I think Janna was ripped off, she was the logical choice, she fits the personality and voice of what Maria should be. I have tickets for Oct. 3 and Dec. 20 to see the play. I do not plan on going now, anyone interested in the tickets?

Mirvish said to the audience to pick the Maria best suited to see and that will bring the people. I think Canada voted incorrectly. Elicia has a strong yelling voice, she should be casted in Cabaret and not Sound of Music.

we all loved janna but she was the second choice from the start. elicia has the best singing voice of all the girls and was also the prettiest which i am sure played a huge part in the decision.

I was shocked when Gavin announced Elicia as the winner. Janna was clearly the better singer and actress. She has a unique beauty that makes her really stand out. Elicia is just very wishy-washy compared to dynamo Janna. I also have tickets to the show and feel very disappointed to hear Elicia will be starring as Maria. It should be Janna!!
