[…she was not surprised Bela only lasted one season] - Not after I noticed the fan reception of her. I have to be honest, I found the negative fan response a little overwhelming. Katie and I both felt that. It was like, ‘Give us a chance!’ It’s very much the boys’ show though, and I can see that fans would be afraid our coming on as recurring characters would change the dynamic of it, and that it was a protectiveness more than anything. I get that. But it was sad, because in the sequence of us actually making the show, I think people were just starting to warm up to her [in the episodes on the air] as she was leaving [in the episodes being filmed].

I think Bela was just a young woman trying to make a living and finding some kind of reason in her world. She was a little damaged. I tried to bring an essence of her putting on a front that wasn’t really her true self. I think that Bela definitely had to create a persona that protected her from real strong connections most of the time. I feel as we came to know her more, she became more interesting.

Wicked is structured like a queer 1950s Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. It follows many narratological and musical conventions of the “golden age musical” but places two women as the central couple. Like the heterosexual couples of mid-twentieth-century musicals, Glinda and Elphaba begin as enemies and competitors, as opposites in voice and temperament. Constructed as a butch- femme couple, they eventually merge vocally through the show’s numerous duets. By the end, they express their love for one another and promise eternal commitment in “For Good,” as they sing, “Who can say if I’ve been changed for the better? Because I knew you, I have been changed for good.” In this duet, they cross voice parts: Glinda sings alto, Elphaba sings soprano, and they finish the song together on middle C. Wicked’s very project is double divadom.
I can’t be bothered to give a damn.
This jump is the most majestic I’ve ever seen.
