Nothing has been announced. This is Robyn's final week and it's bizarre nothing has been mentioned. Who is this Johnson-Smith?

Robyn Hurder. Best Velma the show has had in quite some time.

Charlotte returns as Roxie on June 27.

Robyn Hurder as Velma Kelly


"Noel [Coward] and I were in Paris once. Adjoining rooms, of course. One night, I felt mischievous, so I knocked on Noel's door, and he asked, 'Who is it?' I lowered my voice and said 'Hotel detective. Have you got a gentleman in your room?' He answered, 'Just a minute, I'll ask him.'" (Beatrice Lillie)

FYI, Robyn injured herself again on Sunday night. Doesn't sound serious and she's expected to come back on Thursday.

Matthew Winnege is truly multitalented.  He covers the roles of bailiff, court clerk, "tap dance" specialty and Amos Hart.  He posted a picture on IG as having had an Amos understudy rehearsal.

Kind of odd Jinkx is only returning for 20 performances. Not even a full 3 weeks. This will probably give them a boost next week when July 4 weekend is typically quiet.

I wonder who is coming in as the next Billy Flynn when Max Von Essen finishes his (very) long run.

I'd assume Jayke workman is back as the standby then.

I was curious about Jayke Workman's voice, as I've never heard it.  This is a duet with Teal Wicks. https://youtu.be/LEph860o38s?si=bGA9YW626dzqOMka

Workman did the non-equity tour of CHICAGO in 2019-20. When Chicago reopened and they had a COVID outbreak and needed a Mary Sunshine, Jayke got the call and made his Bway debut. He continues to get called in when either Lowe or London are on vacation.

Mary Claire King made her ROXIE debut last night. Charlotte has only been back a week and is already missing shows.
