*Alli Mauzey was originaly cast, but will remain with the Broadway company in the role of Brenda.

Has Bruce gotten rid of his beard? or will he be doing so for the show? I can't picture him in a dress! I can't picture him in anything other than a t-shirt and pants.

I believe I remember John Ritter saying that he was going to shave off his infamous beard for the role.

they decided to keep Alli in New York? Who is the new tour Penny?

Thanks sammy, I forgot about Donna Vivino. I haven't hjeard any confirmation of her casting.
I am pretty sure they are casting the tour like the Broadway company with two standbys and an understudy for Tracy. Why I don't know.

KB,

I haven't seen a full list. I do know that the tour will be coming to San Francisco as part of the 2003-4 season.

I know... I get confused too! Is Robb in the Hiarspray tour or is he staying in New York with Zanna Don't? I love Robb. Such a baby faced talent.

I also heard Little Inez is the girl whos in the LA company of Lion King as young nala? Someone also rumored Fredi Walker from RENT as Motormouth Maybelle but PLEASE do not take my word for it... rumors are flying like kites in mary poppins.

Yes, I have heard the thing about the LA Lion King girl. Don't which one though. Fredi could be good. I too hope Robb stays with Zanna. I want to see him in it. If the Broadway casting is any indication, the only one I could see Robb as is Sketch. But I want him to stay with Zanna like I said. Are listening Robb? Stay playing the out homo -- not the closeted homo that is Sketch! (Read THE ROOTS -- Sketch and Fender are gay)

I have been collecting casting information as much as I can when I can.

it IS true though. two VERY flamey actors in a mostly gay cast play characters who end up having a commitment ceremony in the 80s -- it says so in the timeline.

I am pretty sure sandra DeNise will be the tour Penny. On her site, she lists the cast recordings of show she has been in -- including rent, Parade, and saturday Night Fever. I haven't visited there in a while, but I dd today and sure enough, the Hairspray album has been added.

AUSTIN MILLER.#16
Posted: 5/31/03 at 2:38pm
ha!
I found the website that has a copy of Austin Miller's head shot. Scroll down a little bit and you will see a bigger version than the one at the top of the page. This site is also useful for tips in doing your resume... not JUST to drool over Austin.

Ok, boys and girls...
