    I hope the imagineers can come up with a good new idea.
    Imagineers aren't involved in live entertainment, there's a special department at Disneyland that takes care of that.

    There's a NAME for those things?? I thought the technical agricultural term was "little white things." Why....I just used them this morning! Let's see if I can use it in a sentence:

    If Aladdin used vermiculite on his melon patch while riding in an electric wheelchair, the story would have no verisimilitude."

    Yeah, as Disney Analyst has said, it's live theatre. Sometimes it's safer to not stick actors in a mechanical effect that they know isn't working properly or safely for the moment. I saw Wicked last year at the Pantages, and Elphaba didn't fly. I'd rather the effect not go into play instead of the actress possibly getting hurt. Sure, I was a little bummed, but the scene was still spectacular and moving. I can deal with it. It's safety for crying out loud.

    I hope the magic carpet effect comes back soon...that's what made the show for me the one time I saw it (and the Genie).

    Going a little back, the woman thats in the wheel chair knows my cousin, and she is very skilled, she does other things in the production too.

    Re: why did they take out the flying carpet in the aladdin show at dca?

    Still off topic (dodges vermiculite covered melon) but JAFAR ROCKS! GREAT voice and just plain scary evil! Some folks have been bagging on this show, but my kids and I had a great time last week. The old genie was back from last Summer (or his twin), both Jasmin and Aladdin sang VERY well, and the whole production was top notch. (back on topic) The magic carpet would have put it over the top.

    OMG!!! This is one of the most insensitive things that I have ever read on these boards. So, what you are saying is that she could not possible have been as talented as the other people that tried out, that the only reason they cast her is because she is in a wheelchair. What a bunch of bull#%*&!!!!!! You don't have any idea. Maybe she is an extemely talented performer and they decided to cast in in even though she is in a chair.

    Nope. I knew when she was supposed to fly too, as I'd seen promos and I was waiting for it. They just continued the scene with the guards surrounding her, and Elphaba pointing her broomstick warningly at them.

    I also have friends who went on a different day and Glinda didn't have her bubble...so I guess Elphaba that night said, "Well not all of us can travel by bubble, and tonight, neither can you!" lol

    Re: why did they take out the flying carpet in the aladdin show at dca?

    They had TONS of problems with G(a)linda's bubble at the pentages, and if I remember right, with the defying gravity lift too, which is by far the most impressive part of the show, sad you had to miss it... Anywho, it's really rare that the lift fails these days, haven't heard of it happening at all in the past few months. Sounds like that was a failiure though, and the carpet is planned, I know the producers of Wicked would never hire an actress to play elphie is she was uncapable of loading into the flying lift, or a woman to play G(a)linda who couldn't fly in the bubble!

    LMAO!! It's great ad-libbing like that that makes me love live theater. Hell, I think it's more fun when they have to cover up like that!
