Defying Gravity - London Pride 2010, Rachel . Gives you some idea what she can do when she's not limited by directors and the show score.

Rachel is nominated for best leading actress in a musical in the new broadwayworld UK awards. In good company with Sheridan, Sierra and Tamzin. Currently fighting for second place with Sheridan in first. Aoife is nominated for best featured actress in a musical too.

Wicked have put some youtubes up about the last cast change featuring interviews with Rachel and some more youtubes of rehearsals.

There's also the latest from the show.

Defying Gravity August

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t6ecbu_23K4

- Misc from later august... with growl.

According to her twitter Rachel is in the show to Feb 5. No idea if thats extendable, but if she can sing it for longer they would be silly not to?

Rachel's up for best takeover in a leading role in the Whatsonstage awards. She's up against Kerry Ellis, who has a big fan following, and Rachel is just 0..2% ahead at present ! If anyone feels inclined to vote
http://awards.whatsonstage.com/index.php?pg=1080

Wicked is also up for best show and Sam and Les Mis are doing well in some categories too with legally Blonde taking even more.

I think Rachel is now Queen of the West End audience curtain call response as her competition for the salute style , mass standing ovation has now gone with Sheridan Smith leaving Legally.

She's started 2011 in top gear.

Rachel is on Dancing On Ice next Sunday the 13th as part of their theatre night. She's reportedly not with her new Fiyero so its going to be a solo from Wicked?

If she does Defying Gravity or No Good Deed at full power , viewers expecting a quiet night in may get a shock......

Cast Change Last Saturday - with speedier versions and bigger growls. The conductor was jumping up and down and treading air to the music which might also explain the speeding up.........

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tv7YHcfi2Lw&NR=1

Rachel is Elphaba until Dec 10, all things being well.

Westend live is on, free, in Trafalgar Square, this Saturday and Sunday. Wicked is scheduled to be there, and accoding to her twitter, so is Rachel.

Wicked is on the schedule for 1135-1143 on Saturday.

There's also, possibly, a lot of other TV show names there. Million Dollar Quartet start the Saturday schedule - possibly with Francesca there .Legally blonde is also on on Saturday - no idea if Siobhan is involved. Wizard of Oz has a slot on Sunday. Helena Blackman has singing slots on both days.
