Just heard that Heidi Blickenstaff is going to play Diana in Weston Playhouse's Next to Normal this summer. I think this is really interesting casting. She was actually on my list of people I would like to have seen take over for Alice back in 2010, before Marin was announced.

The theatre website lists the director as Michael Berresse, so it is likely that he would cast Heidi. The website does not list the cast.

LOVED her in Addams, very excited for this!
Some people can get a thrill, knitting sweaters and sitting still. That's okay for some people, who don't know they're alive!

>> "I bet she's gonna be fantastic in this. "

Wanna know something really weird?

On the night that Gene Kelly died, I was performing the Don Lockwood role in Singin' In The Rain. During the bows, I got the most amazing applause, EVER, in my career.

Seeing your "Gene Kelly" avatar, and connecting with my personal history, has created an unnatural affiliation with YOU.

Here's where it's REALLY "weird":
When you respond "in agreement" to my posts, I feel like GENE KELLY is approving my thoughts.

yup... it's weird.

I hope whoever is cast as Gabe isn't in his late 20s, as Heidi reads very young. (She looks early 30s to me.)
