral.
I would like to see Katie just once as Elphie. She has a good voice, and her acting would suit the role IMHO

To all you Wicked fans wanting a London cast recording, I've been on a mission the past couple of months to reproduce one as I believe the brilliant London 2011 cast should have had one made!

Please check out my youtube channel (under Lou Lee) for several tracks that have been edited and remastered to produce the nearest thing possible to a studio recording.

I have been really enjoying these, thank you so much!! I highly reccomend everyone goes and listens to them :)

I saw Michelle as 'Elphie' for the first time on Monday and thought she was good. Not one of my favourite portrayals, but she gave a solid performance. My first time seeing the current cast too, so it was interesting!

I totally agree, I have just discovered Lou Lee youtube channel. Its about time they made a London cast recording. The Broadway version is just too High school musical for me! Thank you Lou Lee for your hard work in producing these brilliant recordings featuring the London 2011 cast. Can't recommend these highly enough!
