I about fell off my couch when I heard this. It's about time it cam back. I would love for Bernadette Peters to be cast as Lily. If not, I can't wait to see what the casting shapes out to be.

Perhaps she's a little old for Lily at this point in time, unless the revival re-imagines the character as a cougar.

That's actually a really funny idea, David!

I heard a rumor that Allison Janney is in the talks to be Hannigan. I would LOVE for Megan Hilty to be Lily and Stephanie J. Block to be Grace, if that were all true :)

I'd also settle for Kate Baldwin being Grace, Bernadette being Hannigan and maybe someone along the lines of Robyn Hurder as Lily... or any combination of that group! :D

I smell a Tony!

Lord, I'd pay big money to see Bernadette play Lily as a cougar.

Is Lily a big enough role?

I mean, Bernadette leads shows - not supports them.

Guys, as much as I adore Bernadette, she'll be 64 by the time the show opens...

I'd love
Warbucks- That guy who plays it at the Muny, Equity National Tours & Broadway Revival (I can't remember his name)
Mrs. Hannigan- Patti LuPone
Grace- Ashley Brown
Lily- Laura Bell Bundy
Rooster- Tony Yazbeck
Star to Be- Natalie Weiss

I have a feeling they're going to cast Andrea McArdle as Hannigan though, which might send me into an epileptic seizure. Ick!
