Just wanted to say this final Jenna jams was absolutely incredible and Jessie is in fine voice. Made me want to see more of Alison and Jessie together. They have great chemistry and would make a beautiful sister/best friend pair on stage.

KathyNYC2 is correct - Jessie’s debut as Dawn was while Stephanie was Jenna, between Nicollet and Shoshana’s runs.

It would be amazing if they could get Jessie or Sara back to close the show.

In other news, per Jordin’s IG Story, they’re handing out flyers with her on them today. I wonder I’d she’ll get her own playbill or if they’re sticking with Allison?

Already happened when Nicolette was there. I think theres some pictures out there, but Jessie was Dawn.

Jessie went on with both Stephanie Torns and Molly Jobe. Never with Nicolette. If it would have happened before it would have been posted everywhere.

I've heard good things so far, but that was from one person. I haven't seen her yet.

Brandon Kalm just posted on his Instagram story that will be on as Dr P 9/26-9/28 and from 10/30-10/6.

Mark is getting married and is getting some time off. But he’ll be there on the 29th? Ok. Go figure.

No...Waitress is dark on Wednesdays unless it’s a weird holiday week schedule. One show Mon, Tues, Thurs, Fri.. then two shows on both Sat and Sun.

Either they’ll switch it next month (as they did for Alison) or they’ll wait until the next Jenna.

I haven't seen any reviews anywhere yet on Jordin Sparks' performance and was wondering if anyone here has seen her yet? 

I really wanted to catch it during Alison's run but wanted to avoid all the Colleen/Todrick chaos. Also curious how the vibe and stagedoor is now. Now I'm debating on whether I should try and see it with Jordin or wait for the next Jenna. Still holding out hope it will be Jessie.

It's very easy to assume that it will be Sara as the last Jenna. She'll be finishing her tour by then and plus, she is the heart of the show with her songs. 

If it's Jessie, it'll be a pleasant surprise for sure.

Marisa Wallace just said she's leaving West End's Waitress, so I hope the means she's closing the Broadway show.

Sara's tour ends on Nov 26th, and Jordin's last is Oct 27th. Unless Jordin extends, they'll need to find another Jenna for at least another month, if Sara were to finish up the show. Not sure Jessie would step in for such a short time. Maybe Stephanie Torns. Or another stunt casting.

Saw Jordin Monday night. She was fantastic. I was pleasantly surprised. My eighth time seeing the show and the 7th Jenna I've seen, and she was easily up near the top of the list.

It was announced that Jordan extended her stint as Jenna until November 24. Could Jordin extending until November 24 mean that Sara will return after with a week or two of Stephanie Towns playing Jenna in between?

I think these leaves the last 6 weeks as a possibility that Sara returns. If not maybe Jessie comes back to close the show? If anything else, we'll get Torns, which would be a delight to have her close the show.
