May 09, 2009 is a date that will never be forgotten by any Wicked fan, a date that will go down in the annals of Wickeds history. That date was Kerry Ellis' final performance EVER. She has been one of the best Elphaba's in the whole history of Wicked and it saddens all fans to see her leave.
I was browsing through youtube for any highlights of the performance and the comments were unbelievable. People were saying how they were actually crying during the show especially during the speech.
Her final performance was one of the best performances of WICKED ever. Every song was outstanding, every song was memorable. Probably the most unforgettable song was "As Long As Your Mine". The last line of the song is "For the first time... I feel Wicked". For Kerry's final performance, she said "for the LAST time... I feel wicked" everyone gasped and then a roaring sound of people yelling and cheering followed.
Her Defying Gravity was perfect. That was the time when you can say that she really defied gravity. And it was so sad during the speech after the curtain call because Dianne Pilkington (Glinda) was crying.
