Gypsy?

YEaaaaauuuuuhhh Qianna you are BEAUTIFUL

Rose would be Ruthie Henshall…again. (I’m sorry I just want to see her in every role, especially Phyllis.)

Louise would be Laura Osnes (or maybe Benanti)

Herbie would be Douglas Hodge, he’s too beautiful for me not to pick him.

June would be Celia Keenan-Bolger of course

Tessie Tura is Kristin Chenoweth, Mazeppa is Bette Midler, and Electra is Katie Rose Clark.

do it, Barbra Streisand. make it happen.

A lot of people think it’s going to be Julian Oveden’s character (Simon). I wrote a long post about it, but I don’t want Ivy and Derek together romantically right now/anymore. I like their friendship. But I miss their relationship from last season.

That makes sense. And he’s not bad looking at all…
I wonder if they’ll make the character British, and that’s part of what attracts her.
Except I don’t know if I want her to be involved with someone in the cast/creative team. Unless he’s really lovely and charming and adores her and they live happily ever after.
Is the ‘5 years later’ fic where they mention her having an affair with her costar yours? because spot-on!

I miss Derek and Ivy too, as they were last season. I like them as friends as well, but I feel they’ve changed both characters too much from last season for them to still work as a couple. Which is a shame, because they were as perfect as perfect can be, flaws and all.

Yeah, SMASH had this habit of having to bring a character down in order to raise another. Daisy had to be a heartless witch so you could feel bad for Derek/Ana.

At least she took the flack from the characters but not professionally. She did win the Tony, and I am assuming she kept the role, since that’s ultimately Jerry’s decision, and he was on her side. And Derek’s the one who got booed, and who will probably struggle to get jobs in the future.
