Post Stephanie J. Block in Anything Goes
So Stephanie J. Block has temporarily replaced Sutton Foster in Anything Goes on Broadway while the latter does some TV work. Has anyone heard anything about her performance? SJB could definitely sing the role, and I'm told she's a great dancer, I just wonder how her acting holds up.

Any word?

All I've seen is her performance for the Macy's Parade, and I didn't particularly care for it.



I can't really pinpoint what it is I don't like about her performance. I would chalk it up to my Sutton Foster obsession, but Sutton wasn't the first and certainly isn't the only Reno I like, so it's not just that. Still, I can't figure out what it is that bugged me...

Well, she seems to be channeling Ethel Merman, which is always a good thing. But maybe it's her hair or costume (or something not even pertaining to her performance), but it almost feels like she's playing Reno's mother.

Starting March 12th, Stephanie J. Block will be the permanent Reno, as Sutton Foster leaves the show to shoot her TV series.
