Question about Vacationing Performers#1
Posted: 5/3/08 at 4:51pm
Ok I know most of you won't be fond of this question, and I appologize in advance, but here goes.

I am bringing a group of 11, 12 and 13 year olds to NYC June 9-12. How can I find out if the performers in our shows will be there? Is there someplace that says when peformers are on vacation? I have checked broadway understudies, but they don't have information that far in advance. We are seeing Wicked, Grease, and Hairspray. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

idinaismyidol,
Since when did Steph break her ankle? She sprained it.

Will you change your plans if understudies are on?

I dont think the teens will be disappointed should they see an understudy go on.

"Stephanie J Block may not be there because she broke her ankle, and Julie Reiber MAY be on for the remainder of Block's run."

Well, until May 11, it's going to be Lisa Brescia.

All the people in Wicked are great. I have seen Steph,Lisa and Chelsea as Elphie and they don't disappoint. I never seen the other 2 shows though. I don't think that the kids would be disappointed by seeing understudies but what do I know...lol.

It'd be a treat to see Lisa Brescia in Wicked! She's so awesome, and so like "unknown" so to say....too bad she won't overtake the role re: Question about Vacationing Performers. But agreed, 'most' understudies are good!
