I am interested to see what she will bring to the role. I've been a fan of her's for a long time.

She looks fabulous! I know she can sing, but I wonder if she has the chops for a role of this caliber. All the best to her! Wish I could see her in the show!

I know, it's up there with Mama Rose and Lovett.

Yeah. None of the caliber of Sister Act.

I think the role is one of the most difficult on Broadway vocally. Just in "Fabulous Baby", she has to belt an A flat at one point, and then hold out an F on the final note, if I'm correct.

Not gonna lie, I think Raven-Symone is hilarious-- just maybe not always intentionally. I think she'll do a fine job in this show. She has a pleasant singing voice and is a rather adept comedian. Sister Act is pure fluff, and as long as she looks like she's having a great time onstage, everything will fall into place.

"I think the role is one of the most difficult on Broadway vocally."

At least someone on this board has an IQ over 80. Seeing as how I was talking about her singing, I did mean if she was up for it vocally.

Big fan of hers as well as the show, very excited to see her take on the role.

It really would be great if Anneliese van der Pol could play Sister Mary Robert one day.

I wonder if they'll have to change any of the keys for her.
"The gods who nurse this universe think little of mortals' cares. They sit in crowds on exclusive clouds and laugh at our love affairs. I might have had a real romance if they'd given me a chance. I loved him, but he didn't love me. I wanted him, but he didn't want me. Then the gods had a spree and indulged in another whim. Now he loves me, but I don't love him." - Cole Porter

FYI, as per their Facebook page, Rashidra Scott will play the role of Deloris the week of March 20-25.
A Chorus Line played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013.

I'm glad people are excited about Raven doing it. I'm really happy she's going to take the role. I was worried about how the show would do when Patina left but I don't think I have to worry now. I really hope I can go see her!

I wonder if Raven will tour?

^My hunch is that that's the plan. They'll run it through the end of the summer on Broadway, then launch the tour with Raven ("direct from Broadway") in the fall.

Why would you be concerned about Patina Miller leaving and effecting the box office? she is hardly a household name.

Now if Whoopi Goldberg left or Daniel Radcliffe or Harry Conick Jr or Ricky Martin left...
I'd understand your fears.
