Out of curiosity, since we're talking about Hamiltons... has anyone seen all three (Lin, Javi, Jon) and can comment on the differences of the three?

That's too bad, sounds like it would have been a fun souvenir."
Actually, judging by other responses from Twitter, it seems like he wasn't on the cast insert in most of the Playbills. Maybe they made just a couple for Lin to have. I mean, if

Aww... he wasn't on my cast insert from Sunday night. I still had J. Michael Finley, the regular Loud Hailer, listed.
It was my first time seeing the show with Finley in that track/role. However, when the Loud Hailer came on, I was thinking to myself that it sounded off. Like, Finley is a ValJean understudy so I was expecting a deep, more classical sound like Aaron Walpole who was the Loud Hailer previously. Lin's not that. LOL.

Call_me_jorge said: "Would the operating costs for the shows have gone down? Or did they still have to pay the actors for the full week?"
Considering that a good number of company, crew, and house staff were already at their respective theaters when they decided to not have the Saturday performances, I hope that they are still paid the full week.

- Tour to Broadway Jan 25
2016, 05:23:31 PM
For the current revival of Les Mis, it started at PaperMill, went on tour for like three years, went to Toronto, and then went to Broadway. A good handful of people who did anything in the Pre-Bway productions were brought in for the Broadway production. Unfortunately, some who did a lead role on tour was put in the ensemble and just understudied the role.
They keep bringing in people from the tour back into the Bway show.

There was a Newsies panel? I thought it was just a dance class/session. Wasn't there but based on photos that the cast posted on basically all of their Instagrams...
Dan DeLuca, Stephanie Styles, Jeremy Greenbaum, Andy Richardson., John Michael Fiumara, Aaron Alban
- show exchanges because of weather Jan 22

herewegoabc said: "How could Hamilton possibly offer exchanges unless they schedule the exchanges for the fall?"
They might have some house seats available earlier if the patron is really convincing that they can't see it later. That said, they may just offer a refund if it isn't doable.

ChairinMain said: "I suspect that either Mayes or Pinkham might join the tour for the Los Angeles stop in March. What do you think the odds are of that occuring? "
IMO, I don't think that the odds are very high. Both John Rapson and Kevin Massey are doing a swell job in the roles and Jefferson and Bryce aren't necessarily large names to warrant them headlining the tour to get people in the seats.
- When Understudies Perform Jan 20

If swings don't receive additional compensation when they go one in an ensemble role, do they if it's a split track? Or vice versa, when a single regular track is split into three tracks?
For example, in Les Mis, actor Joe Spieldenner is in the ensemble, with featured tracks of Grantaire & Bamatabois. When he's out, three different people are listed in those tracks: one for Grantaire, one for Bamatabois, and one for his ensemble (aka just "John D

@z5 said: "I have a seat in MEZZ row E center aisle? How good/bad is the view for this show?"
I was in row F in the Mezz and it was fine. The set is two levels, with a couple of characters who walk around in the audience during Act 1, which you can only see when they're along the front row of the orchestra.
It's better that you're more centered than on the sides.

Actually, I believe that kaybay2 was at Jon's second performance as there was a performance yesterday and Lin & Javi were still out.
That being said, kaybay2, have you seen the show before? I'm just curious because of the "wasn't even the same show" comment.
