Is she an exciting and slightly edgy Elphaba (ala Alexia) or a safe traditional Elphaba (ala Rachel Tucker)?

You can watch her on YouTube, maybe that will help. I think she is really nerdy and awkward (in the beginning).

Maybe the announced it early to avoid the gossip websites getting hold of the information and they wanted it to be a surprise, remember what happened with Louise?

And performers should NOT moan about people they know not getting jobs. That's the business they've entered and that's that. They should suck it up.

Well looks fairly certain it is Nikki Davis Jones as Elphaba - how typical of Wicked to go back to old cast !.

If Nikki is tour Elphaba, I'm actually really excited. I only saw Nikki once and loved her performance so I'm glad I'll get to see her again. :)

Same but I don't think we will get any announcements until mid July when they go into reharsals. How long will rehearsals be? About a month? 6 weeks?

I'd gladly be proved wrong though. :P

Mid July?? Thats well over a month after they announced Willemijn...isnt that a bit insulting to the Glinda whoever she is (if Gina's leaving)?

Not really, its not unusual (for any show, including Wicked) to announce one cast member first then others later.  Dripfeeding isnt anything new.  I dont get how people think this could be insulting

Well Glinda is supposed to be an equally main part and to announce it a month after Elphaba seems to me...I dont know maybe insulting isnt the right word! Although I guess I dont even know maybe they'll announce Glinda and then the rest of the cast even later.
