He may be talking about the beds in Popular. She sits on it as it is sliding onto the stage. Or maybe they're talking about when she enters at the beginning of the Wonderful scene.

Melena's lover at the beginning gets to do most of those:


Act - Check
Dance - Check
Sing - Maybe Not
Fly - Nope
Come out of the floor - Check
Be green - Check
Be the lead - Nope
Go on moving scenery - Trapdoor?
Wear a wig - Possibly under the hat
Wear a fantastic costume - Check. The green outfit is pretty snazzy.

I'm pretty sure that's a pre-recording of the Wizard.

I imagine that the lover is double-cast as The Wizard? Seeing as they are the same person? Or is that another thing they changed from the book? Or am I just posting something stupid, as I haven't actually seen the stage show?

Glinda, for sure. She actually has more to her than just the girly stupid character. Although she doesn't really show it until the end. And nothing beats her costumes! :D

The actor for Fiyero does the short part in No One Mourns the Wicked with the lover, but I think the singing is recorded.

I don't think so, as Fiyero is in the ensemble for that whole scene - I think it's the Fiyero understudy.

I think Felix is right...judging from Oliver Tompsett's Video blogs, he's Ensemble for the opening (as was Adam Garcia) so i would speculate that the understudy is the one who takes on the dancing.

I'd love to be Elphie but I'd fit better as Nessarose i guess I would also love to be portraying her character.
