Saw the show last night.  Love this cast!!!  For me Willemijn is perfect as Elphaba, I thought she was amazing.  She sings the songs effortlessly and makes them her own in a subtle way...not many riffs but some of her phrasing is different.  Loved her characterisation (a mix of social awkwardness, quirkiness, insecurity and anger) and there's already good chemistry between her and Savannah. Savannah is quite an over the top Galinda, and it worked well in contrast to Willemijn's reserved Elphaba.  She was very funny and got lots of laughs.  Jeremy as Fiyero was good...it was nice having a Fiyero again who could sing, dance and act!  Have good things to say about all the cast, and the ensemble are strong.  I sat with a stupid grin on my face the whole way through the show.

Saw the show on Friday.  Got £15 ticket deal on lastminute and we were upgraded to row D of the Royal Circle, Grand Circle was closed and there were still a lot of empty seats.  I enjoyed the show, without being amazed and without any emotional connection to the story or characters.  Not particularly memorable but there are some catchy songs and good performances (Darius Campbell was much better than I expected).  The audience reactions were mixed, some sitting near us weren't enjoying it but others gave an enthusiastic standing ovation at the end.  I'd say its worth seeing, especially since there seems lots of discounts available.

Saw Once on Thursday and loved it.  It's very different from anything else I've seen, or anything else on the West-end at the moment.  Stripped back, simple, sad and honest.  A strong cast, and loved Declan Bennett's voice but Zrinka Cvitesic is the star of the show.
