Hi. Just so you know, I did do a search but it didn't bring anything up. I'm sorry if this has been questioned/ discussed before. I have 2 questions to ask about this actress.
1. Who did she play in the Donmar's Into the Woods?

2. Was there any specific reason why she replaced Anna Jane Casey in Sunday in the Park with George?

If you can help me, I would be most gratefull.
Thanks.

Jenna Russell was Cinderella in Into the Woods. It was quite a long time ago.
I'm not sure why Anna Jane Casey left the show, but I think she has a baby now - so maybe that is why?

Sunday extended then transfered. Ms Casey has signed on to do a play in Rep somewhere and moved on to honour that prior engagement. She was a damn fine Dot although I think Jenna added something different to the role too.

A young actress with Noel coward after a dreadful opening night performance said to him 'Well, i knew my lines backwards this morning!'' Noels fast reply was ''Yes dear, and thats exactly how you said them tonight'!'

It's such a shame Anna Jane didn't transfer with the show... wudve loved to see her as Dot!!! Didn't like Jenna in Guys & Dolls, but LOVED her in Sunday!!! Hopes it will return to the UK!!! Better still, a DVD release of the show!

I am pretty sure she did Hobson's Choice at some rep theatre.

It was definitely 'Hobson's Choice' and I've a feeling it was at the Watermill. Pity that she had to leave the role; I thought she was a wonderful Dot. I remember thinking when I saw her at the Menier that her Dot was the first Dot I actually cared about. She and Daniel had wonderful chemistry. Beautiful performance.
