Random, but 'Willemijn and Savannah' is the coolest sounding Elphaba/Glinda duo ever.

A question a friend asked me today and I wasn't sure how to go about it. They want to get a programme signed for a friends birthday, is there a way to send something to the company/manager to see if they would be willing? My friend would of course pay for the programme.

Longer than Sarah Earnshaw?!  She was an understudy in the original London cast, then bumped up to standby and only left in January 2011 (with a brief return a couple of weeks later!), so 4 and a half years really...

Jennifer was the standby Elphaba in the Chicago production (2007), standby Elphaba in Sydney, standby Broadway Elphaba on and off between 2009 and 2012, and started playing Elphaba (main cast) in the second national tour in April 2013. :)

She'd been doing an event in Trafalgar Square earlier on, it obviously pushed her into overtime so was given the nod by the company manager ;)

That was humour before the Wicked Wendies attack.
