I think she could have walked out with a mask of one of Kate plus 8's children on and people would've said she looked too old. Seems like people went into this gunning for Cheno.

She looks great and this is still the show I'm looking most forward to during my trip at the end of the month.

No not early 20's but certainly not her full 41 years. And if I'm correct, there is no mention to her age in the text. Though I do understand the impact it loses for some if she's not early 20's, I don't think it's pivotal.

Nice use of Bway.com's patented 3 times sharpened picture technique.
The same pictures not sharpened.

It's definitely implied based on her job, her family situation, and the fact that Sheldrake jumps from young secretary to young secretary. If it doesn't make a difference for you, good for you; that's your prerogative. However, it just seems completely unrealistic to me otherwise.

^ Exactly. I didn't hate Chenoweth. But yes, she is too old.

The pictures that TF4 posted are closer to what she looked like in the show. Clearly not in her 20s, but not too old in my eyes. She would definitely look younger if she had some meat on her bones.

I actually thought Megan Sikora looked older than Cheno, based on the pics.

It looks good though...I'm just not sure if I wanna see it without Bennet's choreo.

Can I go ahead and pull the old whipper-snapper out here and say, how old was Ethel Merman when she did Annie Get You Gun? Almost forty. What about opera singers? They play roles younger than them all the time. Any of them who play Mimi in La Boheme are much older then the young girl. Several of the women who played Elphaba are also much older than you would expect Elphaba to be. I don't care if you give me flack for this, I'm just saying.

BTW, the pictures look great. And so does the cast.

Not to split hairs here, but opera is a completely different ball game. Few younger girls have the vocal chops to pull off some of those demanding roles. Plus, the spectacle and size of opera productions tend to cover up any age discrepancy.

And as far as Annie Get Your Gun goes, that was written FOR Merman, so that's an exception. They wouldn't write it for her and then be like "oh just kidding, you're too old."

It may have been written for Merman, but there's a reason the Lincoln Center revival with Merman was referred to as "Granny Get Your Gun."

Whatever, she looks beautiful in the photos at least. I am DYING to see this show.
