Fact of the Day #7

At the end of "Defying Gravity" Elphaba conducts the orchestra and ensemble singers with her broom! That way everybody does the final cutoff at the same time and the actress playing Elphaba can hold the note for however long (or short) she wants to.


  1. I knew that one. :D That's how obsessed I am. By the way, I absolutely love your blog and think you are a great person and performer. You write so wittily, I enjoy reading it very much!

  2. You get conducting tips from Brian? That man does not get enough kudos. We are so lucky to have him in SF. He's world class, like Joe.
    3 more shows this weekend for me. I can't get enough. You are seeing some heartfelt scenes backstage, I'll bet. The regulars in the audience are just so sad, can't imagine how wrecked the cast is. Kiss Me Kate's "Another Opening Another Show" is running through my head...I go to Cole Porter for solace, often.
    See you on Market Street!

  3. Nice. What a cool (as in like "wow!") feeling that must be!

  4. I also think you're a fantastic performer!
    I got to watch you Memorial Day weekend and
    WOW! You were wonderful! I could feel the emotion you put into it and your voice...
    Outstanding, to say the least!
    I would love to watch your performance again!
    Do you know the dates of any/all upcoming performances?

  5. WOW! That is SOOO cool! I have to search for clips on youtube now!

  6. Wow! I didn't know that- must make you feel pretty powerful!! Just to say I adore your blog it's so witty and it's great to hear what you get up to at Wicked!!

  7. Wow learn something new everyday, didn't know that. Very cool though! :)

  8. What??!! I'm going to be watching for that tomorrow - hope I don't forget!
