Re: Helen Dallimore: first Glinda I saw. Still can't decide whether she or Dianne is my favourite. Probably because I first saw Wicked so long ago.

Helen was very much the posh, in your face, annoying Glinda, Dianne a bit more likeable I think. Enjoyed both.

In Topic: Starlight Revival? Original Vs Reworked?

Definitely the 1984 version, given the choice. However, I'd prefer the 80s/90s version of the German production, just in English.

Hmmm, I can't make up my mind about Sam. Initially she really grated on me (on the telly), then her Eponine was not too bad in London. Movie was good singing-wise, but don't think she made Eponine all she could be acting wise (though could be direction), even though I'm really pleased for her and where she's getting at such a young age, and I'm so glad she got the job and not some celebrity.
Seeing this left me a bit underwhelmed again. A CZJ copycat. A Salonga copycat before that. I suppose we're all inspired and emulate other people in the things we do, but it just left me unimpressed after seeing this particular video.

Yes, Heather does no matinees.

Thanks for confirming.

Looks like all the Rachels are getting mixed reviews in any case!

Forgive me for not reading too far back in this thread, but I couldn't resist the lastminute offer and have now booked a ticket for the 2nd August matinee. That means Gloria should be on, right?
