I would imagine that this thread likely didn't gain much momentum when it was first posted, because no one knows or has any ideas. We have wishes and desires, but I don't think anything more.
This might also be affected if McPhee's show gets cancelled and she has more availability.

"I think it has been renewed."It hasn't. Not yet, at least.
Do they need a star to make it to Labour Day?
Well, Betsy Wolfe was their biggest star for a while and it was fine. Even if having a name helps a lot, Sara Bareilles' name being attached will always help no matter who is starring, especially considering the JCS attention she's gotten.Strangely, I know they had auditions for Dawn in September, but that must have been before they knew Caitlin was extending. She just hit 1 year and 6 months a few weeks ago, so she could've just started a new six-month contract (or signed another full year contract after the first one, meaning she'd leave in October). I don't know, I've over-thinking this.
"It hasn't. Not yet, at least"That is odd, decision is usually made by now. Ratings have not been good especially after moving to the 10pm slot. I believe they have enough episodes for syndication already so it will be interesting to see what happens.
I'd really like to see Megan Hilty do it or Carmen Cusack.
I know there is no word on Katharine's replacement yet, but todaytix tickets go up by like $10-$20 post McPhee leaving so I guess they have a slightly bigger name lined up?

I reallt want to see Laurel Harris (former Elphaba/understudy Carole King) step into the role at some point. She’d be wonderful. However, I feel like they’re going to try and get another big name in there.
I think Rachel Bloom of Crazy Ex-Girlfriend would be a big name that would draw in fans of the show and I think she'd be great in the role if she wanted to do Broadway.
Well, CBS cancelled McPhee's show today. Wonder if this means she'll stick around.

I dunno if the role is "comedic" enough for her, though.
A lot of people on twitter were talking about it
