I always thought that Vanessa Williams would make the PERFECT Velma Von Tussle. Yes, I know she’s African American, but if you put enough Makeup on her, she could easily pass for white.

Because in a show about racism, you want to HIDE an African American?? I get what you mean TYPE-wise, but the statement is a bit odd.

If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Well, if Vanessa Williams was ever going to play Velma, that’s what they would have to do, and it wouldn’t take much to do it. LOL

Colm Wilkinson as Pontius Pilate in "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Good choice.

Jennifer Damiano as Mary Magdalene in "Jesus Christ Superstar"

Good choice.

Raul Esparza as Judas

Fantastic choice!

Matthew James Thomas as Jesus in "Jesus Christ Superstar"

WHAT ARE YOU DOING?! WHAT, WHAT, WHAT ARE YOU DOING? The kid's voice is way too thin for this part. And it's not written for a pop-sounding voice. You need a real rock and roller. Fans expect a certain type of voice in this show; that's why Glenn Carter (in 2000) and Josh Young (in 2012; different role, but you get my point) did not fly well in terms of word of mouth. American audiences for JCS don't tend to respond to a restrained approach. American audiences want their Jesus and Judas to be willing to cough up a lung for them in the course of the show. This kid would sing like Hunter Parrish if he did that.

"Raul Esparza as Judas

Fantastic choice!"

Why thank you!

Also, this is gonna sound totally weird but if Next to Normal had been written a good 30 years earlier, I think Betty Buckley and/or Elaine Paige would've KILLED it as Diana!

Elaine Paige as Madame Morrible
I'd like to clone Ruthie Henshall and have a performance of "Chicago" with her playing Roxie and Velma

And bless her soul so sad she's gone but I think Laurie Beechman would of made an amazing Norma Desmond

I wish "Wicked" was written in the mid-90's because I think Alice Ripley would have made such an interesting Elphaba. I also think Betty Buckley would have made a terrific Elphaba. Bernadette Peters probably has the soprano notes to have mad a great Glinda back in the day.
