I know this was posted in the "Jersey Boys - Broadway" thread, but I felt like it deserved its own post.

I've been so busy lately working an eight show week in addition to class and haven't been around the JB world that I had no idea Jen was leaving. She's one of the sweetest people I know and such a talented actress. She's the only person I have never seen an understudy for in JERSEY BOYS, and I know the next time I'm at the show it will be so different without her.

Here's to a truly great woman and actress!
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?

not to be rude or anything, but the girls really don't have a large part in jersey boys, so i probably wouldn't notice a girl had left if i didn't read the playbill

The girls have A HUGE PART in Jersey Boys. They're just kind of thankless roles...

Every time I saw Jersey Boys, I was always impressed by Jennifer and wished her part was bigger because her take and Frankie's wife really deserved attention. I hoped that when she moved on, it would be to new and exciting things, so I hope that actually happens. I could totally see her going into a show like Xanadu (for Mary or Jackie) or In the Heights.
