Oh My!!!
Interval Update.

It's like that episode of FRIENDS where Phoebe sings with the cold and her 'sexy phlegm'...Louise is perfect tonight. Out if all the times I have seen her Elphaba, tonight is by far the best.

If she's still off the show tonight you can question whether she should have sung at the gig or not, but don't jump the gun.

I realise that now for some reason had it in my head that last night was a performance night and she called in sick to appear at Rachel's gig

Just back from the evening show and indeed it was Hayley. She was absolutely fantastic, her defying gravity was just amazing. The entire show was just stunning and i'll really miss her. Gina was so funny as usual.  Just a shame there was no speech or flowers for her !! Maybe she'll return on the evening of the 16th ?

I don't doubt that she will!

I wonder why Louise was off again though?

What do you think of the Mexican Elphaba Danna Paola? Rumor is that she was asked to join the Broadway production. I don´t find her that good, rather ordinary, but OK, not my decision ;-)

Also when people entered the theatre all bags were being checked. FINALLY they are actually doing this, the usher kept telling everyone it's because they are next to a Train Station. Erm this should have been done for years and years - not just now ! All Theatre I've been to search bags and they are not close to any train stations.

I really like her, but because she's only 18 I still don't think her voice suits act 2 Elphaba. Her Defying Gravity from the first preview was amazing though, and she looks great in the green :)
