Hasn't been cast yet, but Hwood Bowl generally assembles amusing casts... any thoughts?

someone said Kristin Chenoweth as Adelaide in some thread; I think that would be very interesting. :D

Ellen Greene (Original Audrey in LSOH) is Adelaide.

I don't remember who is Nathan...

BRIAN STOKES MITCHELL as Sky. AnaSoprana, are you reading this? :wink:

And...

JESSICA BIEL, yes that Jessica Biel, will be Sarah!

I felt the exact opposite. And thought the leads were miscast, although the singing was pleasant. They would have done much better as a true concert version instead of a truncated "full" version.

Bakula was sleepwalking through Nathan. He only came mildly alive for the solo they included from the film... "Taking A Chance On Me". It was disappointing.

Why is it that nobody seems able to cast Guys and Dolls decently in the past couple of years? :crazy: Is it because people forget that all each of the 4 leads are just as important as the other 3? Is it because people are trying to bring something new to the roles that comes from the casting of a celebrity performer rather than an actor who could do the role justice? Do the people producing high profile productions of Guys and Dolls simply not get the show they are casting? What exactly is the problem here?

Jessica Biel is really amazing. I will try to see her appearances more often.
