If that is true (and I do love the optimism) is gathering by June 7th in a very large auditorium how they will be presented?

I saw the last Saturday night show of Phantom on an absolute total whim and now I am so grateful I did. (Even sprung for the souvenir wine cup!) I really hope it comes back after this is all over. It would be such a shame if it did not.

Honestly with all this Coronavirus talk I don’t blame them if they never do it.

I am so glad this thread was started. I too think different types of actors should be considered for certain roles and we should be challenging what “type” means, especially today. (The Prom was great in all parts of this sense.)
I do know in some cases to keep costs low, sometimes prods will pick replacements based on the fact that new expensive costumes do not have to be made (so silly, I know,) and some shows (as mentioned) have dimensional requirements with traps/elevators and the

Annie Warbucks (different then Annie II ) actually had some decent songs in it. While no means as good as the original, it was not a disaster either and I believe it enjoyed some success off Broadway.
