I know this has probably been discussed again and again, but just for arguments sake here it is again! lol....

Wicked is bound to come to london, its just a case of where and when. Its gonna have to be one of the biggest theatres, and my guess is for the palladium after chitty.

Heres my ideal uk cast...what would be yours?

Elphaba: Kerry Ellis
Glinda: Katie Knight-Adams
Fiyero: Tim Howar
Boq: Mig Ayesa
Madam Morrible: Rosie Ashe
Nessarosse: Celia Graham
The Wizard: Henry Goodman
Dr.Dillamond: James Paterson

When I saw Blood Brothers in the West End I saw a couple people who I thought might be good in Wicked. First, the actress who played Linda looked like she could make a good Glinda. Also, the actress who was Mrs. Johnstone would make a good Madame Morrible.

Nicky Adams would be a great Galinda as well.

yeah...shes katies alternate in phantom at the mo. saw her as christine and was not impressed, whereas katie is luminous in the role. shed be perfect as galinda.


...linda in blood brothers doesnt do any proper singing, so u cant possibly tell whether shed be any good in a full-blown singing role.

hmm.....siobhan mccarthy would make an interesting, if rather young morrible, or maybe even julia mckenzie, whod be fabulous!

Sorry--I should have just said that she looked like a good Glinda acting-wise.

Just saw Les Miz today and would like to add that Sophia Ragavelas would make a great Nessa.

You're right, jgph, Tim Howar could be an adorable Fiyero!

it couldnt possibly be the dominion for a very long time- we will rock you is still incredibly successful (although its merits are doubtful) and it wont be leaving the dominion for an extremely long time.

Palladium is more likely, chittys been on borrowed time for a while now.
