Yay
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.

Yes, the Chicago sit-down production is being cast with all Chicago area actors. They save a ton of money thay way, since they don't have to pay per diem (living expenses).

Also, the Chicago production is in a theatre that only seats 700, and is on a special contract. The actors will earn about $700 a week - about half what a National Touring company pays, but way more than most of the other Equity theatres in town.

It's not the same production. It will be an entirely new production.

Jared is a good friend of mine. I did a show with him last year. He will be wonderful as Barfee!!!! I wish for once I didn't live on the east coast.
