One thought on “Episode 10: Multiverses, Casting, and Andrew Lloyd Webber

  1. Hey Patty and Emily,

    First off, I just have to say I love your show. It’s one of the highlights of my week listening to “Listen with Patty and Emily” on my iPod to and from work.

    I loved your idea of the Jumanji musical and your casting desicions! I think it’s brilliant beyond brilliant. So what do you think of this dream cast for The Help?

    The Help
    Based on the book of the same title by Kathryn Stockett.

    Aibileen Clark – Audra McDonald
    Eugenia “Skeeter” Phelan – Jessie Mueller
    Minny Jackson – Da’Vine Joy Randolph
    Celia Foote – Laura Osnes
    Hilly Holbrook – Laura Benanti
    Charlotte Phelan – Allison Janney (reprising her role from the film)
    Elizabeth Leefolt – Lauren Worsham
    Stuart Whitworth – Ben Platt
    Elaine Stein – Kate Baldwin
    Johnny Foote – Jeremy Jordan (to reunite him with Osnes from their Bonnie and Clyde days)
    Constantine Bates – Leslie Uggams
    Mae Mobley Leefolt – Emily Rosenfeld

    It’s a work in progress, but what do you think? Also:
    What show are most excited to see in the spring portion of the 2014-2015 season?
    For Patty, which Mother from Ragtime is your favorite? Christiane Noll or Marin Mazzie?
    For Emily, if you could pick any pair of actresses to be Daisy and Violet Hilton in another revival of Side Show, who would those actresses be?

    Thank you ladies for your amazing channel!
