Can anyone tell me when the all of the current Broadway cast's contracts end? I have tickets for an October 25th show and I was hoping that Eden was going to be playing Elphaba but now I'm hearing that she ends on October 8th? And I was excited to be seeing Jenna Leigh Green play Nessa haha since hello, Sabrina the Teenage Witch was the last time I saw her do anything and I loved her.

Yup, Eden will be gone. I haven't heard anything yet, so it seems like Jenna will still be there. It's not that big of a part, but you'll love her.

I'm in the minority here, but I wouldn't be too upset about Eden leaving. You'll find many people disagreeing with this, but I find her acting very weak, and her voice just alright for me.

Oh, and it seems like the next Elphie will be Ana Gasteyer, even though nothing's official yet. I saw her in Chicago and liked her a lot. If that's who you'll be seeing, then I think it makes for a nice show. =]

Aww...I saw Ana three times in Chicago (I live in Freeport, IL) and she was AMAZING.

Well, that'll be interesting. I've never seen Ana - even in boots - so I can't judge yet, but I will definitely miss Eden.

To the OP - I spoke to Jenna the first week in July and she said she has no plans to move on at this point, though I'm not sure when her contract ends. She said she's up for "whatever comes along". (You'll love her :D )

I heard Kate's last is Jan 7th (unless she extends of course), and Jenna and Derrick are in until at least Christmas and probably leaving on the same day but I don't have anything concrete on that, so.

Good lord, this show has a high turnover. Kate practically just started...and Sean McCourt's leaving in January...it's gonna be a whole new show by February.

Do you know when Sean's last is by any chance?

I heard Jan. 8th.

Excellent, thanks! As I'm seeing the show both before and after that date, I'd be thrilled beyond words if there was, like, an entire cast change over *g*

LOL! That'd certainly be something.

Actually Sean's last is today.

Oh, no....damn damn damn. I must've had bad info. :( Well, I will miss the hell out of him in October, when I go back. Who's taking over, d'you know?
