She was incredible. Possibly the best Glinda vocally I ever saw.

Changed for good on Oct 23,2010!!!

FYI: She **WILL** be on again tomorrow, 1/11/19.
I caught the history-making performance tonight as well and I am quite impressed with everything. First, the show is in GREAT shape right now.

Brittney was met with RAPTUROUS applause the second the bubble came down, which brought a huge smile to my face. She has a gorgeous soprano and sung NOMTW and Thank Goodness quite beautifully.

She worked very well alongside Jessica Vosk and Jake Boyd as well as the rest of the cast. In particular, I thought Jessica and Brittney's harmonies sounded lovely during WITF and Defying Gravity.

Additionally, her acting was lovely. She had some great comedic chops, which were showcased during the train station/name change scene before One Short Day.

Brittney honestly didn't miss a beat... you honestly wouldn't have known it was her debut. She commanded the stage with a presence that some people who have played the role full time do not have. I am very very happy with tonight's performance and am looking forward to seeing her go on again in the future!
