I hope the Scottish Boq understudy takes over. He was ace when we saw him ^^

In the article it says who is taking over as Boq, can't remember what the Scottish guy's name was.

I'm gutted Kerry's leaving obv, as she is amazing, but i've seen her twice so i'm happy :)

I wanna go see it in the summer now that Andy Mace is leaving...coz it means David Stoller is Doctor Dillamond, and he's pretty cool!

And I want to give him more epic cheers :D

And yes I was talking about this in my first lesson this morning, yay for Wickedness in my day!

I know! I'm going to miss her so much! I'm seeing her on the 2nd with pixie_socks to say a farewell. Kind of want to go on the 9th too but I doubt there would be tickets.

Always good to talk about. lols.

She really is amazing!
Someone my mum works with took her daughter for the 4th time in the easter holidays and finally got to see Kerry, and my mum got ambushed for Wicked flailing on Monday....lmao.

And yeah, I wish I could go again before the 9th, but there's no way i could ever make it happen!

And it totally is, and theres not many of my friends who can put up with my obsession though.

Thats a shame you can't get to go.
I'm Kerry will be in something else though, you will have a chance to see her again.

lol, I'm lucky I have someone who is just as obbessed as me!

yeah it is, but i've seen it twice already this year, so my mum saying no is pretty reasonable lol.

And yeah, wish I did...i've got a couple of friends who've seen it, and a few less who've seen it more than once, but i wouldn't go as far as to say any of them are obsessed...
Hannah Lewis: [Wicked] Oliver&Kerryapaperdoll on April 22nd, 2009 10:20 pm (UTC)
Yeah I can see that, lols.

Well I guess that is what Livejournal is for ;)

Who is this obsessed friend you talk about, hmmm?

And Andy Mace is leaving?! WHUT! NOOOOO! He hasn't signed my Grimmerie :(
Hannah Lewis: [Disney] Belleapaperdoll on April 23rd, 2009 01:12 pm (UTC)
Oh you wouldn't know her, I only talk to her because I have no one else to share Wicked with.

Yes he is, did you not read the post? When do we do it!?
Clare: [Disney] Alice In Wonderlandpixie_socks on April 23rd, 2009 06:19 pm (UTC)
I need Morrible and Mace (alliteration FTW) to sign my Grimmerie, so we can bring it to GREEN!stage door, seeing as it will be our last chance. :(
