That is when theatre does finally re-open.

But who could play Ms Rose?

Audra. It just needs to happen already.

The only issue with the great Audra, she doesn’t need another Tony.

I adore Audra but I know she won’t belt it. And Patti belted to the damn rafters. Unbelievably thrilling. I am fine with my Patti memories for now.

If only Judy and Liza could have done it together.

I just can’t think of anyone really with enough star power who’s right for the role to make a revival successful. There’s plenty of musics theater greats who I’d kill to see do it, but they won’t sell tickets.

Audra was a very good guess. Have you been peeking at Scott Rudin's revival to-do list? (Allegedly.)

I think Sutton would be the obvious choice to take on the role next.  She would be AMAZINGGGG

Chenowith!!!

Yeah, I know but people said the same thing when Bernadette's name was originally floated.

She's a fine actress and insistent and sexy little dynamo.

It's not the kind of thing you find on Google, let's say. This is more in the realm of gossip (at least unless or until it's confirmed).

I quite like Audra’s chest voice and we haven’t heard it in a while, not since Marie Christine really.

Agree with Jordan on this point.

Kelli O'Hara I would have thought could do the role very well, however as Jordan said great Broadway names don't shift tickets.

I feel like we won't get a Broadway production anytime soon. Has any recent production made a true profit? It seemed like Bernadette Peters' production kind of showed the decreasing interest in the show and Lupone's production was created due to the fan demand and the idea of Lupone playing Rose was too good to pass up for us fans, but it wasn't necessarily a hot ticket outside of diehard Broadway fans.

I just don't think there's an actress out there that would make a new production too good to pass up.

Whatshisname said: "Toni Colette"

The general masses have no idea who she is, even though they see her films and work.  She’s one of the many actresses who people don’t know their name.  

TONI COLETTE in GYPSY doesn’t draw the power as HUGH JACKMAN in THE MUSIC MAN or BETTE MIDLER in HELLO, DOLLY!  

“.. who’s Toni Colette?” 

“...she starred in MURIEL’S WEDDING.”

”... in what?”

No.  Just no.

Just because you have a loud voice doesn't make you suitable for Rose.  JHol can't act her way out of a paper bag and mugs like there's no tomorrow.

I feel like it’s Donna Murphy’s turn. Can we just have a production with a revolving door of stars getting six week runs? Then we can all win!

Streep lacks the vocal chops to do the role of Mama Rose justice.

I'll never understand why Andrea McArdle has never been cast in a revival.
