I'm feeling really let down by the casting directors in regards to Elle and Warner.

I love the actress who plays Paulette, and they Delta Nu's were fun to watch.

Thoughts?

Some of the "American" accents are a little frightening (Pilar in particular).

I'm not really a fan of Elle's voice. Or Warner's for that matter. The most impressive out of that bunch was the girl playing Serena, in my opinion.

Hmm, I didn't like Duncan James. The girl playing Elle was OK but not great...
Buuut I really like the Paulette and the Delta Nu's. I wanted to see the guy playing Emmet too though.

It looks like it's going to be quite good :D

Sheridan Smith is phenomenally talented, but that was a really sub-par performance. I feel she hasn't really abandoned her "Audrey voice" yet.
Her singing voice can be incredible though.

I saw this last weekend, I was a little worried before I went as the children in need performance and the music video wasn't great. But I have to say that it was AMAZING, Sheridan and Duncan were WOW and the rest of the cast were amazing too! Sheridan, in my opinion was better that any of the broadway Elle's. She is a fantastic actress, Sheridan is a comedy, charater actress and pulled Elle off so well and I think people don't expect her to have such a good voice aswell, i'll admit she sounds different to the other Elle's that I have heard but I think Sheridan is Fab!!!
