Danielle Wade stands out as a star. You know she's comfortable with the role from being the standby on Broadway. Mary Kate Morrissey is also strong as Janice. Funny that Gretchen, Damian, and Regina were the acting roles nominated for Tony awards. Maybe their original performer is gave a lot, because the roles don't seem nomination worthy. They are kind
To be honest, I am a big fan of Jessica Vosk. I really like and her body of work. One thing comes into mind, remember when she was casted in Wicked, and there were people that we saying that she was casted for her large presence on social media? I wonder if that is the case, without her in the cast, would this show be on everyone's radar as loud as it is?
In thinking about Taylor, I thought of a few things:
1) In her 3 Broadway shows, she has played a high school student twice. I know Bring It On and Mean Girls are different characters for her, but I wonder living in the world of high school for 2 shows makes it harder.
2) I wonder if announcing her replacement months before she left, and selling it as an actual high school student will play a high school student got to her?
I assumed she was laughing because how many 6 year olds try something, and give it up months or weeks later. I never took it as there is something wrong with boys in ballet, but it was interesting and exhausting to see it blow up so quickly.
I am surprised that Aladdin is closing in London so soon. I thought it might run longer, or even move to another theatre. But, West End shows like to tour, and then pop back into London for a holiday season, or what not so that can happen.
