Poll Update + Hyde Park Podcast
Well the poll has only be running for about 4 days – we’re not even half way through – but we’ve already had over 60 votes and things are starting to take shape.
We appear to have three clear front runners – Sally Bowles (Cabaret), Velma Kelly (Chicago) and Elphaba (Wicked) – that are running pretty much neck and neck. If this trend continues, Rachel may just have to play all three. Do I hear anyone complaining?
However considering there is still over a week to go it’s probably too early to discount the closest 3 challengers. Nancy (Oliver) currently lies in fourth and is just 8 votes off the lead; I’ve heard a certain ALW voted for this one. Sorry too little, too late. Scaramouche (We Will Rock You) is just a couple of votes behind in fifth and if you fancy an outside bet Fantine (Les Miserables) is still within striking distance in sixth.
As it’s so close I thought it might be fun to try and predict which roles will finish in the top 4 and in what order. Here’s my prediction:
1st Velma Kelly (Chicago)
2nd Elphaba (Wicked)
3rd Sally Bowles (Cabaret
4th Scaramouche (We Will Rock You)
I’m afraid there are no prizes on offer this time but if you want to have a guess just leave a comment and if you haven't voted yet, don't forget to do so. Every one counts!
Also I hope everyone enjoyed the Hyde Park broadcast on Radio 2. The good news is that it's now available as a podcast right here:
