That must be a rumor. Patti once said she called Trevor Nunn when they were casting the revival initially and he never called her back. Nunn was very strict about casting each role age appropriately for the initial cast, but obviously he was more leniant with the replacements.
Patti wasnt offered Dot. Sondheim told her on the audition "no belting" and she was basically like "oh ****." I'm pretty sure it's in her book. She did turn down The Witch because she wanted Cinderella. That's such an unfortunate missed opportunity.
My main ones:
Elaine Stritch as Madame Rose (almost happened) and Miss Hannigan (apparently was in talks for London.)

I believe that she has been quite vocal in her support for Hillary over the last few horrific months and I'm going to believe, until proven otherwise, that she is performing in support of the American public and not for our joke of a President-elect.
