Maybe the cast member didn't want to make it a big deal. I believe that they have a say on how they leave.
I can definitely see how they can transform it into Hogwarts. I mean, the staircase can be changed to make it look like the Hogwarts one. The restrooms could look like the school's and the stained glass windows can be changed into the mermaids. The lounge that they have can be made into Slughorn's chamber where they have the parties in.

Last day is Sunday, December 4th. I beleive Cats has signed Playbills & Posters along with the Carols of a Cure CD and opportunities to pay for a photo with whichever costumed cast member is collecting. Prices are unknown except for the CD which is $20.
Out of curiosity, when was the last time a female Asian (Pippa is half-Asian) actress would lead a Broadway show in a role that isn't racially specific (ie. Miss Saigon, Allegiance, etc.)? Is this the first time?
I wouldn't count Hamilton as Eliza wasn't the focus as Amelie is.
I saw it during previews. It was interesting with really great performances. I thought it was touching, humorous, somewhat thought-provoking, and insightful. I don't know if they changed the ending but when I saw it, it could have ended at one point but there was additional scene, which I thought wasn't really necessary.
