On 2nd February, Carrie St. Louis will be taking over as Glinda (having previously played that role in the National Tour), and there'll also be a new Wizard, Morrible, Boq, Nessa and Dillamond. And apparently, Alyssa Fox will become the new s/b Elphaba. Now that's what I call a cast change
Luckily, I'm seeing the show next Tuesday, I'd be quite disappointed if I had missed out on seeing Kara Lindsay's Glinda.
I saw Rachel a few weeks ago, I almost forgot what it felt like to be so in awe with elphaba, it seems to be hit & miss with elphabas in London. At least if they're going to be consistent with the lead elphabas we should have a really good one again after Emma!
I've heard on the staged grapevine that Rachel will be taking the role of Ellen in Miss Saigon on Broadway when it goes over...! In regards to wicked 10 i reckon every elphie/ Glinda/ fiyero etc that could make it should come back for a week of past casts!
I've seen Ms Dwyer twice in 2014 (when she was fulltime Elphaba) and am not too thrilled to see her again. At least Kara Lindsay is on.
And I've got two more shots at seeing Rachel in March. Better luck then...
I would actually cry if I saw Elphaba on the "At the performance the role of..." board when I go in March...as much as I enjoy the audios of Alyssa Fox, who will be Stand-by Elphaba at that point, I must see Rachel again.
