I'd just like to say...  
that Alexia Khadime is probably my favourite Elphaba. As much as I love Kerry... so much, Alexia was all around, better, in my opinion.

WELL DONE ALEXIA! You were awesomeeeeee! :)

Yes, she is!!

And she is sooooo nice!

I can imagine she is. :) She's amazing.
And, seeing your icon, so is Helena!

She's my favorite too, but she's the only one I've seen live (although I've listened to many on YouTube). I'm glad to hear that a Kerry Ellis fan likes her. I've read in so many places where Kerry fans say that they miss her so much and they'll be glad when she returns to the London production. I feel bad for Alexia when I read things like that. Alexia has got an amazing voice. I wish that more people would give her a chance (but Alexia does have tons of fans out there). I also hope that she'll get to play Elphaba again soon.

I know, Kerry is amazingly good but people should stop hating on her just because shes not Kerry. They should put themselves in Alexias position... would they want to be disliked because she just so happens to have appeared in Wicked after Kerry? You'll always get this in theatre, but Alexia is brilliant, she has nothing to worry about.

Alexia is my favourite Elphaba by far aswell. Kerry Ellis has an incredible voice but I think Alexia has a totally different take on the character which I enjoy more than Kerry.

It makes me laugh when Kerry fans hate on Alexia because this time they KNOW Kerry is coming back. I feel so sorry for the actress who takes over after Kerry (as much as I love Alexia, I don't think she'll come back to the part). If it's Ashleigh some of the hating has started already :(

Me too, it's not really fair. I'm sure Kerry wouldn't actually want her fans to hate on someone else, it's not nice. Everyone deserves a fair chance.

It's silly and the bad thing is that it gives big fans a bad name. I'm not saying that everyone has to like Alexia but hating on her for no reason, most of them haven't even seen her.

She couldn't win either way. If she'd played it more like Kerry, they would have said she was copying her. She's played it totally different and still got panned by some people :(
Sarah.sarahxd on September 11th, 2008 02:54 pm (UTC)
Yep, it's all ridiculously biased. I say... GO ALEXIA! :) She was awesome, and a better actress than Kerry. :)
Kay: wicked | alexia → star qualityandthereyouwere on September 11th, 2008 02:59 pm (UTC)
I think she is too. Kerry has the voice, Alexia can act it better. They should just merge her and Kerry together, it would be awesome! Haha
Sarah.sarahxd on September 11th, 2008 03:00 pm (UTC)
Yeah they should, it would be like the perfect match! Although hats off to Alexia, she is a brilliant singer!
Kay: wicked | kerry → obviously adorablandthereyouwere on September 11th, 2008 03:03 pm (UTC)
She does, I actually think she sings certain songs better than any other Elphaba, especially I'm Not That Girl. Kerry Ellis owns Defying Gravity though.
Sarah.sarahxd on September 11th, 2008 03:07 pm (UTC)
For some reason I found Defying Gravity more amazing when Alexia was singing it, and I've seen Kerry twice. I'm going to see Kerry again in December so I'll see if she's better... cause I forget. :)
Kay: wicked | elphaba →  and i'll stand thereandthereyouwere on September 11th, 2008 03:09 pm (UTC)
haha, well I havent actually seen Kerry as Elphaba yet ;) I've seen her in Miss Saigon though and about a billion youtube clips. I've seen Alexia twice and Cassidy once. I didn't really like Cassidy :(

I'm going to see Kerry in December too. 13th :D And am going to Alexia's last show too..
Sarah.sarahxd on September 11th, 2008 03:11 pm (UTC)
Awhhhh. Well I've seen Kerry twice so far, third time in December. Oh and I saw her in We Will Rock You. :) I've seen Alexia once. That's all, I really wanted to see Kristin Chenoweth as Galinda. <3
Kay: wicked | glinda → good to see meandthereyouwere on September 11th, 2008 03:17 pm (UTC)
awww Cheno seems to be awesome! definitely one of my fave Glindas <3
