Post Soprano Nancy?
A friend of mine who is 29 and a coloratura soprano just got cast as Nancy. Does anyone else think that Nancy should be cast a little older? And also, I think it's a little superfluous casting a soprano as Nancy because the only song she sings that goes into that range is the reprise of "Fine Life", and that song is cut more often than not.

I'm not sure what to say about the voice type, but Nancy is a teenager in the original novel. 29 sounds fine for the musical to me.

I like it when Nancy is a little older because it adds to her dynamic with Fagin. Remember, she used to run in his gang, so the older she is, the longer she harbors resentment towards Fagin.
