This could work. I'd go back to see her as LP.

Really? I didn't think that Pippin would resort to stunt casting so soon.

Same here. I didn't think they'd start stunt casting right away. I hope Patina extended, at least, through the spring. Wait until May until Scherzinger comes in.
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.

Not a fan of her pop music work, but the few things I have seen her do pertaining to theatre (“Rent,” her performance of “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”) has made me itch to see what else she can do. I think she could be great in this role and I hope this pans out.

On the bright side, at least they're starting the stunt casting (and, for that matter, replacements in general) with appropriate choices.

I was hoping for Jennifer Hudson, but this works too

Please NO! There is no way she can pull off the dark side of the LP. She can only be sexy.

Ok, but can she act??????? I pray that this is all chatter and nothing else.

How can people respond so viciously without even knowing what she can do?

Yes. She can act. Did you see her in the Hollywood Bowl's concert staging of RENT? Keep praying.

Her reviews in Rent were overwhelmingly positive. So, she can sing, she can dance, and she can act. Seems like a legit fit for the role. Does that assure she'll be great in this role? No, but this is star casting rather than stunt casting.

I just don´t get why a star would want to be a replacement. Would have made more sense for her if she was the original leading player of this revival to be eligable for the tony.

I think she can sing, but I don't find anything appealing or personable about her. She was better as a Pussycat Doll, when she was an unofficial lead and nothing else.

NOOOOOOO! I have nothing against Scherzinger but Patina is not ready to leave Pippin. she is so good as the Leading Player and because she won the Tony I think she should stay in the show at least until July like Billy Porter in Kinky Boots.

Wish she wasn't going in as a replacement but whatever gets this girl to Broadway where she rightfully belongs!
