    Menzel vs Block

    March 30, 2020 by EdwardJacobBella

    As most of you know Idina Menzel is the orignal Elphaba for Broadway and London's West End, while Stephanie J. Block was the orignal Elphaba for the 1st National Tour. But you don't know, unless you have read Wicked The Grimmerie, is that Stephaine J. Block read for Elphaba in the early workshops while Wicked was being developed before Joe Mantello came onborad as director.

    So I have decided to compare the two of them. You will see a clip of both of two performing Defying Gravity.

    First up - Idina Menzel

    This is from when she was in London's West End. This is the whole song so I would skip to about 5:43.

    Finally - Stephanie J. Block

    Now I have no idea where this was from.

    In my opinion, both do an amazing job with performing Elphaba.

    So what do y…

    Here is another comparison of Defying Gravity.


    Jessica Vosk and Hannah Corneau are on it, and also the person I saw my very first time seeing Wicked, Alice Feran, but it isn't very single person who has played Elphaba. Don't worry there are some very familiar faces, including Idina Menzel herself.

    Just like the first video, it is a mixutre of visual and sound clips, so I do apologise for the quailty of some of them.

    There are two Elphabas who doesn't sing in English, and they are Danna Paola and Viviana Barrera.

    Caissie Levy's name is spelt wrong, there is a "I" missing, so is Donna Vivino's name, there is an extra "N", so is Mamie Paris, there is an extra "S", so is Jennifer DiNoia's name, there is an "E" instead of an "I", and so is Chri…

    Here is a video I found on YouTube comparing different Elphabas in Defying Gravity.


    This video was posted early March 2015, so it is the Elphabas up until that point.

    Not all of them are English speaking.

    It is a mixture of visal and audio clips. The quilaty of some of the clips are not very good, so I apolosie for them.

    Idina Menzel's name is written wrong, I believe on purpose because how John Travolta said her name at the Oscars.

    One of them doesn't have her name displayed, so if any of you know who it is let me know.

    How many of you have noticed that there are some actors that were or are in Frozen, have also been in Wicked. Here is a list of them and the role they played in both. For the Wicked ones, I will say when and what company it was.

    Note: Idina Menzel will not be included, she may have played both Elphaba and Elsa, but she was only Elsa's voice actor.

    Actor Role in Wicked Role in Frozen
    Caissie Levy Elphaba (U) Dec 2006 - Oct 2007 - B, Elphaba (S) Nov - Dec 2007 - LA, Elphaba (M) Jan - May 2008 Elsa (M) Feb 2018 - Feb 2020- B

    Backstage Vlogs

    October 20, 2019 by EdwardJacobBella

    I'm that a lot of you have seen the Backstage Vlogs for Broadway.Com. In case you don't know, they are called Fly Girl, Think Pink, Fiyero Time, Call Me Madam and A Little Sparkle.

    I want to know which one is your favourite, favourite part in an episode, and who is your favourite host. They don't have to be for the same vlog.

    Here is a little info, just in case you don't know.

    Fly Girl - Lindsay Mendez - Elphaba

    Think Pink - Kara Lindsay - Glinda

    Fiyero Time - Jonah Platt - Fiyero

    Call Me Madam - Sheryl Lee Ralph - Madam Morrible

    A Little Sparkle - Amanda Jane Cooper - Glinda

    Which character do you think should host the next one? My opinon is it should be another Elphaba since we have had two Glindas.

    Wicked the Moive

    October 19, 2019 by EdwardJacobBella

    As you know there will be a movie version of Wicked coming out next year.

    So I would like to know who you think should be cast in the movie.

    I will start off with Lea Michelle as Elphaba. My reasoning being that I can totally see her in the role being since she did play Idina Menzel's daughter in Glee and she has sung Elphaba's most famous song, Defying Gravity. Lea Michelle did admit in an interview she has been mistaken for Idina Menzel.

    There are rumors that both Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth will be in the movie. I'm not sure what roles they would play if they are in it though.

    It is also rumoured that Amanda Seyfried wants to play Glinda.

    So who do you think will cast in the movie?

    Some Fanfic

    April 7, 2018 by Lisztomania

    I adjusted my laptop case strap as Nessa and I walked through the airport. It was about a million degrees out and I burn very easily. I spotted a sign being held up across from baggage claim that read, "Thropp".

    "Come on Nessa." I called to my sister. I stopped and waited for her to catch up. Nessa walked as fast as she could her bag slung over her shoulder. It started to slip and I helped her push it back into place.

    "Thanks." She said quietly. I continued walking and went to the baggage claim and grabbed our suitcases. I pulled them along to the people who were holding the "Thropp" sign. It was a family of blondes. A man of medium height was a little taken aback by my eyes, very pale blue and piercing. He offered me his hand.

    So I recently discovered the Wicked Wiki and I've been clicking around voraciously enjoying myself.  Through one of my random click streams I landed on this news announcement from the featured Blog "Innuendo and Outuendo" about an alleged Wicked performance in Bryant Park, NYC:

    Much to my dismay it was not an announcement about a performance to come but one that had already passed.  Perhaps I'm out of the loop because I was certainly not informed of this beforehand!  I live just a few minutes away from Bryant Park also, so I'm very sad that I missed it!  Well, at least I have some youtube clips that get my fix...

