Didn't Ricky say he was having so much fun that he wanted to renew his contract? He couldn't get any further from Broadway with his new gig. Elena-back to BA? Michael to Siberia?

Mitch Jarvis for evita, Fred Armisen for Che, and a live Bulbasaur as Peron. Heard it here first.

If Antonio is going to be Che, Melanie HAS to be Evita.

So if they got Antonio, are we getting Madonna and Jonathan Pryce too?

You can't bring up a rumor and then sit back and watch it fizzle...come back and clarify! Inquiring minds want to know! :)

Who's rumored to be the replacements?
I don't WANT to live in what they call "a certain way." In the first place I'd be no good at it and besides that I don't want to be identified with any one class of people. I want to live every whichway, among all kinds---and know them---and understand them---and love them---THAT's what I want! - Philip Barry (Holiday)

Gabrielle Ruiz is going to be Eva. She announced it on Twitter.

^ No she is not. She is replacing Sydney Morton in the ensemble.

I was about to say that this was going to be quite a big jump for her career considering her resume.

I just get nervous posting rumors when the information is a little...fishy.

Gabrielle is a wonderful actress. She was my favorite Nina in In the Heights, and she was an understudy. Being cast in Evita is perfect for her, and I wouldn't be surprised if she was an understudy for the Mistress or even Eva. I hate myself for moving farther from the city if that's the case.

She WILL be replacing Sydney Morton, who is 2nd cover to the mistress.

I'm surprised that there is a feeling of excitement for Ruiz's casting. I saw her in HEIGHTS and in a cabaret setting and in both places, she seemed stilted and a little uncomfortable in her own body. I felt like she was pushing vocally on a lot of her top notes, though I thought she had some beautiful lines as a dancer.

To each their own, I'm sure she will be more than capable in this track.

Ruiz makes a great Diana in A Chorus Line as well. Is Sydney Morton going to Motown? I believe Sasha Hutchings who replaced her in Memphis is also in it.
