Both Burns and Roscioli are not only "two good friends," but they are also two recording-breaking Elphaba's in their own right. Burns holds the record for longest-running Elphaba on Broadway, and Roscioli holds the record for most performances as Elphaba throughout North America. I implore you all to go on YouTube and listen to some of the clips from their performances in WICKED over the years--you will NEVER be the same after listening to them!!
