Really hoping McPhee extends! I heard she's excellent.

I'd love to see Keala back in the show, or some truly inspired casting for Dawn.

It's interesting that we still don't have any info about a replacement/extension for Katharine since June 17th is now just a few weeks away! Hopefully we'll get news soon.

In the Playbill video she did, Katharine made reference to her run ending on June 17th and then said maybe a little longer so perhaps she's going to extend a little longer.

Desi Oakley has announced she is leaving Waitress (on instagram). Any ideas on her replacement? I would love to see Stephanie Torns become lead after seeing her as Jenna in February!

Who is the next broadway Pomatter? Drew Gehling is doing Dave at Arena Stage, so he can’t come back, and Erich leaves the 12th. Did I miss an announcement?

Dave is only running through August 19, so they could easily put an understudy on for a week and then have Drew return

Going to be in the city in a couple of weeks and I was thinking about getting tickets ...

However, I don't want to purchase tickets without knowing who will be playing either of the lead roles!

Any ideas for Pomatter or the interim Jenna??  I've heard Stephanie Torns is great, but again ... they haven't even announced that she will be covering the role for those couple of weeks!  

I guess it can be assumed that understudies will be covering, but it just seems strange that they haven't made some sort of announcement.

Henry Gottfried will be returning for a limited run, August 14-26, not sure who's coming in after him!

The past few times Stephanie filled in, they didn't announce it until really late. I would assume she's doing the interim between Katharine and Nicolette.

They need to have Torns play Jenna for longer than 2-3 weeks as a filler in between names. IMO, she's the best Jenna.

A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

Stephanie responded about it a few days ago via Twitter (short answer is yes)

I saw on Instagram that Jeremy Morse's (the current Ogie) fiancee Alex Tripp is joining the Waitress Tour. She didn't specify the role. Possibly Desi's replacement? 

I would love to see Emily Koch promoted to lead.

....and that role historically is one of the Jenna covers so maybe here too?

Isn't the crown just part of that "keep calm" thing? People in the comments are taking the crown to mean it's a West End transfer, but I don't know about that.

Then again, I feel like it's not just her going back in the show, especially since the next Jenna hasn't even started yet. Excited to find out.
