Depending on when Moulin Rouge moves to Broadway, I'd be curious to see if Olivo actually continues with the project. She's already slated to appear in a regional production of Fun Home in fall. The rehearsals for which might conflict with Rouge.

Thanks for doing this, MannPhan. Perhaps add the out-of-town tryout city?

I read some thread on here about a rumor it won't come in until 2019-2020 because the same lead producer (Global Creatures) is doing King Kong and they don't want the shows to compete/conflict. Anyone know if that's true? If it is, seems like a long time to wait between Boston and Broadway.

I thought Christopher Fitzgerald did one of the early workshops of Beetlejuice? Did I make that up?

Olivio in FUNHOME? 

In what role?

Strange casting whatever role, maybe middle Allison's girlfriend?

The Josh said: "I thought Christopher Fitzgerald did one of the early workshops of Beetlejuice? Did I make that up? "

He did, but the most recent labs had Alex Brightman. Not sure if he was just a filler for Chris, though

“The casting notice is seeking talent for two available roles: the title bio-exorcist, described as “the life of the party and the deadest guy in the room,” and Lydia Deetz—the gloomy daughter of the family that moves into a home inhabited by the ghosts of its previous tenants—who must have a “great rock belt/mix voice.” A previous reading starred three-time Tony Award nominee Christopher Fitzgerald as Beetlejuice”

He did early workshops, but Alex Brightman just played the role in the lab that's happened this month, so he's most likely to be doing it.

Thank you! I'll add him! I keep wondering if any alumni from any ALW shows will be involved with this .Sierra Boggess wouldn't surprise me but I believe she's doing a show in Hartford during the lab.

So Butler and Pudi were the Maitlands, and the Deetzes were Leslie Kritzer, Sophie Ann Caruso and... did we get names for Charles Deetz and Otho Fenlock?

That casting notice is from a year ago? I don't see why it's relevant now.

Someone at My FAiR LADY seated near me tonight was speaking to one of the creatives on the Cher project. I only overheard part of the conversation, but she said Lena Hall isn’t continuing with Cher. Sounds like she booked conflicting television work.

I know Harry Connick Jr. is doing The Sting at Papermill.

It hasn't been spoken of in a while, but there were Bat Boy revival labs with James Monroe Iglehart as Dr. Parker, Kerry Butler as Mrs. Parker, and Jeremy Jordan as Edgar/Bat Boy.
