However, Angela Lansbury will be reprising her role as the Dowager Empress in the show. An original cast member who is also a Broadway veteran? Bodes well for the show, which will incorporate an overwhelming 15 new songs in addition to 5 from the original. (Although, according to the count on my iTunes, there are six songs from the original - which is getting the cut?) I have to admit, I'm probably most excited to see Bartok, my favorite animated bat, brought to life. Check out Imagine Casting's ideas for the prime cast. I'm loving the thought of Sierra Boggess, Brian D'Arcy James and Aaron Tveit (perfect choice for the hottest cartoon character of all time).
(Also, this was my 100th post! Can't believe I've made it this far!)
