The ending sounds a bit crackly, but I can so forgive her listening to her DG! Wish I was there!

Defying Gravity - Alexia Khadime and Chloe Taylor (u/s now s/b)
Way back when Chloe was just an understudy in October 2009! Who knew back then she’d be back as standby!
This is the reason I love the London orchestrations. Listen to those drums as Elphie rises!
I’m sure we all know how Elphaba defies gravity in Wicked - But here’s what it looks like without the lights, smoke, costumes etc. This was my very first youtube upload on my old account over 3 years ago! It has now got over 75,000 views. Wow!

To get an idea of what Louise’s Elphaba might sound like - here she is singing ‘Rely On Me The Lead’ from Jest end with Rachel Tucker. This is before they joined the cast of Wicked. Louise is playing Glinda but tells the story of how Elphaba gets all the credit and then sings the song herself. It’s a spoof of Defying Gravity.
According to the Daily Mail,Louise Dearman is set to return as Elphaba in the London production of Wicked at the Apollo Victoria from Oct. 29.
Read the original reporthere.
Dearman played Elphaba’s foil Glinda in the show through December 2011. Now that she is taking on the other lead, she will be the first actress to play both starring roles in the musical.
