"No dream cast the revival og cast is perfect as is" @doorpheuss

"Celia Rose Gooding and lachanze as ti moune and mama euralie" @taylorsnavi


"Oh gods, oh gods, can we have Hailey Kilgore and Alex Newell reprise their roles?!" @sabrina.cagampan

"If we don't get to experience Hailey Kilgore as Ti Moune in HD quality, then what's even the point?" @madelynsykes

"The og cast! They were amazing and can't be replaced" @antovergaravi

"Im looking forward to a mix of some returning cast members but also some new stars who will dominate their roles" @ameels.mae

"I know first hand that hiring the Broadway company isn't always what Hollywood is seeking, and I get it. But anyone who can perform a show 8 times a week (sometimes 9, 16-19 times in a row during holidays/award season) is a ninja unicorn and they can do anything. This revival cast is why we tell the story and I sincerely hope they are sincerely considered." Josh Lamon

"Thou shalt not forget Hailey and Alex" Penny Knock
