I saw Brittney a few months ago and she was excellent. One of the best Glinda performances I've seen over the years.
Hannah calls out when she needs to. (Could be a Sunday Matinee, could be a Friday evening, but she doesn't have a pattern really). Ginna Claire is rarely out, and if she is, Brittney Johnson (standby) will post when she finds out.
I think it's pretty safe to assume that none of the Glinda or Elphaba or their covers will be leaving anytime soon.
As for Nessarose, I wouldn't be surprised if Jenny Florkowski took over until the January cast change. She's the typical temporary cover for Nessarose in recent years, but I hope Mili Diaz from tour joins at some point this year!

It was just a studio cast and I don't believe all them ever performed the full show together on stage.Natalie Paris is still in as Jane but I don't believe anyone else from the studio c

Jane Bruce has been doing a lot of events singing MJ songs, I wonder if she is going to go on first.

Does anyone know if Sam Pauly will be back when the show opens on Friday?"
Sam Pauly is fine and performed the full show a few times before the end of Edmonton! Courtney Mack is now an alternate and will take over the three tracks previo

I think it's the same cast as the Boston trial last summer, although I think Lauren Lotts has moved back to LA so I'm not sure if she's going to continue with the show.
Jenny is contracted as the standby until at least winter, but knowing her she will probably try to extend as much as possible (she loves this job!). Emily Rogers is the actual standby at this point because Jenny is going on so consistently and they have brought in an additional cover (Carla Stickler) to perform in her ensemble track.
I have to admit, having Jenny do most of the shows is kind of questionable, as she seemed to really struggle in the role vocally at the end of h
Emily Rogers is still on for Elphaba which means Hannah AND Jenny are both out, presumably sick. I think they are looking for anyone to sit backstage at this point. Christine Dwyer is off from tour this week, lay-off before the final stop of the Waitress tour. I wonder if she will make a surprise appearance over the next few days.
