NY Post:

"Jenna Elfman has postponed her Broadway debut in the hit musical "Nine" indefinitely, and while the official word is that she needs more "rehearsal time," the unofficial word is that she's been given the hook and is looking for a way to make a graceful exit."


OUCH!!!!

Remember when there was the rumor that Mariah Carey would replace Jane K?

Good times.

If Elfman is really out of Nine, bad for her.

Broadway.com's Paul Wontorek who saw Sara Gettelfinger yesterday thinks she's the girl for the role.

I would agree, why not giving Gettelfinger the chance?

I actually think Mariah Carey as Carla would be really interesting. I think she could sing those songs well, if she just quit with all the riffling and vocal gymnastics.

I actually think Jessica Simpson would be absolutely perfect. She can sing the songs, believe me- and she's gorgeous. On the toher hand, I have heard Gettelfinger, and I agree- she should be given a chance.

Sara Gettelfinger should get it. I love seeing such talented and hard working understudies (who don't get enough credit as it is) given the chance to move up and perform the role full time.

I could never have envisioned her in the role to begin with.
