I'm going Singingbackup, I have to admit though, I don't know who Kerry Butler is. I guess I'll find out on the 5th!
Yes, we do need a third vampire musical.--Little Sally, Gypsy of the Year 2005.

"Now she wants to know WHY, if I'm so fabulous, I would WANT to take care of her child.....I answer with as much filigree and insouciance as I can muster, trying to slightly cock my head like Snow White listening to the animals. She, in turn, is aiming for more of a Diane-Sawyer-pose, looking for answers which will confirm that I am not there to steal her husband, jewelry, friends, or child. In that order." The Nanny Diaries

um I pretty much heart this show with all of my being! And I wish I can be in LA to see this! And Kerry will do a great job I'm sure!

I'm excited for Kerry since it's a show she loves and finally gets to play one of the parts she's always wanted to play. Shame it's only for one night

I thought she would be a better fit for Pam. Anyone else think she's a little too old for Lizzie?

You think she'd make a good gym teacher? She's definitely a Lizzie. Being on the list of many to play Ariel, she definitely isn't too old to play a college student. Not to mention, this is a concert, not a run of the show.

Craig I totally agree, I think she can still do Lizzie. She still looks like she's in early 20's on stage IMO. I don't see her as a Pam at all. And yeah, it's a concert version anyway.

Any idea if they're doing the new version that was done at Papermill a few years ago?

I thought the changes really helped save a show I normally don't care for that much. The show as a whole was so much more complete and "End of Summer" is a great moment.

You're right, acrocksyo. I would kill to hear her sing it, too. I hear that was one of her favorite musicals, and I'm really glad for her that she got this role. Sorry I can't see it, because, COLLEGE IN MANHATTAN. What a shanda.
