haven't they got to say no though?
couldnt they just not say anything? I wish she'd got tour too but seems unlikely to me that she would definitively say she hasnt if she has...:(

LOL, I was so wrong. She will really do Elphaba in West End. I´m just confused, cause she said we will be able to see another side of her soon.

Sabrina's tweet GUTTED !! I've never cried when i haven't got "the job"! But I've beamed with euphoria when i have! No tears being shed-someones dream has come true!

What a dignified tweet, regardless of whether she hasn't got the tour or not.  I can still hope she'll be Elphaba someday, there's no-one I can think of who I'd want to see in the role more.

Willemijn's West End debut and her FIFTH company of Wicked, in her third language. There's nothing this woman cant do. :)


She's played the role in five companies, but you say there is "nothing this woman can't do"? Yet she's been doing the SAME thing for years, lol.


I might be tempted to go and see her if she's as good as people say...

Oh no - hugely disappointed by that choice. I so much hoped for a fresh and new Elphaba.

Still hoping to get a new tour Elphie though.
