Like Hello, Dolly! it is a well-constructed, intelligent musical comedy with an epic role for a performer of style and substance. When done well it seems near perfect to me.

I wouldn't mind seeing Sutton Foster try her hand at Marian. If Harold Hill is 50 then Marian should be in the ballpark. (Laura Osnes came to mind, but that's a 17-year age gap.)

Fill it out with some solid Broadway comedians like Ana Gasteyer (as Mrs. Shinn), Brooks Ashmanskas (Mayor Shinn), Danny Burstein (Marcellus Washburn) and why not Paula Pell as Mrs. Paroo?
