I don't know what cheek Broadway.com is putting their tongue into, but this was a waste of 10 seconds of my life. These choices are not clever, they're not intersting, they're just stupid.
If anyone ever tells you that you put too much Parmesan cheese on your pasta, stop talking to them. You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

Ariana as Cinderella is the only one that makes any glimmer of sense.

Looking at that picture of Lady Gaga, she would make a great Baby Jane Hudson

I wonder if Zadan and Meron would reproduce Cinderella? What ever happened to their Peter Pan production?

Ariana Grande as Cinderella is the only one that I can sort of see happening.

With the exception of her, Broadway.com are terrible "dream casters"...

It is getting so much harder to defend Broadway.com by the day.

I really would not be surprised if Rodgers and Hammerstein's Cinderella becomes a live television production, but it'll be the Broadway version, of course.

Those are all terrible ideas.

If they do a remake of Cinderella, I want Idina Menzel and Kristin Chenoweth to play the stepsisters. I want to see the stepsisters as being much older than Cinderella (but my original choices, Swoosie Kurtz and Ellen Greene, are a bit too old. Maybe they could do a concert vesion.)

I don't know if a telecast of the musical, a new movie based on the novel, or a TV series would be optimal, but after reading Patrick Dennis's two Auntie Mame novels, I'm convinced that the character needs a treatment closer to the book than the somewhat whitewashed, condensed and sanitized movie and musical versions.

Auntie Mame, as Patrick Dennis created her, was not a madcap matron "of a certain age," despite the charms of the movie and musical and madams Russell and Lansbury in the role. She was a charismatic bohemian who ages from thirty to fifty, not fifty to sixty-five (or older), as the role is often played. She is also self-deluding, a pathological liar, cynical and naive at the same time, completely narcissistic, and wonderful for these same reasons. (It's a fine fine line to make a protagonist who sends her ten-year-old ward off to what turns out to be a child-molesting school- then plays it off as a laugh- still lovable.)

Make her too earthy and crude, and you lose her charm. Make her too classy and sophisticated, and you lose the point. Auntie Mame is not the elite, nor is she nouveau riche- she is a liar, a cheater, a pretender and a fraud, but a completely charming one nonetheless.

Christina Aguilera and Adam Levine for Carousel. I can't.

I'd love a televised "Peter Pan" though. Or have "Cinderella" with Samantha Barks.

If we're doing the new Cinderella and not the original telecast/licensing version, Prince Chris/Topher could be a nice showcase for Michael Buble or Josh Groban, since both have pleasant legit/MT voices and are comfortable doing somewhat goofy/awkward comedy in the postmodern style.

Their photoshop "artist" needs to be put out to pasture. All of their castings are so ****ing awful.
