Just to let everyone know, we have full video footage of both Rachel's Prom performances, plus loads of stage photos on the blog right now!

And if that's not enough, Andy has taken some great stage pics at Hyde Park yesterday!

You know where to look!

Is it really only 6 days until WWRY starts? Thats flown by!!

The write up of ALWs birthday is great!
Tho...I don't think it'll be only me that says...I bet Sarah and Rachels duet of 'As if we never said goodbye' was better

I'd agree that Sarah & Rachel's duet was awesome and one of the best IDA moments -- however watching Rachel & Niamh performing live barely twenty feet away was an absolutely incredible experience.

I'd say it's a pretty close run thing.

Hi, I went to see WWRY on wednesday. I had my ticket way before it was announced that rachel would be taking of the role of meat. Considering it was only her 3rd preformance she was fab. During no one but you, she kept doing this sly grinning thing, you could tell she was loving being up there. The show was fantastic and i wish all the look in the world to rachel after she her perform.

btw, I was quite shocked as to how small she is was in real life (height wise i mean lol)

Haha I thought as much from what she'd written on the blog.

In all honesty, she's bloomin' gorgeous, an incredibly talented musical performer, actress and singer, and evidently a fantastic and generous person, so am I the only one who would think it a teensy-weensy bit unfair if she had brains the size of rocket ships too?!!

But still looking forward to it nonetheless. Were any of the other IDA girls game enough to go on?

Ah, yes! Dopey me! Hadn't thought of that

Thanks for the info though! I can't stand Anne Robinson normally but might have to make an exception for this particular show!

Just felt the need the bump this thread after Rachel's phenomenal performance of Love Shine a Light at West End Eurovision last week. Did anyone else go? It was an amazing evening and Rachel gave by far the best vocal performance of the night, and she and the We Will Rock You team were totally robbed. How they didnít win Iíll never know, definitely some dodgy voting going on there.
I have to admit that Rachel was never one of my faves during Iíd Do Anything, until she won me over with Cabaret, but after seeing her in WWRY, and then last week, I firmly believe she is one of the best vocalists working in the West End at the moment, and is made of awesome.

Gosh, good on her. That's a big, highly sought after part. Thinking about what we saw on IDA, I wouldn't have been convinced that she was vocally up to it, but so many of the girls have proved they are capable of more than we saw on the show. I'll have to make sure to see her.

I wouldn't either but as you say the shows seem to have hidden as much as they showed. I quite fancy Helena in that role - massive range, massive belt, quirky helps in that role and she would be fine green. Anyway well done Rachel.

The Wicked casting may be linked to So Jest End where Rachel and her new Wicked co -star amongst other things spoofed Wicked.........Someone may have had an idea......

5-20 in.....

Interestingly when Jodie goes in March the girls from the ALW shows on in the Westend will have come third, fourth (both of them) fifth and in Sarah's case seventh.

If I was in one of these shows I'd be wanting to finish fourth. Aoife, Ben and Rachel have got to be the most successful of those who didn't win, and they have comparable success to the winner.

I went to see Rachel in Wicked on Monday. Wow! I thought she was magnificent as Elphaba! She really commands the stage and her acting and singing are wonderful. She was so nice at the stage door afterwards too, really sweet and friendly. I'm thrilled she's doing well in this role, she's just going from strength to strength.

I didn't post on here during IDA but Rachel was by far my favourite after Sarah Lark left so I've kept an eye out to see what she's been up to since. I finally saw her live in Wicked last Thursday and can confirm it was more than worth the wait! It was my first time at seeing the show (though I know the music very well and have read the novels) and I think it was actually better than I had thought it would be, which I'm sure is down to the casting. Rachel is incredibly powerful as Elphaba and her on-stage relationships are very believable. Brilliant casting.
