Betsy as Carrie! What an absolute dream! I'm so looking forward to her Mr. Snow and seeing how she makes this character her own.

That ensemble is pretty spectacular!

But that doesn't matter, because we're all here. And with all of our differences we have one thing in common. We're all gay.

I was so happy to see his name. Moving on but not moving out... right back at the Imperial!

A SIX week preview period for a revival? That's...odd.

^nice catch! Must be an extremely reimagined production or Scott is giving jack time to get it right.

Okay, so I'm not the only one who thinks six weeks is cray cray. There's gotta be something new or inventive happening with this one...

We shall see if this production will be a return to form for Jack O'Brien or if his long-running losing streak from the past decade will continue.

It's likely sooner than you think. Jessie left Waitress FOR this and start prepping for it as well as that film she was announced that nobody seemed to know about lolz.  My best educated guess is that Betsy will leave somewhere in mid to late fall.

^I remember some people saying she would be leaving in October, so I wonder if that has any weight.

I also wonder if scott is doing a workshop for this like he did with Hello, Dolly. Any idea?

Every time you post, you're mentioning O'Brien's "losing streak". Calm down.

Unless they squeeze a show into the holiday season, could it be a lavish set? The Imperial is already torn to pieces so why not create something amazing? The extended preview period could be more for the tech aspects so they avoid Groundhog Day problems. Just a thought.

I may have mentioned it several times before, but not every time. Plus, it's still true that Jack O'Brien has not delivered a critical darling since The Coast of Utopia.

I'd rather see Jesse repeat as Carrie and Betsy as Julie.

But it is a very strong cast.

Hopefully O'Brien puts more effort into this than his phoned in, community theater level production, of The Sound of Music. It wasn't bad per say, just dreadfully uninteresting and paint by numbers. 


My name is neither "adam" nor "greer."

Really looking forward to this and I pray Jack O'Brien does great things with a great cast, but somebody has to ask. Do we pay full price or do we wait for "inevitable" discounts? My wallet is trying to hide.

I was thinking the same thing. I'm not convinced that Jessie has the right voice for Julie and Betsy certainly does. But I'm excited regardless.

Same. I wish it was a Little Foxes situation. Still, Betsy Wolfe and Alexander Gemignani have me a lot more excited about this. Still waiting to see if My Fair Lady will top this casting. I'm still excited about Joshua Henry and hoping for the best with Jessie and Renee.
