sorry to start a bklyn thread but, I adore CLM and I just found out she left the cast to return to RENT. I wish her the best of luck.

Finally, she's back in decent show. She's the best Mimi I've ever seen - after Daphne, of course.

It would be nice if they actually had her PLAYING Mimi, rather than being the understudy.

Isn't Caren replacing Kendra Kassebaum as Mark's Mom at the end of the month? So she still may be with Brooklyn for another week or so. I don't blame her for leaving Brooklyn...not that I have seen the show yet so I'm not judging the material but it seems she'll be getting more stage time with Rent.

StraightToHeaven - Yeah, she's definitely replacing Kendra in a couple of weeks as Mark's Mom (ensemble). She should still be understudying Mimi and Maureen though. However, since Krystal Washington is leaving in January, I hope that Caren gets fulltime Mimi. It's a crime if she doesn't.

I wish that Caren had a chance to play Brooklyn before she left the show though (or whenever she leaves). That would've gotten me down there in a heartbeat. Oh well. Anyone know who's gonna be replacing her at Brooklyn?

um.... last time I checked, an understudy IS a cast member. I'd like to see her take over Mimi

Although I agree that Caren is a great Mimi, with the way things work at the Neder, I think her chances of taking over for Krystal are about as likely as her b/f's chances of getting the role of Roger again.

I saw Rent again this week. Drew Lachey was terrible beyond words. He even has a lisp. (Dethember 24ttth )
The rest of the cast was really strong especially the Roger Mimi and Angel :)

Just find it interesting that Brooklyn is already losing cast members...hmmm...has it been 2 weeks yet since they opened...seems like this a foreshadowing event to a bigger one...

Wow. Best of luck to her in whatever she does. I'd love to see her play Mimi; at the first (and only) performance of RENT that I've seen, she was really amazing and, as I think I've said before, probably the nicest person in the cast.

And ath for Drew Lachey and hith lithp... didn't Matt Caplan have a bit of a lisp, or was that just me hearing things?

Not that I'm in a hurry to go up and see Drew, but... H'whatever. xD

no offense dickon but,mainly when you post, the things you say are not needed. Learn your facts.. *A* castmember has left..mainly because she is backstage everynight. Eden has a great attendance record from WICKED - Denvers BKLYN run - Bway.. doubtful she will miss. If you had a chance to be on stage in front of the audience every night wouldn't you take it?

Is there any truth to the rumor that she's being replaced in BROOKLYN by John Stamos?

Oh, TGC would be great, but Susan Lucci is also available.
