I think Cantone has guest hosted "The View" the most. He's usually their emergency host anytime some backs out at the last minute.
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.

I'd be very surprised if Bernadette does this! I love her, but she seems to value her privacy too much for a job like this. Granted I'd be giddy if she was on.

I don't think this would be a smart move for Menzel. She has a very "odd" personality with inconsistent almost flaky behavior. I don't think that would translate well on television, and it may give her the wrong type of exposure. I can't imagine her having very interesting opinions either.

For the longest time I wanted to see what Loretta Devine would be like on something like The View so I'm hoping we see her!

May I nominate Laura Benanti? She has TV credits, and is both beautiful and hilarious. I think she could be a fun host.

I don't know if Bernadette is well-spoken enough or has interesting opinions either :-/. I must say I've never been terribly impressed with how she interviews.

In my eyes, Laura Benanti can do no wrong. I think she's hilarious. As long as it doesn't prevent her from acting, I think she'd be great for nearly any hosting duty.

I agree with everyone here! Especially qolbinau. I've seen some Youtube interviews and she came across… well not how I picture her to be in private. Obviously there is nothing wrong with that! They just need to chose extroverts.

And YES to Benanti!

Maybe Bernadette can finally sell her condo if she hosts the View

What do you mean by flaky behavior? (I don't think Idina is right for this, anyway)

I agree disneybroadway, she isn't right for that. I thought of Audra McDonald, she always meshed well with those ladies when she was a guest.
Four Simple Rules for Attending the Theater 1. This is a nice night out. Dress accordingly. Like, no sweatpants. 2. When you enter the theater, turn off your phone. All issues with phones will be avoided this way, & you won't be verbally accosted by the cast, crew, & other patrons. 3. I did not pay dollas to hear you talk or sing. I paid dollas to see & hear gorgeous men like Norm Lewis, Ramin Karimloo & Joshua Henry. 4. Unless you have medical issues, don't eat. The wrappers are loud, & your disgusting munching is even louder. You aren't at the movies or a barn dance, baby.

I highly doubt Idina would ever do this beyond being a guest host.

While I wouldn't describe her as flaky, she is certainly a tad socially awkward at times and doesn't seem to be super interested in pop culture. Politics, yes. But yeah, she's too much an introvert in unfamiliar situations.

I'm all for Benanti!

Don't forget little to no filter at all. Which is adorable for her fans, but I would imagine a bit of a challenge for her team.

Yeah, elsewhere I mentioned Benanti. She is adorable and funny and quick on her feet. And, not afraid to make a wee bit of fun of herself.

I remember really enjoying Christine Ebersole when she guest hosted a few years back. She'd be a great choice.
