kchenofan's computer is broken right now. This is her fridge. Now, you can leave a message, but say it slowly, so I can write it on a post-it note and stick it to myself.

If she's not busy, then maybe Laura Michelle Kelly.

Laura Michelle Kelly will NEVER do the role again considering that she had a falling out with Cameron a long time ago.

I've heard about the new Bert (God help us all), but I haven't heard even a peep about the new Mary.

it's not "Who did I hear", it's "Who do I know for a fact unless something falls through."

Let's just say that he is known to the Broadway community aned last starred in a show with a crazy teeny bopper following.

Isn't Groff a little too young for Bert?

I don't know if Christian Borle would make a good Bert but he was amazing in LB and I'm seeing the show in November so I really hope it is him because he is very talented. The only thing that bothered me was that he never stagedoored but whatever.

The next Mary Poppins should be Priscilla Lopez! I would pay so much money to see that, seriously.

Am I the only one who thinks Stephanie J. Block might make a brilliant Mary?

Yes

But going along with the whole Christian Borle idea...what about Andy Karl as Bert?

Andy Karl could certainly dance the role.

Stephanie J Block is looking for work. Isn't she the new "go to" girl everyone here says should go into anything, no matter what it is?

WishingOnlyWounds2, I don't think that Block would make a good Poppins. She doesn't have the proper voice. Poppins is more of a soprano role and judging by Block's singing on The Pirate Queen CD I am willing to bet that she is more of a mezzo if anything.

She was able to sing Belle. Stephanie played the part at Hollywood Studios.

The singing starts around 1:33 and she was able to hit all the notes.
