The current lyrics are an expansion of the original London production, more cynical than the original lyrics and not as good. In my opinion, Roscoe's appearance in the Loveland sequence is a big mistake."
I thought as much. The lyrics are so tonally at odds with the idealism of L
Some of the differences are interesting. In Loveland, the dialogue Roscoe says is something completely different to what was said in the last Broadway revival recording. Was that in the original script?

Very neat that they cast a female Olaf; would love to see her in action. I assume this means Patti and Caissie extended their contracts? Or theyre staggering the replacement announcements.
They announced the tour right around when the Broadway production closed, but it was probably a “we’ll see if it happens” situation. It is strange there have not been more official updates since then, though.
Will this be equity? I imagine it’d be hard to cast the guys with Equity performers, much less Non-Equity actors.

Well, he’s a great actor in his own right. I found his portrayal of Cornelius the most innocent and lovestricken in the recent revival, and that works very well with Freddy.

I’m kind of surprised at all the dislike towards Amanda’s Glinda. She wasn’t the most consistent singer, for sure, but when she was ‘on’ her voice was lovely. I truly liked all of her acting choices and thought she was a great Glinda (but hey, I saw her at the beginning of the year. who knows what changed).
If we’re talking worst Glinda, I’m dissapointed no one said Laura Woyasz. Now that was bad

Also saw the show tonight in Tampa. Wow, wow, wow! I will never stop saying what a fantastic production this is. The touring audience was a bit apprehensive at first, but as the show went on the laughs kept coming. While the Broadway production was overall tighter in regards to stellar uniform performances by the whole company, everyone in the cast is absolutely incredible. The ensemble killed it, and the orchestra was on fire. Betty was a great Dolly, and Lewis was a fine Horace. But the stando

Sierra and Jessica should both be held accountable for their actions. Trying to play a Latina character when they aren’t is a problem. Nobody is going to be up in arms when Norwegian princesses are being played by two non-Norwegian white women, because Norwegians have not been typically discriminated against the way Latinos have. It’s that simple.
Also, Jessica sounds like a potential candidate for Yente in Fiddler. Can’t wait to hear her “The Rumor/I Just Heard”- I hear her riffs real
Cody Simpson to make Broadway debut in Anastasia as Dmitry Dec 2

Referring to stan twitter as “the scum of the internet” is a bit...much. It’s not perfect, but the truth of the matter is that these kids are upset a washed-out pop singer replaced an established actor in a role that requires established acting and singing. Cody can not do any of those things. My Petersburg was lowered three half steps down, and while adjusting the key to a song is a normal thing, the role was written that way. Dmitry requires a tenor to hit an A5. By all accounts, Cody was flat

The Prom was adorable. A little heavy on the synth, sure, but it looks like so much fun. Also, props for the representation and sending middle America into a raging Twitter spiral.
My Fair Lady did great! Laura looks like she’s having the time of her life; the ensemble work in the show really does stand out.
Fearless is just such a boring song; the cast is doing their best but I zoned out constantly. A step above their Tony performance so that’s...nice?

Ivy in On The Town. She sings a bit in Carnegie Hall Pavane, but it’s not really supposed to sound good- she’s studying singing, but is doing a poor job at it.

Per Katie’s Instagram post, she’s only Glinda until April. If Katie and Jessica are finishing their contracts together, Jessica would be short of a one year contract since she started in July. Since Ryan and now Katie are both leaving in April, it isn’t far-fetched to think Jessica might leave with them so a new pair of witches can start together.

Kate Marilley was on for Beth today. Courtney Balan has also been out the show for a few weeks, so Kate Marilley has been covering her track; however with Kate understudying Dee Dee, Gabi Campo stepped up to cover Courtney’s track while Kate went on. Gabi does not cover the track either, so it was a bit of a Mean Girls situation.
