In my opinion if Kerry was then there's every chance Rachel could be. I'm talking in general now by the way and not basing this on that comment she may or may not have said. She's been an incredibly popular Elphaba even if not so much with yourself. (I loved Kerry but do prefer Rachel, and yes I have seen others too
I agree about the tour though, to play Elphaba and be travelling after doing it for 2 and a half years in London, I think that's very unlikely.
It has nothing to do with her not being my favourite Elphie, she's actually one of my favourites (out of the 8 I've seen)... I just think cuz she's played it for SO long in London now (longer than Kerry did I believe), it's simply unlikely they'd ask her to continue in the role (on Broadway!)... It can't be good for her voice; even after a couple years, she's recently had to miss a show every week to avoid damaging her voice. She's definitely a popular Elphaba, and deservedly so! That doesn't automatically mean she'll be asked to do the show on Broadway. I still believe there's almost 0% chance of that happening. But if it does, I'll be happy for her
Exactly. She's already had over 2 years of playing the role in the West End. Why would she accept to do the tour? Again, I just can't see it. I personally think Rachel's talent shouldn't be limited to Elphaba. I'd love to see her in other things.
