I noticed that too, and I have seen some posts on Instagram of other stage doors where actors were signing or posing for pictures. I had thought that stage dooring was still banned, as was having any visitors backstage (which also doesn't seem to be a thing anymore). Maybe it was quietly brought back? Lol

But does it? I wonder if they did screen tests with various hair. To me he looks boyish with the short cut parted hair.
It doesn't, he looks his age in all the footage I have seen so far. They really missed the mark on trying to make him look like a high-school

No you weren't, you just misinterpreted the way it was written, the same way I did. LOL. It says its playing St Louis from 4/5 - 9/22 on the site for example. Which to me looked like it's saying it's playing from April 5th (4/5) to September 22nd (9/22). But it's actually meaning April 5th through April

I know I'm in the minority, but CRUELLA remains my favorite live action adaptation of a Disney animated film. But then, it really isn't a remake, but a prequel. So I guess it falls in a different category. Lol
Honestly, I'm so on the fence with this film, but I'm very very curious to see how it turns out.

I really really wish we were getting a nice equity tour here in the US in time for the 20th anniversary next year. Or a short engagement back on Broadway.
I know on another message thread for this production, there was some talk that it might be getting filmed, anybody know are the chances of that actually happening? I'm guessing with covid restrictions, the chances of that are exceptionally slim. But it would be great.

viagalactica6 said: "g.d.e.l.g.i. said: "I wonder if she's referring to Jennifer Holliday's sore ass over not being involved; she wasn't offered a cameo, took it as a snub (especially after Loretta Devine got in), and so she put the movie on blast in the media for a while, until the BET Awards booked her to duet on the big number with Jennifer Hudson and suddenly everything was cool."
The main reason that Loretta Devine was the only member of the original cast of DREAMGIRLS in the film is because Bennett was about to abandon the workshop while still in rehearsals when Jennifer walked out for the second time because she felt her role as Effie was too small. It was Loretta who talked Michael into giving Holliday whatever she wanted (which ended up being another song in Act II ("I Am Changing" and continuing with the show. That is also why Loretta was Bennett's date at the Tony Awards the year it was nominated. Producer Bill Condon paid homage to Loretta Devine by including her in the film.
I'd also wager that Loretta has the most extensive TV / film credits, and most recognizable to modern audiences, in comparison to the other original dreams. Which was probably Another factor for her being included in the film.

I can't tell by the exclamation point at the end of the sentence if you're excited or surprised by the news he's not returning. I haven't gotten to see this production yet, but I've always enjoyed Kyle Dean in everything I've seen him in.
