    WICKED Wednesday Video

    Enjoy:

    Part 1 (misc & Carol Kane): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TIkIHG-c8dE

    Part 2 (Julie Reiber in "The Wizard and I"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=syVluj0C3bc

    Part 3 (Melissa Fahn in "Popular"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cUWw8LBWtlA

    Part 4 (Julie & Melissa in "For Good"): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PXHmjBrPGP4

    Anybody else thinking this event may spark a WICKED takeover of Blues Brothers or Wild West stage or Western Stage like in USJ?? Like this is testing the waters of how a WICKED attraction may bring in more guests to the park. I didn't think of the possibility much, but recently discovering Japan just opened an OFFICAL Japanese version of the entire show, not just a brief theme park version, makes me wonder now. Like how Disneyland used to have shows and parades that went along with an animated film's release. Or in the future when the film version of WICKED is released...

    I'd still be happy if Blues Brothers was reduced to what they do with Monroe & the Diamond Dolls... drive a car out, do a song and dance number, then meet & greet.

    I'm hoping that this is a joke, and this is a guest doing karaoke. If this is really the person doing Galinda, then I hope with all my heart that she never gets to do the role in the movie.

    Weak singing, vibrato you could drive a truck through, and no breath control.

    If that's all deliberate and is part of the "character" then I much prefer the original actress Kristen Chenoweth. She really sold the song. Melissa's putting it on the bargain clearance table.

    If you want to compare live performances, have a look at this rainy performance by Kristen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dXyJ0J_K1qk

    Re: WICKED Wednesday Video

    I think both Julie and Melissa are the standbys for the LA production at the Pantages Theater. There was an Emily Rozek listed instead of Melissa, not sure if there was a last minute switch or not.

    Speaking of karaoke, most of the girls in the karaoke contest were actually pretty good. Of course it got a bit tiring of the majority singing "Popular"

    The employee magazine I have has different info compared to what is seen on the USH website. So I don't know...

    I was there too! I was disappointed with Melissa. And I would rather have Megan Hilty play Galinda/Glinda in the movie (if there ever is one) than Kristen Chenoweth.

    Another vote for Megan Hilty as Glinda!

    I was reading the comments on the "Popular" video and one person said that since Megan Hilty was in New York for nine days, Emily Rozek had to be in the show and therefore couldn't perform at USH, so this Melissa Fahn girl is the understudy of the understudy...and I'm not really a fan.

    Is anyone going to go when Kris does his?
    Good morning, son
    In twenty years from now
    Maybe we'll both sit down and have a few beers
    And I can tell you 'bout today
    And how I picked you up and everything changed
    It was pain
    Sunny days and rain
    I knew you'd feel the same things...

    Re: WICKED Wednesday Video

    Emily Rozek was also the u/s for Galinda/Glinda in the tour when it came to LA in 2005. I got to meet her when we did the big MC Trip to Wicked in April. She was in the Broadway production of Thoroughly Modern Millie with my brother's good friend.

    I had to turn off the first number. The sound system was overpowering the voices.
    Anything listed on the park maps as an attraction is fair game for inclusion in the Rally.
    I cannot confirm nor deny the inclusion of any attraction in the Rally.

    Re: WICKED Wednesday Video

    I'm a bit surprised that Melissa isn't all too "popular". THen again, I'm not the biggest Broadway fanatic. Just a little bit.

    Re: WICKED Wednesday Video

    Didn't want to start another thread, so I'll post WICKED Wednesday 2 (July 11) here:

    Intro/ John Rubinstein "The Wizard": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G015RYIMI3k

    Julie Reiber "Wizard and I": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-fNb4hDig1I

    Emily Rozek "Popular": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QdK0ksTKDBs

    Adam Lambert & Julie Reiber "As Long As You're Mine": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UQq5UtwEUEQ

    Emily Rozek & Julie Reiber "For Good": http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5x5Ktftm8zA

    To my understanding, the last WICKED Wednesday will have "Wizard and I", "Popular", and "For Good" once again with a possible Ozian number of "What Is This Feeling?".

    PS- Anyone else having problems trying to edit their youtube video infos? And why can't I embed my own videos?

    Timing issues with pre-recorded backing aside, she really sold the song and tried a few variations to make it her own version.

    Well done.

    Well, I'm confirming they WILL add a WICKED Wednesday for Aug 15th. And it's still highly possible Eden and Megan may show up.
