Jon Jon is giving a phenomenal performance and has already developed great chemistry with Jordan. He's a bit of a jokester as Hermes, incorporates some bits in Tagalog. My issue with Lillias' Hermes was that she was removed from the story. Jon Jon is a witness and experiences the emotions with us as he continues to retell the story. Just wow. 

Isa was excellent. She did a great job of balancing Solea's anger with the naivety and tenderness that Lola brought. Vocally, she was strong. I had seen her on the Hamilton tour years ago, and her voice has matured very nicely in the last five or so years. I do think her acting is where she truly shines though.

Ani was good. She is sticking to what she knows. It feels a bit out of place with Jordan and Isa belting the sh*t out of the score, and I missed Phillip and Betty's chemistry. However, I think Ani fans will be very pleased with her performance. 

Jordan and Phillip were great as usual. Glad to see Jordan's voice is holding up because this is not an easy score to sing the way he does.

The producers of this show really knew who to bring in after the OBC left.


A Chorus Line revival played its final Broadway performance on August 17, 2008. The tour played its final performance on August 21, 2011. A new non-equity tour started in October 2012 played its final performance on March 23, 2013. Another non-equity tour launched on January 20, 2018. The tour ended its US run in Kansas City and then toured throughout Japan August & September 2018.

i was lead to believe by the usual suspects on these boards that Jordan Fisher would be unable to perform consistently and would not last more than a few months with barely-there attendance. woulda ya look at that.

Didn’t see it mentioned in this thread, but in the announcement for Jordan Fisher extending, it also mentioned he is scheduled to be out for must of April.  There’s also an alert on SeatGeek for those performances.

I was going to ask, does anyone know who's going on for Orpheus this month?

Brandon Cameron was on for Orpheus when I went this week. He was fantastic.

I believe the understudies are just alternating until he returns.

Does anyone know how long Boykin is scheduled for? We'd really like to see him, just don't know if we can squeeze it in soon.  (Im sorry if it here somewhere, but my head started spinning trying to find it.)


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.
