The new Little Inez is Aja Marie Johnson. Danelle will leave the cast on July 19th. I'm sure Aja will be great!

Yep. I love the fact that she is from NE Baltimore -- just like Inez.

Wouldn't Danelle be a great Dorothy in the upcoming Wiz?

BrdwyThtr,
No coincidence. The Hairspray team has held many auditions in Baltimore and one they found one of the Seaweed understudies there.

She would make a good Dorothy -- the only problem is trying to match Stephanie Mills!

Stephanie Mills was AMAZING in the role. Who could ever play it like her?
I'm as jumpy as a virgin at a prison rodeo!

I was lucky(?)enough to see her on the last tour of The Wiz. She was great, but waaaay too old for the role. I would like to see her caome back for the revival as Glinda or Aunt E,.

Back to Danlle, I think she would have a totally different take on it.
