More white people, if I were to make a guess
Thank Goodness someone interesting is replacing Betty Buckley. Betty was a big disappointment in the show. No humor whatsoever. Carolie Carmello Rocks!Having seen the wonderful Bernadette, Bette and Donna.. Betty was a big let down.
I dunno if this matters, but theatres that are on the Year 2 schedule have been using promo pictures that include Lewis Stadlen prominently (the current Vandergelder); is it unheard of for someone to continue on into the second year of a tour?
I certainly hope they add a bit more diversity to the cast. Not that this will ever happen, but it would be nice if they add back the 4 ensemble member tracks that were cut from Broadway. To me having 4 less people was very noticeable.

bryan2 said: "Funny how every review for Betty has been great.

She had very little personality, very low energy, and the show had almost no humor with her. She, of course, sang the score beautifully but that was about all there was to her performance. It makes me quite sad to say this and it certainly doesn't make me a "hater" as I still am a long time fan.
Where do cast members stay for short seasons in different cities? Hotels/B&B/short stay apartments? Do they have to search the papers for each city or are there known places that shows always use? Do the principals get hotels included in their contract and do chorus get away from home allowance to cover cost of accommodation?Just curious as touring must be 'fun' visiting different places and certainly being young would help but just how tiring is it? Do you bus/train/fly between cities--that would change due to distance I realise..Made me think when I read re question of 2 years touring same show.
