I am so excited about this. I actually think I'd prefer to see some unknowns in roles like Henrik, Fredkrika, etc.

However, the possibility of one show with both Victoria Clark AND Angela Lansubry? That is way too amazing.

Any news on who's up for Petra? I think I wouls have loved to see someone like Kendra Kassebaum but I know she's unavailable. Maybe another unknown?

On BW, Benanti was a popular suggestion for Charlotte. But it seemed like an awful lot of speculation.

Leigh Ann Larkin for Petra? I don't know...

Clark is probably too old for Nunn's vision, IMO. Too bad, but it sounded like Emma Thompson and Kate Winslet were being discussed.

I really don't want Benanti in this. I love her, but I just don't see her in any of the roles at this point.

I liked Benanti in Gypsy and that's it. I'm not crazy about her in anything else really. Her "Home" (from Phantom, on the Maury Yeston Songbook) is good, I guess.

But this is exciting! Victoria Clark AND Angela Lansbury! :D

Sorry, sorry, sorry double post but

I'm imagining Victoria Clark singing "Send in the Clowns" and...well it's a beautiful, beautiful thing. I absolutely adore her in Titanic, H2$, and Piazza, so this will be one hell of a production.

Does Clark have a big role in Titanic? I only know the show from a cast recording and (though I haven't tried hard) I can't even hear her.

Also, everyone keep in mind nothign RE: cast is confirmed, in f act some people claim it is an 'oscar-winning actress' not clark now.

Clark had one of the bigger roles as Alice Beane. She can be heard in "I Must Get On That Ship", "First Class Roster", "I Have Danced", and "Dressed in Your Pyjamas" as well as most ensemble songs. She's in more songs than others.

So word is that it will definitely be Bernadette Peters and Angela Lansbury in Trevor Nunn's revival of A Little Night Music on Broadway.

OMG I always said that if I couldn't find a discount ticket anywhere to any given show that I would pass on the show (I'm a poor college kid) but that is one team that I would suck it up, pay top dollar, and not see anything else for the rest of the year for.

Where is this word coming from?

PS I googled that rumor to see if anything poped up and I found this news article for the revival announcment and started reading the comments. Someone suggested Cheno for Desiree and lots of people responded favorably. A part of me died inside.
