Make it four! Saw them together three times in span of a week when the tour touched down in Tulsa.

I would love to see Talia Suskauer take over as Broadway Elphaba at some point. I saw her several times on tour and she blew me away. Maybe my favorite behind Jessica Vosk

Also, I’m so sad Hannah had such a short run. I know 9 months is the standard contract, but I wish she could’ve been given a 12 or 14 month contract like some these other long run elphabas.
"

I agree about Lindsay and Sam, same blue eyes and face shape. Sam actually has a twin sister who’s not into acting. I wish I’d had the chance to see Hannah and heard only positive reviews from her run. After her voice was injured I worried how long her run would be but I agree that they keep the contract’s to 9 months to allow the actors time to recover. Jessica Vosk and Jackie Burns have returned so hopefully Hannah will too.

Aren’t they fantastic? They have something special when they play their roles onstage together. Their real-Life friendship plays out beautifully. If you’re like myself and we’re lucky enough to see them on tour, you not only fell in love with their Elphie and Glinda but also their friendship. Love the double name witches!

Its more to due with the demands of the show. The Elphie role is incredibly taxing on the actress vocally. 9 months is enough for most without a break. Some have gone a year at a time (examples: Shoshana, Mary Kate Morrissey on tour, etc). But that's not standard. Glinda on the other hand can play forever and GC is such a natural at it I hope she's around a long time (long enough to reunite with Mary Kate in her broadway debut as Elphie)."

I too hope Ginna Claire has a long run! Wonder what the longest Glinda record on Broadway is? I think I read Amanda Jane Cooper’s was over 2 years when the returned to repise the role? My hope is to see Ginna Claire reunite with Mary Kate Morrissey and Sam Gravitte still be Fiyero!
"

 

Amanda was more like 16.5 months. Started the last day of July 2017 and finished mid December 2018.

Longest run on Broadway is Katie Rose Clarke from January 2010 to September 2011, like 20-21 months I think. She did take around a months medical leave in Early 2011 and Laura Woyasz went on for the whole month, but even with that her run is still a few months longer I guess Amanda has the longest uninterrupted run though!

The crazy thing is that both of them had just come off the back of long tour stints too, with only a few months break before going to Broadway. Katie was on tour Dec 2007-Aug 2009, while Amanda was on the road Dec 2015-Mar 2017. That's crazy stamina from both of them!
