That won't make her Popular

Broadway sensation Wicked is coming to London. It begins previewing on September 7th and so the PR machine is starting to crank up. This Sunday's Times Culture section has a big feature about the show and its imminent London debut. It mentions how Idina Menzel is the only OBC holdover for London and then it details the rest of the key cast before featuring this quote:

"They've hired real actors this time" says Menzel approvingly.

Perhaps a teeny bit of context might have helped that comment NOT seem like a total diss to all the real actors who she worked with during her New York run.

RIDIC. But are we surprised she said something this stupid?
