Jessie Mueller will be too old to do the movie by the time it happens.
The Sony leaks revealed their film rights to the show only kick in after its run on Broadway for several years so we won't be seeing this any earlier than 2019.
- Chicago Hamilton Dream Casting Jan 3

Chicago is about a two and a half hour drive from Madison, Wisconsin where Karen Olivo now lives. It's not inconceivable that she could end up in the production there. I'm sure working on something this major close enough to home to go back on her days off would be appealing to her.
Lord knows she'd be a dynamite Angelica.

Anika Noni Rose brought a lovely wit and pathos to Angelica in the reading of the first act at Vassar. They hadn't quite figured out the character's musical style yet at that point. I remember the transitions in "Satisfied" between when she'd rap and when she'd sing feeling very rough and jarring, as if they weren't quite sure yet whether they wanted it to be more of a patter song with sustained singing throughout (as it is now) or something else entirely.

I don't know that Phillipa Soo will want to jump into another Broadway show for a year with no chance to take advantage of the attention she's gotten from HAMILTON, particularly one she's already done in New York multiple times.
Chalk this up as another Broadway transfer for ART. The amount of shows that have come from Boston to New York since Diane Paulus's tenure is staggering. This will be the seventh show to move in her seven years there (including ONCE,

Brantley really hits the nail on the head about what Jennifer Hudson pulls off here: she makes Shug vulnerable and wounded.
It's a bold and inspired choice that reveals who the character really is beyond the glittering object of desire she's perceived as by most of the other characters. It illuminates a whole new dynamic in why the connection forms so deeply between her and Celie. You suddenly see them as two women who've had a parallel experience living their e

I so enjoyed her work in THE PAJAMA GAME and HAIR but she seems to have fallen completely off the radar in the last five years.

I echo the sentiment here that Sierra Boggess is woefully miscast on a variety of levels. From what I understand, the entire re-conception of the character was done by Andrew Lloyd Webber specifically with her in mind, which may explain the misguided logic at play.
Rosalie starting the show as a soprano ingenue to evoke the sophistication of the prep school world isn't a terrible idea, but it only works if there's a successful pay off when she transforms later on. U

The LOOKING movie will film in San Francisco for a month from late October through late November. As others have said, they're in pre-production now.
(SPOILERS) Considering the events of the second season finale, it's perfectly plausible that Russell Tovey's role in the final installment could be minimal. If time has passed in the world of the show between then and when the movie picks up, there's a very real possibility he could not be in it at all. (/SPOIL

The interview posted in this thread is from May. THE WILD PARTY didn't happen until July, so logic would lead one to believe Foster is talking about a different Broadway-bound project.

Scott Rudin may want to position the show that way to avoid competition with HAMILTON, but based on how it's been described, they'll never get away with it.
- Dream Cast Meryl Streep Aug 9
2015, 12:36:24 PM
I find the continued casting of Streep in every prime role for an actress over fifty a real disservice to her colleagues, many of whom would be far better suited to many of the roles she plays. I would have preferred to see Frances McDormand in DOUBT, Sissy Spacek in AUGUST: OSAGE COUNTY, Melissa Leo in RICKI AND THE FLASH, Emma Thompson in THE IRON LADY, etc.
It's telling how you don't see one male actor playing all the good roles that come along for a certain age range.
