Well-known Tony Award winning Broadway actress/singer who is famous for originating the roles of Elphaba in the blockbuster "Wicked: The Musical" and Maureen in "Rent."
Recently began trying to go more mainstream by acting in films and releasing a pop album.
Has an extremely large, sometimes frighteningly obsessive, fanbase that sometimes consists of people calling themselves "fanzels" who seem to forget she is human and believe she is the best entertainer/singer/etc. out there.
Although very talented, she is to a great extent, overrated.
