A link is always appreciated.

They don't often 'announce' cuts. They hope no one knows the difference.

Boring cast. Only know Christy Faber and Bryan West. But, should be good!

No giant flying High heel, a smaller more compact Priscilla.

Is this non-Equity?

No, it's equity! And did they cut the opera part if they don't have the shoe..?

They have the shoe. It just doesn't come out over the audience.

Saw the show in Toronto, Pre-Broadway. Thought it was fantastic.

From what I remember, Logistical cuts would probably be a scaled down version of the shoe during the opera sequence (Couldn't go over the audience), if they are looking to cut costs then the flying could be cut (they could just sing downstage), giant staircase at the end.

I don't know if they would scale back the bus, as it is supposedly one of the stars, and constructing a new one might be very expensive. I think the current one can be taken apart into four sections anyways.

Hope the costumes stay the same though, as I thought they were brilliant when I saw them.

Surprised to see Wade McCullom as Tick. Interesting that two of the regulars on Submissions only will be on tours this season, the other being Jared Gertner.

Bryan West should be good, and I believe ensemble member Alex DeLeo is still a student at CCM.

I thought Bryan West was pretty great when I saw him in the role on Broadway. Good for him!

Bryan West is incredible. Loved his Fiyero too.

Ugh, Andrew Chappelle. Guess we're subject to yet another performance of him majorly mugging on stage.

Anyone unfamiliar with Wade McCollum's work will be happily surprised to see him in this. He's a brilliant performer with excellent comedic timing and a very powerful voice. Would love to catch him in this if possible.
