Don Scardino has given up acting is now a director. he has done many many episodes of Law and Order and its spin offs.

Bonnie Franklin has also given up acting and is now a TV director.

Elizabeth Allen which one did you mean? Elizabeth Montgomery's mother or the one who was in Do I Hear Waltz? The former I believe has past away and the latter retired in 80's after doing the soap Texas and appearing in 42nd Street.

Loni Ackerman did CATS for 8 years from 92-2000. Does a lot of cabaret work

Barbara Harris (not the voice casting person of films)has basically retired from acting and teaches it somewhere I remember reading.

Bonnie Scott I remember reading that people have tried to track her down over the years but she seems to have disappeared after How to Succeed. (She was replaced by Michelle Lee)

Inga Swenson of course was on Benson for many years and then guest starres on various tv shows. She is now well into her 70's and is most likely retired.

There are so many one hit wonders out there. They get to star in a hit show and sometimes win a tony award and then disappear

MaryAnn Plunkett has done some recent acting gigs with Law & Order but it seems she's doing the mom thing.
I think it's a little early to put Heather Hadley in the MIA arena.
Michael Maguire was theren for the final Les Miz but I believe he has also moved on from acting.

And one name that has also left the business is Jerad Shea from Passion. Did you know he was the original choice for Joe hardy in the Damn yankees revival (yes..over the Jarrod Emrick)?

I would just like to state that Ann Crumb's version of "Be On Your Own" is by FAR my favorite (and yes, I own all three recordings).
"You! You are the worst thing to happen to musical theatre since Andrew Lloyd Webber! And you, well, I just plain don't like you."

Heather Headly is now a R&B and Dance Diva.

You cannot go to a bar in the Washington DC/Baltimore area without hearing a remix of her "He Is" or "Wish I Wasn't in Love with You"

Jarrod Emick hardly disappeared after Damn Yankees. The Rocky Horror revival, Full Monty in London and now Boy From Oz. Not to mention the regional work and many readings in which he's participated in NYC.

Scott Wise had featured roles in State Fair, Goodbye Girl, Fosse and Movin' Out. He is starting to choreograph more.

Hinton Battle had a stint in Chicago not too long ago.

Joan Diener is probably still playing Aldonza somewhere. She found her role and never stopped.

Linzi being a British performer, many Americans haven't heard of her. But then, many hadn't heard of Ruthie Henshall and Maria Friedman until recently, either and they've both been around for quite a while.

Jere Shea was not just first choice for Damn Yankees, but was in the show when it premiered out of town. Jarrod did not join the show until it opened here.

Crazy bump I know....but does anyone know anything about Joe Lynn's career pre- and post-Dreamgirls? He portrayed both Tiny Joe Dixon and Jerry in the original production, and died a few years after the show closed.

As far as Joe Lynn, I could only find that he was in Timbuktu! and the Equity Library production of Raisin in 1981

Heather Headley and Tonya Pinkins are both still very prominent. Headley is now a big R&B and Dance Diva. She also recently started in the West End in The Bodyguard, which she received an Olivier nomination for. Pinkins is still very prominent in the Broadway scene. Since Jelly's Last Jam, she has performed in Chronicle of a Death Foretold, Play On! (Tony nomination), The Wild Party, Caroline, or Change (Tony nomination), Radio Golf, A Time to Kill, and Holler If Ya Hear Me. Never of them she be considered as forgotten.

Carol Haney and Larry Blyden. All but forgotten. I do believe they were married. She died before him due to cancer.

David Caroll died in the early 90's, a victim of the AIDS nightmare.  A great loss to the musical theatre.

Carol Haney and Larry Blyden were married from 1955-1962, divorcing two years before Haney's death. Haney didn't die of cancer. She was an alcoholic and had diabetes; she died of pneumonia compounded by her drinking and chronic disease. She was only 39--very sad.


Blyden was one of the biggest stars on Broadway right up until his death, at 49, while on vacation in Morocco just a few weeks after he left the original production of ABSURD PERSON SINGULAR. At the time, he was preparing to host the game show SHOWOFFS, which ended up being hosted by Bobby Van.


Sadly, one of Haney and Blyden's two children, Josh, died young as well, at 42.

Hal Linden


Did The Rothschilds & a Pajama Game revival but after that basically ziltch


I realize he had Barney Miller for a number of years (7) but after the series ended, he was M.I.A on Broadway and had been since. He did 2 replacement roles on Broadway with his last being in  Cabaret in 2002. He did regional theater after that. He was in a TV adaptation of I Do I Do with Lee Remick. I has been out of print for a long time. Luckily, I previously burned it to DVD .


Bob Halliday


Was in Fiorello & Camelot. After Superman, he seemed to be Up,Up, & Away. He did some road work before retiring to sell homes in the Pocconos in Pa.

Hal Linden lives on the West Coast and prefers to work out there. He's very active in regional theater and just completed a run of THE TWENTY-SEVENTH MAN at the Old Globe.

I was aware of his work outside Broadway. I thought this thread had to do missing from Broadway.

This is TOTALLY random, but I always think of Barbara Bryne.  I fell in love with her voice the first time I saw Into the Woods, and then just fell even more in love with her and her acting in Sunday In the Park With George (her singing "Beautiful" gets me emotional EVERY SINGLE TIME).  I just wikipedia'd her and I'm guessing she still does some regional theatre?


I'd do anything to see her live in a show.
