That comment by Jefferson shows a breathtaking misunderstanding of Caroline the character and "Caroline" the show - the whole point of Lot's Wife is that she cannot change: she is rooted granitically to the spot, both literally and metaphorically, and will leave change to the next generation, as embodied by her daughter. One of the many braveries of the material is that it gives the lie to the oft-quoted dictum that characters in a show must change (cf. the end of WICKED: "Because I knew you / I have been changed for good.") That isn't always the case and Ms Clarke inhabits the truth of the character, and the show, to the nth degree.
