Post Underrated/Overrated Glinda's
So I figured since there was an Underrated/overrated Elphaba, there should be an Underrated/overrated Glinda. Here are mine:

Overrated: Kristin Chenoweth
Underrated: Katie Rose Clarke

I have seen Katie 3 times and think she is amazing. I don't really like Kristin that much and I think a lot of people like her for her original role but she has a nice voice just not for me.

What do you think?

Overrated - Megan Hilty though I love her. Kendra Kassebaum
Underrated - Jennifer Laura Thompson(Hilty ripped off everything she did) and Christina DeCicco.

Amazing Glindas - Christina DeCicco, Annaleigh Ashford

Should Have Never Been Glinda - Kate Reinders.

Christina DeCicco is in my opinion the best Glinda she completely blew me away I was in awe!

I genuinely don't see everyone's problem with Kate Reinders as Glinda.
I've heard her called "too spazzy" - Megan Hilty, anyone?

Megan and Kendra have me in stitches at all the right moments.

Reinders sounds like she's on drugs.

Thompson bored me.

Chenoweth was only good for the voice.

Analenne Beachy had the entire package.

(Well, I can only talk for the last one, the rest I've saw on youtube.)

Annalene Beechey was Glinda standby in the original London cast - she left the production in early 2007.

Overrated: Megan Hilty
Underrated: Dianne Pilkington

I saw Dianne on her 3rd ever show, and since then she has really grown into the role, and does so much more with it than Cheno did. But then I suppose she's had other Glinda's to look at, and get ideas from.

Kristin is Glinda. She's not overrated at all because she's perfect for the role.

I must have seen Kate on a non-spazzy night because she was brilliant when I saw her. The most spazzy she got was her scats during Popular, and they were just hilarious.