    Favorite Glindas

    January 27, 2015 by Ashley Brown

    Since I did a picture set of my favorite Elphies, her best and only friend should be recognized as well:

    What better way to start the list than to pick the veteran of Glindas. Katie Rose Clarke is my favortie as she has been with the show for 5 years and has worked with 2 of my favorite elphies: Willemijn Verkaik and Lindsay Mendez. Katie has be known to the "Cat Fight Girl" in the show for me as she has been grazed before and one who has also grazed her is Mendez. Katie was in another blog with fellow Wicked Alumni, Andy Karl and stole Lindsay's camera during the Fly Girl episodes. If any long term girl deserves a bubble dress, crown, and wand, it's this Glinda.

    While this is an after photo, Alli Mauzey is another Glinda that is special. Al…

    Favorite Elphies

    January 27, 2015 by Ashley Brown

    Since I have now become a fan of the show and have seen Wicked, I have done some research and found some Elphies that I like:

    Lindsay Mendez is my first favorite Elphie. Since being in the show from late 2013-Feb 22, 2014, Mendez went from being famous as Rose in Dogfight to Godspell. Lindsay did a 11 episode blog known as Fly Girl and is a favorite Elphie of mine.

    Tied for second is Kerry Ellis and Willemijn Verkaik. Both girls have done the show in the UK. Verkaik has done Wicked on Broadway in New York and co-starred with veteran Glinda, Katie Rose Clarke. Both girls were on the Wicked soundtrack for either the 5 anneversay or deluxe version. It's hard to choose given that these wonder girls have given the fans overseas and in the US some…

    What I got from the play is this: Glinda, the good witch comes and she gives reassurance to the good people of Oz that Elphaba, the wicked witch of the west is dead. One of the munchkins speaks out of a rumor that Glinda knew the witch, while Glinda admitted to knowing the green witch, it was an accident that the two became friend. Explaining that long before the events pertaining to the wizard of oz took place. Elphaba was born into a normal family, but had green skin from a potion that her mother drank. Sometime later, Elphaba's mother had a daughter, Nessarose, but she was born paralyzed. Both girls possessed magic, but Elphaba possessed a special type a magic when provoked or in danger, can occur.

    Wonderful struck me as an odd number. While it's cool that Elphaba and the Wizard forgot what set Elphaba off, it's weird that they would break into a dance at a certain point in the number.

    Cool Pics

    October 19, 2014 by Orangebirdy82

    Are people born wicked?

    I wanted to talk about each of this image, and what they might mean to Oz fans like myself, and if they have meaning, help you realize something, or are just funny and cool. Let us start with Are people born wicked?.This of course is a quote made by Glinda in No One Mourns The Wicked. I do not believe that Elphaba was born wicked, I believe that she had wickedness thrust upon her in the sense that it was how people treated her that made her wicked, not the way her initial character was when she was first brought into existence.

    Elphaba review

    March 18, 2014 by Wickedfan

    Hello fellow Wicked lovers! I'm new here so I'm going to start out with writing a review about Alison Luff. Who I believe is the best Elphaba. I'll start at the begining:

    Alsion Luff is currently starring as Elphaba Thropp on the 1st national tour along side Gina Beck as Glinda. I saw her in Boston three times, with Jenn Gambatese as Glinda. And in RI with Gina Beck. Though recovering from a sickness while into Boston, all three times Alison Luff stunned all of us in the audience as the green girl in Oz. i heard a person sitting next to me say after she sung "Defying Gravity" say "Move over Indina Menzel, someone has taken your place." Almost everyone around him agreed, myself included. Alison showed the true emotions of Elphaba. After Chis…

It was the most amazifying experience of my life! Stephanie walked onto that stage and room literally just lit up (Or was that just in my head?). I couldn't stop smiling the whole time, and I was actually crying tears of joy half the show (Which caused me to not sing as well as I normally could). Unfortunately, I was not able to get an autograph, but it was still the greatest day of my life!

I found a recording of all the songs in Wicked on her first performance as Elphaba, and she's incredible! There are a ton of optional riffs in all of the Wicked songs, but few are ever used, especially by one specific actor. Well, Christine Dwyer uses so many riffs, some of the riffs she used I didn't even know existed! And what's ever cooler, she totally rocks all of them! Just listen to the recordings, and you'll understand her awesomeness!

    Wicked and Metal

    December 20, 2011 by Bookworm1138

    I don't know who's really going to pay much attention to this, since it seems that nobody else in the Wicked fan-dom likes heavy metal music. But here's for trying.

    As far as metal songs that have stuck out profoundly in relation to Wicked, the Metallica song "The Frayed Ends of Sanity" has always, in my opinion, been associated with book Elphaba, since she actually did go insane towards the end. In that same vein, the Diamond Head song "Am I Evil?" (famously covered by Metallica) seems to go well with Liir. "Bible Black" by Heaven and Hell seems to fit in well with the idea that the Grimmerie is a little more sinister than typically portrayed, but that's tipping into fanon rather than strictly canon like the first two.

    Wicked fan-fiction Update

    September 18, 2011 by Bookworm1138

    The two interim fan-fics that I've promised are on ice so to speak. They may not appear yet, but its a definite that they will eventually.

    Right now I'm heavily bogged down trying to write the ones featured below...

    • Of Saints and Sinners
    • The Life and Times of a Jedi Outcast
    • A Musician's Fan Fiction

    The top two are original ideas, the one featuring the ancient past of Oz while the third featuring a 'band' fic, with the characters in a music band. The middle one is a cross-over of Star Wars and Wicked (because only I can do that and do it well! lol).

    As much as it sounds like whoring my wares, I ask you to read, review and, possibly, suggest ideas for these stories and/or future ones.
