On Maria Eberline's official site, she said that Katie left the tour to take over as the Broadway standby. Congrats to Katie!

Congratulations Katie! I did not see her Glinda when she was in Dallas, but I had the pleasure of meeting her when she sang for a hurricane benefit at my church. She, Kendra and Emily were all delightful.

Apparently she's only contracted for a month. Does anyone know why? That seems kind of weird.

OMG!! That's great news. I'm going to have to do the lottery as often as I can so I can see her as Glindie.

Who's the stand-by now and why is she leaving?

Good for her! I thought she was fantastic. When I saw it, the people next to us had flowers, and it turned out it was Katie's boyfriend and his family. So he took us back to meet her afterward and she was the sweetest sweetest person. I hope good things continue to come her way

As someone above said (and as Maria Eberline said,) Katie is only going to be Standby for a month until they can hire someone full time.
Tonya Pinkins: Then we had a "Lot's Wife" last June that was my personal favorite. I'm still trying to get them to let me sing it at some performance where we get to sing an excerpt that's gone.
Tony Kushner: You can sing it at my funeral.

so basically she just got hired to appease the equity rule that once a track is created it must be kept? I truly hope they keep her after the month or thats just cruel.

Katie said she's not even sure why they only have her for a month. But we'll just keep our fingers crossed that they keep her longer. Write letters people! I'm serious!! She's the best damn Glinda I've seen in a while!
What is your dream role?
My dream role would be to be myself. To be performing at the Hollywood Bowl and to have an audience there just to see me, as Stephanie. They are there because they like what I do as a singer, an artist and a person (the last being the most important). I enjoy escaping and portraying other characters, but to be accepted and wanted as yourself... that's amazing! --Stephanie J. Block Just one of the many reasons I admire and respect Stephanie!!

She was absolutely amazing when I saw her on tour in Chicago. I liked her better than Chenoweth, at least from the soundtrack standpoint. Apparently she was also Soupy Sue when I saw Urinetown on tour, way back when I did not have as much Broadway knowledge.

Katie is AMAZING!!! When I first saw her I thought there was NO WAY she could be different from the other 5 Glinda's I'd seen. But she COMPLETLY reinvented the role and plays Glinda so differently. I adore her. She is also one of the most kind and sincere people I know.

She IS amazing!
I think the thing that really sets her apart from all the Glindas is she has such *heart*. Both onstage and off. I really connected with the character, much more than I did with anyone else in the role. She's funny and has lots of energy but doesn't have to go overboard to get laughs.
Not to mention the fact that she's just about the sweetest person you could ever imagine.

Couldn't agree more MLE! She just plays the role from the heart. And I think that's really needed in this role!

aegeusrocks - I think I'm going to have to let Katie know that you like her more than Kristin. I think she will be incredibly flattered! Kristin is someone she adores and really wants to meet!
