Is she still in the 1NT as Madame Morrible? I have tried to find an answer online from an official site with no luck.

I saw her performance as Morrible a handful of times and I loved it. She's one of the best actresses to play the role yet. She adds in these little touches that take her performance above and beyond.

I'm so sad I'm probably not going to get to see her :/. Unless the 1NT extends which is not impisible, but who knows how much longer she will stay. I fell in love with her through "It Could Be Worse", so when I put 2 and 2 together I lost my sh*t with excitement. I'm deffinately going to write to her in Salt Lake City.

I would imagine that Fraser sings the role more than many; it's often been cast with gifted character women who talk the few musical interludes. Is it more effective performed with a legit singer? (Fraser's voice is pretty terrific.)

Alison Fraser is indeed excellent as Madame Morrible. Her voice and overall appearance are perfectly suited for the role.

Her "Citizens of Oz..." speech was chilling.

If you enjoyed her comedic performance in "It Could Be Worse," I'd REALLY recommend the cast recording of "Romance/Romance." It's a very quirky show with an excellent score ("The Night It Had To End" is not to be missed) and some great moments of comedy. It's one of those cast recordings produced so the listener can follow along easily with the plot. It doesn't just seem like a bunch of songs thrown together.

Check it out if you have a chance!

Her songs are always a highlight when I jog around the reservoir listening to the OBC of THE SECRET GARDEN.

I have loved her since her role in Romance/Romance -- she is brilliant!
"Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion's starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don't see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it's not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it's always there - fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge - they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I've got a sneaky feeling you'll find that love actually is all around."
