After seeing the tour last week, I have been thinking about which role is harder to cast: Orpheus or Eurydice?

Despite the criticisms many had for him, Carney brought a certain charisma to the role that I just didn't get from the actor playing the role currently on the tour - even though he could sing the role fine.  While the tour Eurydice was as excellent as Noblezada.

Are Eurydice's songs just so excellent that they elevate whoever is performing them? And also, is the music written for Eurydice more accessible for many singers?  I don't know the technical terms, but maybe in the right keys or whatever that many singers can tackle those songs successfully?

While for Orpheus's music it may be more difficult to find singers who can successfully sing the music, since so much of it seems to have so many high notes?

Congrats on Melanie getting out of the dumpster fire that is & Juliet. Great performances all around, but just... such a bad show.

Eh, it's a good paycheck and was a chance for her to work on Broadway for the first time and dip her feet into NY theatre.

I heard Zachary James perform at my church Christmas Eve service several years ago when I was in the choir! He's got an incredible voice!


you found your heart but left a part of you behind <3

Just finished. It was beautiful they had Reeve and Eva walk up the stairs with the show lighting and music without Orpheus turning around.

Reeve is so wonderful and he was such a gorgeous, vulnerable Orpheus. Congratulations to him for originating and playing the role for so many years! 

I think Jordan has issues with any kind of criticisms. He is used to winning and being really successful. So, the lack of love and acclaim for his Anthony might have messed with him. He realized his strengths and that his voice sounds amazing when singing a contemporary score. He sounded incredible in both Hamilton and Dear Evan Hansen, and I think this role fits him perfectly.

Enjoy him tonight for anyone going guys!

Enjoy Jordan tonight for it may be the only time he turns up for work! ;)

He couldn't handle the Sweeney score nor could he handle Dear Evan Hansen 8 or even 7 or even 6 or even 5 times a week. Sometimes screen actors shouldn't be on stage, it take a specific level of endurance which he's proven he does not have on many many occasions (including when he was in Hamilton, not carrying a full show).

I would love to see you have perfect attendance during your contract with a show. And if you manage it please-share your secret

I neither like or dislike Jordan. Found him serviceable in ST.

 

However, people talking about his attendance record isn't out of left field. He misses a LOT of performances - as evidence by his track record.  MIGHT it be different? Sure. But people are judged by their actions. What's that saying? Believe people the first time they show you who they are. 


If we're not having fun, then why are we doing it? These are DISCUSSION boards, not mutual admiration boards. Discussion only occurs when we are willing to hear what others are thinking, regardless of whether it is alignment to our own thoughts.

Well you won’t see me do that because I cannot. And nor can Jordan Fisher. It’s not controversial to say the dude doesn’t have the stamina. He’s proven it with every new job he takes. It’s just a fact.

Based on these Wait for Me clips, he won’t be long before missing shows here too. He’s already in shouting territory.
