I just checked the broadwayunderstudies.com site and it looks like Roger Bart is taking a one week vacation in April and my tix are for that same week ! Jon Patrick Walker will be playing the role and I was wondering if anyone has seen him in it ! I am not crazy about Roger Bart, I would just like to see a good performance ! So, what can I expect ?

Jon's only been on once since he joined the cast, but I've heard he was great.
And then what if you are?
What a Prince would envision?
Although how can you know who you are till you know
What you want, which you don't?
So then which do you pick:
Where you're safe, out of sight, And yourself, but where everything's wrong?
Or where everything's right And you know that you'll never belong?

That's good to know ! Thank you ! I don't think I've heard raves about Roger, so, while I cringed at first on hearing he's out, maybe Jon is even better ! I'd be devastated if Megan was out, though !

I liked Roger Bart, but the standout for me was Christopher Fitzgerald. Also Sutton Foster, Megan, and Andrea Martin!

Yes, Christopher was the stand-out to me too. He's definatley a scene stealer.

Hope you enjoy the showre: Has anyone seen Jon Patrick Walker instead of Roger Bart in YF ??

mllie, from your post, I understand that Roger was your least favorite of the leads !

It looks like, if it is inevitable to get a lead understudy, I am lucky to get Roger's and not someone else's re: Has anyone seen Jon Patrick Walker instead of Roger Bart in YF ??

An Jon Patrick Walker, from what I have seen of him in numerous other shows, is SUPER talented. I'm so excited to see him go on - I'll be lotto-ing every day that week.
