Does this go back to the "casting without appearance" thread. Salonga and Arden as siblings? I like it! I'm glad they're taking some risks.

I mean...I know we've been making fun of the roll-out...but it's a pretty damn good cast for a concert.

I'm so annoyed by that terrible thread, but you're right. This cast is impressive!

We can be very Catholic about it, and deny it ever existed!

Just take a cleansing breath!

Who is playing Sarah? Do we know yet?

Nope... At this rate, I wouldn't be surprised if it's Nikki Renee Daniels. Apart from Lea, those already cast give me a reaction of "well, of course. They fit that so well."

No Sarah yet, no Evelyn yet.

lol, Jordan.

Michael Arden is going to sound GORGEOUS.

As annoyed as I was by the existence of this concert because of that ridiculous thread, I'm really sad to miss it.

Also, psst, it's Felciano.

MenzelManiac, you can make it up to us for that other thread by release a recording of this concert. Whaddya say?

Haha, all I can say is that there is not going to be a professional recording released of the show. That's all I'm able to say. Outside of a private message.

I bet Arden will be spectacular. Nice to have him back on the New York stage for the first time in what seems like a while.

As for the believability issues, I'm very of the mind of "it's a concert". If we've had a South Pacific concert with a fifty year old Nellie and a black Emile, then we can do a Ragtime where Salonga and Arden play siblings.

Hopefully, Arden will find time off from his ANGER MANAGEMENT schedule to do more singing and New York Theatre, where he belongs and is loved. Many of the recent BARE reviews mentioned his performance. The same could happen when PIPPIN opens.

Nikki Rene would be a great Sarah, she might become very busy with her happy "condition".

This is turning out to be an exciting cast, please Stafford, my friend, don't screw this up!

Though I doubt it will happen, Anika Noni Rose as Sarah would be an absolute dream.

There have been a lot of folks who've expressed interest in tickets via PM, so I wanted to pass along this LivingSocial deal we're running. Hopefully this means more of you can come out to the concert. Cheers!
