42nd STREET Logo question
Posted by FrancisGumm 2004-04-08 22:20:19


I was wondering, who are the girls on the logo for the revival? i saw it recently and noticed that one of the girls on the ensemble looked a LOT like one of the girls on the poster. are the girls on the poster real people or drawn? anyone know?

pretty sure thay are just models/actresses that were hired for the logo way before the show was cast or in production. just so there could be a familiar logo that stays constant with the show even as the cast changes. like Mama Mia! That chick in the wedding dress is not even a real person I think. Just an artist's rendering I suppose.

They are all facsimiles of Loretta Swit. She was supposed to be the original star of the show, you know!

I agree-they probably are models hired for the poster and logo. But I was told that the Mamma Mia girl was an ensemble member of the original London cast; I could be wrong, though.
