I saw the show last night in Philadelphia for my birthday, and this show just resonates with me more and more. The only major understudy on was Cherry Torres as Angelica Schuyler. She was fantastic!! Strong stage presence, great voice and wonderful acting. I'm surprised that Stephanie Park wasn't on as she's the stand-by.
One of the reasons for this trip was to see Josh Tower as Aaron Burr, as he was out when I saw Hamilton in Baltimore. His performan
@PopsDGE, not sure what the "?" is for. I was responding to your post about seeing the show in Albany.
It makes sense that Hannah is leaving as she will have been with the tour a year. I believe she started just after the Washington, DC run last September.
Darnell Abraham is the new George Washington in the And Peggy tour. He has a beautiful voice. So glad he has the role full time.

Sorry you missed Edred Utomi. He was actually on vacation. I totally understand you being disappointed. That's exactly how I felt when I saw this company in Baltimore in July. Josh Tower (Burr) was out, and the understudy just didn't cut it for me one bit. Jon Victor Corpuz is Laurens/Phillip Hamilton. I thought he was wonderful.
I'm seeing it again in Philadelphia in September. Hoping everyone is in!
My first final performance was attending the original production of 42nd Street in 1989. I then kind of made a tradition of seeing final performances.
One of the worst for audience obnoxiousness was for In the Heights. I remember Hairspray being quite loud. There were others that seemed like regular performances. I think one of my favorites was the original production of Ragtime. Audra was s
Don't forget the City Center production from a few years ago that had people speculating that there would be a revival. I saw Ford's Theatre production last year in DC and it reminded me just how bad the book was. I saw the original production when I was 15, but don't remember much besides Stephanie Mills.
I saw the Chicago company shortly after it opened. To date Josh Henry is in a tie with Nicholas Christopher as my favorite Burr, and Karen Olivo is my favorite Angelica. I hope to get out there to see it one more time before it closes.
I enjoyed reading your post. When the original production of Annie opened on Broadway, the comic strip was still in circulation. There was something tied-in that the audience could relate to. I remember the comic strip appearing in my local newspaper prior to seeing the show, but I don't think I read it per se.
You have such an amazing eye for detail to notice even Warbucks' stick pin was gone in the most recent Broadway revival. I definitely remember the miniature li
I certainly hope they add a bit more diversity to the cast. Not that this will ever happen, but it would be nice if they add back the 4 ensemble member tracks that were cut from Broadway. To me having 4 less people was very noticeable.
I saw the Angelica tour in Baltimore Saturday afternoon. I picked up a balcony ticket earlier in the week.
The only understudy on was for Josh Tower (Aaron Burr). I was very disappointed as Josh was also out the night I saw the Motown tour in DC a few years ago. Alexander Ferguson was the Burr understudy that day, and all I can say is that I don't think he is vocally right for the role. He also covers Alexander Hamilton which seems like it would be a better fit fo
