CBC's Maria Problem Solved!

Well, after all the drama -- the controversial Elaine Overholt, the flying laptops, the missing Simon Lee -- Canada solved the problem of Maria and voted for Elicia, my favourite Maria starting from several episodes back. It's strange to think it's suddenly over, yet there is an Act II, which will begin in October at the Princess of Wales Theatre. That's when we find out if we voted wisely as Andrew Lloyd Webber asserted tonight. I was impressed that Elicia could sing even one note in the title number after she learnt that she was the chosen Maria!
