any news if Benanti will continue after February or who the next Eliza will be. I’ll be in town in early March and may want to catch the show...I’m hoping she stays with it longer than announced?

Will they keep the show without her? I have a feeling Laura Benanti is as good as you can get for Eliza.

I heard Jordan Donica reveal on Seth Speaks that he'll be leaving the production at the end of the month. So it seems that we'll be getting a new Freddy Eynsford-Hill pretty soon.

I doubt he could step in right now but I’d love to see Jelani Alladin play this part! I think even Ari’el Statchel would be good. I hope they cast another person of color—always great to see diversity on Broadway!

I thought Harry was leaving at the end of January. Is it true that the next show after My Fair lady is a stage version of Mary Poppins?

Lincoln Center producing a revival of a Disney property (and one that only closed 6 years prior)? I can't imagine there is a single grain of truth to that.

SmoothLover is probably confusing the West End revival of Mary Poppins for a Broadway one.

It's hard to imagine a recent Tony winner -- or someone currently originating a role in a still-running show -- leaving to be a replacement in a small supporting role.

I completely agree but I’m just throwing ideas out there! Would love to see him in the part some day

Great casting! I loved him in Dolly when I saw him go on for Gavin. Excited to see him as Freddy.

Well, he’s a great actor in his own right. I found his portrayal of Cornelius the most innocent and lovestricken in the recent revival, and that works very well with Freddy.

I loved Christian's performance as Cornelius Hackl.  I'm sure he'll make a wonderful Freddy.
