Benko was listed in the program but did not show up. She is young - would she have been a young Phyllis or Sally?

I think some performers were underutilized - Marc Kudisch could have done more. Also Stephen Bogardus turned 70 this year and looked and sounded beautiful - so handsome. Michael Berresse is turning 60 this August but looked 40 and moved like a young man. Did they cut the final verse of "The Right Girl" where Buddy sings "I screwed up, I don't love the Right Girl"? It seemed like the song ended early.

Jennifer Holiday was Jennifer Holiday but this time the mannerisms worked and she sold the survivor sentiment of the song like crazy - unorthodox but unforgettable. A five course meal served by a master cook. Katie Finneran disappointed me but she pretty much was the only one. Some of the older dancing ladies in "Who's That Woman" seemed to be thrilled to be back onstage dancing again it just shattered my heart. They way they were so into it recreating Michael Bennett choreography at this time in their lives/careers.

Do we wish they had performed some of the songs from the London production? The only cut was the Vincent and Vanessa characters and their dance specialty.
