With talk of the above.

What do you think of these two talking over?

I think Elaine will bring a new fresh barb to Madame Armfelt

I'm not sure how I'd feel about Bernadette though. Not saying it's bad but not sure how I'd feel until I heard her.

Who would you all liek to see as replacements so they can keep this show running a little longer?

I'm the exact opposite, Tyler. :P
I'd love to see what Bernadette would do with the role. Is she perfect? Nah. But it'd be interesting.
Now Stritchie for Mme. Armfeldt...that's a bizarre one. Not sure if I can see it. At all.

Either way, it'd probably extend the show a bit longer, so I'm for it.

Well it's nice to see Bernadette working on Broadway again at an rate.
And I definately like it better than the rumour i heard about Gweneth Paltrow and Blythe Danner.

So, Elaine Stritch came to my school last Thursday to observe and guest teach one of the MT classes. She wound up saying this in regards to this topic:

"Yes, I was offered the role. And I'm looking forward to turning it down."

My question is would A Little Night Music even survive with Catherine Zeta Jones and Angela Lansbury gone from the show? They've used them so much to market this show.
When I was in New York, my friends and I were walking around and we stopped by the stage door after one of the performances. (We weren't able to see the show.) Everyone was at the stage door to see Catherine Zeta Jones. They were all disappointed when a guy came to the door and said that she wouldn't be coming out.

I don't think it will kill it. It's already had a good run for whatever they were going to get out of the general public. People will still go for a while because it's big on Broadway at the moment, even if it isn't the cast that opened it. And if they're offering to people like Bernadette or Stritch for replacements, they won't be without a name.

I hope they do it. I wanted Bernadette to do it in the first place instead of Catherine anyways.

Exxxxxxaaaactly. I can't really see an unknown doing either of the roles in such a high-profile production anyway. Plus, these two may bring in even more sway than CZJ.

Should that be expected, though? Rarely does a replacement bring MORE sway to a production than the person did who started with the production. Then again, I do think that for many members of the public outside the real theatre community, seeing Bernadette Peters on Broadway could feel like a more authentic experience than Catherine Zeta Jones.
