Welcome!

 If you love Elphaba as much as we do then this is the right place to be. Our community center is located right next to the Emerald City on your way to Shiz (when passing Broadway don't forget to fly right up) so make sure you stop here from time to time.

What we want our community to be about? Well first of all - it's Greengirl Sisterhood so all thing about actresses who had/have been playing Elphaba all over the world. News, informations, graphics, random things...hey, why don't you just check our Community Info, my pretty? :)

Why "Greengirl Sisterhood"?

The idea of the name came from the current broadway Elphaba - Julia Murney - who says [...the women who played Elphaba have formed this special bond ] "we are all in this sort of  Greengirl Sisterhood together" .




 The name caught my name and I began to look for a community dedicated to "Elphabas". I found some really good ones mostly fanfiction related so I though I would create all new community with lots of videos, pictures and interviews - stuff we all love so much. Fanfictions are welcomed as well of course!

Green will be around for a long, long time!

anger is one letter short of danger

First, I do really love the idea of this community. Buuuut, and I don't mean to be rude or anything, I hardly think it's appropriate to group Kristy Cates, who put years into Elphaba from original understudy on Broadway to playing her fulltime in Chicago, with Courtney Corey, who has gone on maybe five times in the role. Kristy gets loads of fandom attention, too, and has had probably more fansites than anyone save Idina. I mean, Julia has had, what, two ever? I can think of at least three Kristy has had just within her time in Chicago, along with her official site, two LJ communities, and a Myspace group. It just...doesn't seem fair at all, when Dee or Victoria, who have been there for significantly less time and seem to have fewer fans within the online community, are given full attention.

I'm just curious as to why you chose to do that. Btw, not knocking any of the ladies mentioned here, just...am confused.

Thanks for the comment and I know what you mean. I will try to explain.

I didn't choose any of the Elphabas myself but with the help of wikipedia. I think it's only fair to put on the "first places" actresses who are currently playing Elphaba on stage (Julia, Eden, Dee, Victoria, Kerry). Then Idina - not because how many fansites she has - but because she was the OBC.

To explain Stephanie and Ana - they were original Original US National Tour and Original Chicago cast.

I must admit, it's hard to keep track of all Elphabas since they are so many. I put Shoshana there because I knew she has many fans. Unfortunately, I forgot about Kristy (i admit it) because I don't know her that well.

I also updated the userinfo with info about Kristy (along with photos) and links. Thank you for pointing that out. :)
