Now that it is pretty much confirmed Kerry is leaving, let's start the discussion board for cast replacements.

I think she's leaving for Beetlejuice DC since she was in all the workshops.

Any guesses/hopes for who's replacing her?

I would love for it to be Jane Krakowski but I doubt it’ll happen.

I just think Ana Gasteyer would be the perfect replacement as she has a connection to the film and even played one of the roles already.

I highly doubt it will be a big name star- they just don't need that to pull sales at the moment.  I'm thinking it will be someone in the Broadway canon and not a Hollywood name.  Leslie would be a dream, how about Carmen Cusack?

She said she’ll be leaving in a few weeks so replacement will be announced very soon.

Is it really that much of a part to warrant a name? I see producers saving money and hiring someone to work for a lot less than Kerry was getting or someone like Betsy Wolfe would get.

I think Ben Cook is leaving the cast soon. On a Instagram live of Ericka Hennigson, The actor playing Kevin G, said that his boyfriend is making his Broadway debut in a role that's very close to him in mean girls, so I'm assuming he's taking over for Cook as a mathlete.

^Ben is going on vacation in a few weeks and Cheech's boyfriend has been hired as a vacation swing so he'll be covering while Ben is on vacation.

Tee Boyich (understudy Cady, Janis, Gretchen, Adult Woman) had her put in for Adult Woman today. Don't think she'll be the full-time replacement but maybe she'll be on for a few weeks while they find a replacement for Kerry. The show is doing great financially so I don't think they'll get a big name in especially for a smaller role, although I would love to see Lesli Margarita (provided they let her vlog for broadway.com during the run as well).

Margherita auditioned for Mean Girls and was not cast.

She tweeted:

"Fun fact- I auditioned for Mean Girls and after my song Tina Fey said 'oh...'"

It may be way too small a part for her but I would kind of love Laura Bell Bundy to do it for a little.

Have heard rumors Ashley Park is leaving for a TV show—any merit? And if so, who would we like to see step into the Gretchen track?

Simard is one of the finest character actresses to hit Broadway in the past decade. Can’t wait to see her in this!

They just announced that Jennifer Simard is replacing Kerry Butler I was hoping for Lesli Margarita but Jennifer Simard is still a good choice she was hilarious in Hello Dolly.
