https://www.nytimes.com/2018/08/23/theater/laura-benanti-my-fair-lady-broadway.htmlAhh! Starts 10/23
I'm very happy for her. I'm less happy for my wallet since now I have to go back.
I FELL OUT OF MY CHAIR
This is probably because Ambrose got cast in that Apple series directed by M Shyamalan.
Take my money, Lincoln Center.
I think I just sh*t my pants. I can't believe this is actually happening. TAKE. MY. MONEY.
Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes yes
I think Laura will be great! I'm also thrilled that another "older" actress has been cast in the part! Proving that 39 is the new 19.

Attention LCT: I loved Lauren, but with Laura coming in... FILM HER FILM HER FILM HER
Well, I'll be darned! Good for her! I'd like to see that filmed myself. I wonder if there's any actual chance of it, outside our wishful thinking.
But what does Diana Rigg have to say about her 7 show week?
Where are the naysayers who slammed Ambrose for doing 7 shows a week? Do they apply the same standard to Benanti?I really wish it would be filmed with Ambrose in it. Her nuanced performance is a breath of fresh air that the show desperately needs if it wants to persuade the broader audience that golden age musicals are still worth going back to and digging into. Plus her nuances will translate pretty well on camera. Haven’t seen Benanti’s performance so I couldn’t say much about it, but I hope she’ll get enough time to explore the piece with Sher and the rest of the cast before going on stage.
I'm so happy for Laura! You're right that in the NYT article it stated Kerstin Anderson will be playing Eliza on Tuesdays... but Oct 23rd is a Tuesday.Right now, however, Kerstin performs as Eliza on Sunday matinees.
Also, Harry Hadden-Paton will be away from Sept 22 to Oct 21 to film the Downton Abbey movie. It'll be interesting to see Laura Benanti and Harry Hadden-Paton on stage on Oct 23 (or 24) given they barely had time to rehearse with each other. I understand they're both professionals though and this happens all the time but still I'm curious!

THE ELIZA WE DESERVE IM SO EXCITED
