I just saw her in concert tonight and she told me that today was her first rehearsal. I don't know if this was previously announced, but I just thought I'd share.

Yes, in Legally Blonde. Sorry, I should have been more specific.

Congrats to Colleen:)
She went on as Elphaba when I saw the Wicked tour last summer. Loved her performance.

Are we talking about COLEEN SEXTON aka of J&H fame?! I LOVE Coleen I will actually see Legally BLonde because of her! Or are we talking about COLLEEN SEXTON, aka the actual singer:

Then in that case I don't care. Sorry!

Hope it's Coleen!

Since when does she have a "concert tour"/concerts in general!?!?!? How was she? What songs did she sing/review? I want to go to a concert of hers badly! She's one of my all-time favourites.

It was a Neil Burg (composer of Prince and the Pauper) concert at a temple in my county (a few miles north of NYC). There were a few performers, but Coleen sang All that Jazz, Someone Like You, I Don't Know How to Love Him, and Don't Cry for Me Argentina. I absolutely loved her I Don't Know How to Love Him; she got very emotional. The rest of the concert was ehh, but she was amazing. I met her afterwards and she was really sweet.

This is turning out to be one interesting cast. Can't wait to catch the tour a few times during its run at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach, Florida.

Whoo-hoo!

It's a shame we can't get her on Broadway at all! As I've already said I think I might have to catch the LB tour now!

Besides Becky and Coleen, who else is in the tour cast? I heard Cortney Wolfson was Serena and Natalie Joy Johnson was Paulette but I wasn't sure if those were rumors or not.

I'm not positive about Cortney Wolfson, but Natalie is definitely Paulette.

Love Coleen. Feroch.

I'm loving the idea of Natalie Joy as Paulette. SO different from Orfeh, but she could really bring her own brilliance to the role. STOKED!

I'd prefer to see Sexton as Paulette (think of her rendition of Ireland!). Perhaps she'll understudy the role?

As far as the rest of the cast, Ven Daniel (I believe that's his name) is playing Dewey/Kyle.

I also know that a certain contestant from the Legally Blonde reality show is going to be in the tour, but obviously not as Elle (my guess is she's playing Margot).

If Coleen wasn't playing Brooke, the next role I'd place her in would be Vivienne. I think she's a bit too regal for Paulette.

And Leslie McDonel (a wonderful understudy from Hairspray) will be covering Vivienne/Serena/Brooke.
