Wicked The Most Audience Videoed Show Ever?

17 June 2013 - 07:12 PM

You type Wicked into YouTube, there is literally hundreds of videos, sound bites and images of the show, the London, Broadway, Australian, Asian, German and US tours are all bootlegged massively. Is it just me, or is Wicked the most illegally filmed show ever?

Most Underrated Actors/actresses

08 June 2013 - 07:56 PM

I've been thinking about this for ages and there are so many people in the ensemble who are so talented and hard working but they get shunned just for the sake of having a "name" in the cast. In my opinion, this is evident in Tamara Wall and Emily Tierney in particular.

Tamara was amazing in Legally Blonde and steals the show in Viva Forever!, its just a shame she is never really given a leading role status when she could easily of been given much more to do in Viva! in particular.

Emily is finally getting her big break in Wicked UK Tour as Glinda, and she will undoubtably be amazing and it will open alot of doors for her. But her in The Wizard Of Oz, she stole the entire performance for me, i went solely to see her and went back to the final show just to see her and give her flowers. She is a stunning talent and deserves alot more than she gets.

So i was just wondering everyones thoughts on this and also who you think are some of the underrated people on the West End at the moment. Please share your thoughts!

Biggest Ever Casting Mistake...

08 June 2013 - 03:52 PM

In your opinions, what are the worst casting mistakes of all time in both Musical Theatre or, to make it more interesting, Musical Film and why?

*Note: im talking about the individual performance of an Actor/Actress! Not the musical itself or if the musical is any good at all... Just the individual performances and if the Actor/Actress is any good with the role they are asked to carry out.
