It may not be a done deal or signed but a friend works as a dresser at HAIRSPRAY and said Jerry Zaks cast Kerry as Audrey.


She will be BRILLIANT!!!!

Remember, a lot can happen during negotiations, so do not hold your breath until she signs on the dotted line and it is announced. I hope she does it. She will great in the role. Besides, it is about time she got to originate a leading role ina production.

I wonder who they will bring in to play Penny?? I nomminate Brooke Tansley and Alli Mauzey!

In a way, i am sad she is leaving. In a way, i am happy for her to get a great role in a show (even though Penny is a great role)

bring back Alli!

I was extremely excited when I found out Alice Ripley was going to be Audrey, and now I have surpassed excitement,I don't even think there is a word for it. This is awesome!!! I love kerry soooooo much! But, as I have come to learn with this production of 'Little Shop' there are no guarantees, so we'll see *fingers crossed*!

I loved Kerry Butler in Bat Boy as Shelley Parker. She was wonderful in Hairspray also. I'm excited to see her as Audrey.

No doubt. Kerry will do an amazing job. I'm just upset about not seeing her in Hairspray. I really hope whoever replaces her, if this does happen, is amazing.

SHE WILL? I have tickets for Aug. 15th! But Little Shop rehearsels begin at the end of July, so playbill.com said said she will have to leave by then.
