yes! age is definitely not the biggest issue here.

on stage, covered with green makup, she can totally pull it off. elphaba's only a student for the first half of the musical, and besides, Idina was not that young.
my only issue would be the quality of her voice. it's beautiful because it's so pure! but Idina's voice is grittier and wilder, and that fits better with the character of Elphaba - so different from Cinderella, Kim, Eponine, Fantine - which are in my opinion Lea's best roles to date. having said that, i always want to see more of her, and if playing Elphaba would mean Lea back on stage 8 nights a week, then yes, i vote she gets hired!!
