Lindsay Mendez to replace Willemijn Verkaik as Elphaba in WICKED? Apr 16

The current Elphaba understudy on the 2NT is 6 foot tall and by no means is tiny girl. I think Lindsay will be fine. Doesn't matter to me what she looks like. As long as she can sing without doing too much crazy riffing she will be ok.

"If Melissa O'Neil, who will play Eponine in the Toronto revival, gets good reviews I'd like to see her play the role in the Broadway revival."
Is this the same Melissa O'Neil that won Canadian Idol?
I would love to see Donna Vivino cast as Fantine after playing Young Cosette in the OBC. Would love to see Kristine Reese as Cosette also.

I think Lea Salonga could still play Kim. She still looks like she is 20yrs. old.

I'd love to see her but with ticket prices going up to $112 before charges for partial views and up to $165 for orch. soon I highly doubt that will happen.

"What the hell is a Dan'Yelle... Did they mean Danielle but not know how to spell it?"
Her name is Dan'Yelle. There are different spellings of it. Not really that hard to figure out.

Who am I trying to build up? I only saw Elena and Christina in the role. I "heard" Jessica and thought she sounded better on the high stuff. I have no friends or family in the show nor am I a huge fan of anyone but Rachel Potter...whom IMO steals the show with her 4 minute song.

Would you like me to show you my ticket Anthony Mouse? I don't have any ulterior motive but it seems you do. I know what I heard. Christina was struggling. That being said she was A LOT better to watch and hear over Elena who made me cringe everytime she opened her mouth.
Stage door question Oct 14

Stage door at the Pantages is very orderly. They have a barricade up. It's in a gated area too. Best way to get out there is use the doors to the far right(left if you are leaving the theatre). They take you right to them. After Wicked I just got outside when Katie Rose came running down the ramp to sign.
Wicked Partial View seats question Aug 25

Would you guys suggest row K seats 29 and 31 over, say, row F? Which side is better - house left or house right?
If it's their first time seeing it I would say row K is a better option. I prefer sitting on the right side(even numbers) as the stairs on the stage on the left side can be annoying at times.

"Oh give me a freaking break. No one brought a pizza into WICKED. That is totally ridiculous. You just want to hear yourself talk."
Actually someone did bring a pizza into Wicked. Cast members had facebook statuses about it when it happened.
Rachel IS in the ensemble after she sings her song as the Mistress. She is hard to find though throughout scenes. Look at your Playbill as you will see she is listed as Mistress/ensemble.

"I understood Elena perfectly and thought she was great. I think people have the Patti recording emblazoned into their brains."
I didn't understand a word that Elena was saying either and I NEVER heard Patti's version. Lisa Brescia yes but Patti no.
I would never walk out of a show since I work my ass of for my money. And I enjoyed the company I was with when I saw Elena.

"Sadly, I have not seen this production live. I am talking in terms of cast albums and audio/video recordings (unfortunately). Vocally she is my favorite. I WILL be seeing the show soon though with Elena Roger"
You might feel different after actually seeing her. Just saying...
