Can I be naughty and propose Sydney Lucas changing into... (this is just off the top of my head)... Beth Malone?

(yes yes I know they're terrible for the role just let me be a desperate loser).

Janet Decal who brilliantly played the role in Prince of Broadway would be the absolute best choice for this production! I hope they consider her.

I'd actually love that.

But... are you sure you're not her agent?

Definitely not her agent. Just really enjoyed her performance. Who else are we dreamcasting for this production? I'd love to see Raul Esparza as Peron considering he has a history with the show.

Does anyone know if City Center typically offers Access City Center tickets for under 35 yo for their gala presentations? I'm guessing not just because I haven't seen a code go out for it but wanted to check.

She and Mandy Patinkin reprising their roles would be incredible and unforgettable! Not to mention they could still do it just as good as they did 40 years ago!

Yes, you have to pay double what anyone over 35 has to pay x

Brilliantly!? Far from it...not happening

Vocally: yes.  

Physically: no.  

In a concert-style production: absolutely.

Nobody's making exciting choices anymore, Jordan. It's ridiculous.

This is a real letdown when you consider their casting for other gala shows. I like Solea but this feels like second national tour casting. Maybe there will be a bigger name for Che.

A little swash, a bit of buckle - you'll love it more than bread.
