Why cant Evan Hansen be a bigger boy? I was watching the All 4 Evans Sing video and thought why is does this character have to be some skinny angelic faced boy? Does that help us be on his side more since his actions are terrible? Why cant the mothers in the show be thicker ladies? Or the dads etc. Just

Disney likes to move people around or use them elsewhere so I'm sure we will see both ladies again soon. I wonder if we might be getting some type of stunt cast for one of them. I'd love to see Christy Altomare as Anna if there isn't a stunt cast."
I think Stunt Casting could be possible (if it keeps Frozen open a few months more) but t
Kara Lindsay also tweeted to Page 6 (I don't know how to copy it because I'm an idiot), something along the lines of "We are women in our mid-thirties who have been trying to have a family, let's be more sensitive about that". I personally don't see it as slut-shaming, but Kara did mention the headline was strange.

When Caroline Bowman missed for an extended amount oftime, it was known that it was due to some sort of injury and Christine came in as a temporary replacement. Alison was outfor a bit on tour I believe and Dee temporarily replaced. All this to say thatHannah certainly isn’t the first Elphaba to miss a substantialchunk of performances, but something about this just seems off. This reads more like the Cais
She broke her neck doing "Into the Woods" about 2 years before Wicked opened, but it took her a while to recover. Glinda's not the most strenuous role physically, but there are a lot of stairs she would have to navigate, which I personally would not want to deal with potentially getting hurt again. I see her more as an Elphaba, which she definitely wouldn't able to do, I don't think. Just speculating though.
SchuylWERKsister said: "I'd believe that Zach and Cody (heh) were called back, but it's the Colton Ryan bit that gives me pause. Is he tall enough? Literally, Fiyero does have a height requirement of 5'11" or taller, I believe, and Colton doesn't read that tall."
Not true. Curt Hansen, Michael Seelbach, and I’m pretty sure Kristoffer Cusick was under 5’11”"

I'd say anytime between tomorrow and the day before the show, it's hard to tell with Bway announcements. I'm betting on sometime in April. But now that we have an idea who Elphaba is, I say we use up more and more space on this thread figuring out who the new Fiyero is! And who's gonna replace Mariand and Erin after the tour even though they just started, lol, j
James Kerrigan2 said: "I'm starting to have doubts as well about whoever started the rumour about the new Elphaba and since that other post stated about how the new Elphabahinted it on InstagramI don'tunderstand why they can't tell us who it is.
We have been so patient with this and didn'teven consider the possibility of the blogger is wrong and the new Elphababeing ChristineDwyer (please come back)."
I have a feeling Jessica will be leaving with Ryan, I think she'll be going on tour for her album. And the fact that they already have a new Elphaba lined up, whoever she is, leads me to believe it'll be sooner rather than later.
