Since we know that Andrew Rannells is replacing NPH, who would you want to replace Ms. Hall as Yitzhak?

Can't they just clone her so she never has to leave?
That's right! Underscore mother-fu@#ers!

I remember people saying Morgan James was up for it initially (and also Lindsay Mendez? but that might have just been a rumor on here.)

Ehh. I don't blame her for changing her name. Carvajal sounds like V cream.

Morgan James has a kick-a$$ voice, but not sure if she is right for this score

I've always thought Leslie Kritzer would be an incredible Yitzhak, though I agree that Lena Hall will stay with the production past Neil Patrick Harris.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

Max Crumm, because when I first saw Lena onstage, I actually thought it was him for a second.

Yeah Max, I mean the crazy people who think A woman could play Hedwig should also go for a guy for Yitzhak!

I'd imagine Lena will play out the run, barring some really spectacular offer for her. A little on the nose, but Lea DeLaria would be a hoot.

"A little on the nose, but Lea DeLaria would be a hoot."

I'd never thought of Yitzhak as being an unbearably annoying person with a shrill screech of a voice, but I guess it could work!

Lena isn't leaving with NPH. It sounds like she will at least be there through Rannells's scheduled run. On the show's Facebook page this morning, they announced that a new block of tickets had been released for the show "starring Andrew Rannells and Lena Hall."

DeLaria is too obvious a choice, but she actually has a terrific voice. Get her jazz CD and find out.

Hell no to Lindsay Mendez. I know it's something that she can't really control and it's a matter of taste, but I cannot stand her tone.

Adrienne Warren would be absolutely fantastic.

Lindsay Mendez has bad tone but Adrienne Warren would be "absolutely fantastic"? Oof.

I didn't say she had bad tone. I said I don't like it. There are people who live for her voice, I'm just not one of them.

Exactly how many functioning illiterates do we have on this board?

Lena's not going anywhere. As another poster said, unless an amazing offer comes her way, she'll stay with the show for its run. (Well, for at least a year, if it keeps its momentum.)
