Mary Michael Patterson was new to the show when she started last year.

Does anyone know Sierra's last day?

Thank you, dreaming That's a shame, I was hoping to see her but can't make it into the city until late September.

Anyone know if she has anything coming up? I'd love to see her, but won't be able to make it for her POTO run.

Why is she leaving so soon? I know she's probably sick of the show by now but would she rather be unemployed? Does she have another job coming up?

She signed on for a four month engagement. I guess she has something else she wants to do.

She's been involved in Ever After for a few years, so I wondered if she might be continuing with that. However, that doesn't start for a while so. Maybe it's something else? I don't know.

Vaguely related to this...

I was watching a video...a behind the scenes video...a diary if you will...on some other Broadway related website which obviously shall go nameless...

But in it, Sierra is talking with tons of other women who have played Christine, but hints that she is sharing the role with another woman in the room. (Sorry, I don't know the casts well enough to recognize her.)

I may have misheard or misunderstood...but is there some sort of precedent where this would happen?



Unless this is a common thing, the only thing I could think of would be that the woman who was playing Christine was under contract when they signed Norm, but wanted a bigger name to play opposite him to help commemorate the occasion. So they signed and are promoting Sierra, but had to amend the other actress's contract or something...

Every Christine, from the fay the show opened , has played 6 performances a week with an alternate who does 2 performances a week.
The current Christine alternate is Mary Michael Patterson.

AH. Thanks.

I meant to indicate that as a possibility, but am not familiar enough with the realities of the show itself to know the day-in day out.

at least they do not use obnoxious stunt casting
