Very excited for this! Anyone have an idea when they'll announce the rest of the cast or at least Sandra?

No idea, but I'm pretty excited. I'd like to see who they cast in the Albert Finney and Jessica Lange roles (I assume Butts is playing the Ewan MacGregor role).

Also, I wonder if the Marquis might be the home for this and a placeholder type of show might go in there (a limited run).

Dreaming - I think you mean the Ewan McGregor role.

Brain freeze. Thanks for the correction.

It doesn't make much sense for it to come in right after it's Chicago run -- it will miss being eligible for the Tonys -- I would think they'd wait AT LEAST to the fall or even next spring to bring it to NY.

(But of course, what the heck do I know? I'm thrilled to see Butz in anything!)

Can't see this working as a musical, but than again I was not a fan of the movie. Hope to be proven wrong.

Heard Lippa singing one of the songs at a recent concert. I though it was pretty bad, but maybe it's just because he's not a great singer?
