If anyone goes to see Cinderella this weekend (these performers' last shows) I'd appreciate any reports on whether they receive any special recognition as they finish their runs. Thanks.

God this is a HUGE turnover in cast. I am anxious to hear what the show is like in some new hands.

Yes, it is a huge turnover, five out of the nine featured roles. It should be really interesting to see what comes out of it. I did hear (or read?) a recent Carly Rae Jepson interview in which she mentioned something about the new cast members putting their own touches into the show. I'm not quite sure what that will add up to and how different the show will (or won't) be.

I saw it yesterday (the Friday performance) for the first time. Nothing special happened at the curtain. Osnes did get applause once she appeared to begin the first act.

I didn't even know that this was their last weekend... I knew Jepsen was starting on Feb. 4, so I guess I assumed that Feb. 2 was Osnes and company's last day.

Well ... it's over.

Thanks for the memories!

According to a photo on Instragram, they had a speech for the people who are leaving. And Laura and Santino teared up during 10 Minutes Ago

I was at the show today. Wonderful performances all around (as usual), and a very nice speech from Vicki Clark after curtain call. The swings brought out flowers for the principals leaving, which I thought was nice. I'm grateful to have been at such a special performance and can't wait to see everyone's future projects!

Just found a YouTube of the Victoria Clark speech. The videographer gets somewhat emo...

I found a better video of the speech and the last bows. So sad to see the 5 cry

They filmed Friday night's performance. 3 cameras in the orchestra.

There was also a good number of the creative team and/or producers in the audience. Saw William Ivey Long walking around a great deal at intermission.
