I assumed, but no idea to be honest: I avoid using mics.
If I stay awake, it must be good.

New cast for the WE has been announced:

http://www.whatsonst...n-ve_31165.html

Savannah Stevenson (Glinda)
Jeremy Taylor (Fiyero)
Sue Kelvin (Madame Morrible)
Paul Clarkson (Doctor Dillamond).
Sam Kelly (The Wizard)
Emma Hatton (Standby Elphaba)
Sophie Linder-Lee (Standby Glinda)

staying:
Katie Rowley Jones (Nessarose)
Sam Lupton (Boq)

Quite a major cast change then. Disappointed that Hayley leaves again after her first year. Never would have thought thay Katie stayed on for another year though.

I don't know what I think about Sam Kelly returning.
America recycles Elphaba's and Glinda's, the UK recycles Wizards... I wasn't that impressed with him back in 09.

Finally, a Glinda that no one has previously mentioned...thought that would never happen.

Actually most (if not all of the list) seem like a 'didn't see that coming' moment.

Looking forward to seeing them in November.
