Was not expecting this (her returning to Broadway alone, let alone in this role) but I may or may not see this several more times. I adored her in Wicked, and she actually performed with Joey a few times as an Elphaba understudy! What a cool reunion.

It doesn’t look like Stephanie. Almost identical eyebrows, smile and nose as Lucie. She also visited the Broadway show with Carol King last month when Sara and Gavin were in. It’s her.

Even then I'd be reluctant to label Shakespeare a misogynist. He created a lot of women stronger and smarter than the men she was around. Rosalind in As You Like It.”
Just because they aren’t aware of the misogynistic effect/impact doesn’t mean it isn&

I recall reading that years ago (I think it was an article about Faye Dunaway being fired, and LA closing down) and often wondered why they didn't send it to Broadway, instead ?"
It’s not that ridiculous to inquire who/when Vosk is being replaced by. No one is bashing her or saying she needs to go, people are just curious. (I personally would love to see a new cast as I have not been impressed the last few times I’ve seen the show, but I’m probably the minority on that. #QuitRecyclingWitches)

I’m in the same boat - streaming and digital just isn’t the same as the beautiful packaging of physical media. My boyfriend and his friends constantly laugh because I have a medium sized DVD collection that I still add titles to every now and then.
Same goes for vinyl, but I guess that has been making a comeback the last few years.

I don’t think anyone in this thread said anything about her talent in comparison to visual promotion. She’s incredible, it goes without saying. It would just be nice if she got the recognition of a face playbill - especially since they HAVE an alternate cover for her stints, they just don&rs
WestEndGal said: "Do any other musicals do this? Have their understudy come on for the lead for 2,3,4 week stints before the new lead starts? I feel bad for Stephanie in a way. She must have played Jenna for about 3 months (if not more) of the last 12 and yet still only in her understudy capacity.And what does a girl need to do to get her own face on a playbill already? lol"
It’s weird that they have a completely separate playbill ready (of just the logo, and b

Oh, I love me some hate watching - but the RENT broadcast was so boring that I couldn’t make it past Today 4 U. Nothing exciting for even worth hating per say - just boring.

LOL at someone bitching and moaning about wasting their entire day for a taping. Clearly this is their first time ever being at one. Love tapings of TV shows (such as sitcoms) takes just as long if not longer.
You volunteered to go to a taping. Shit happens. You didnt miss anything important like a presidential election. You had an experience that very few people did, and who knows if footage outside of a few tweets will ever be seen by the public.
Why keep rehashing and redoing something that has already been preserved, especially when you cant promise that it will be actually as good (or better) than what weve already seen?
There are SO many shows out there that dont have either of these and should have a chance at a permanent reco

Yay! Please report back with your thoughts. I remember you did the same for another show (was it Sunset Blvd?) and I love hearing peoples first impressions of shows.
