Cast Question [Mar. 8th, 2009|06:25 pm]
In The Heights on Broadway

Hello everyone! I have a quick question!

I'm taking a short trip to Manhattan and Long Island March 21-24, a week before my birthday. The whole point of going is to check out the Long Island college I will probably be attending come fall.  My mom offered to take me to a Sunday matinee of a show for my birthday, and I would love to go see In The Heights. I'm would really prefer to see Christopher as Benny and Mandy as Nina though.

So my question is this, how often do the main characters use their understudies on Sunday matinees?

I'm asking because if it is often, I would rather go to a Saturday night show in the fall when I move out there, and go see a different show this month.

Also, does anyone know how long Christopher and Mandy plan on staying with the show?

there's nothing on www.broadwayunderstudies.com and I've seen them both at a matinee before. Granted it was this past summer but I think they'll be there.. I know Mandy was on vacation this week so she should be there then. Heh.

Anyways, best of luck visiting the school and I hope whatever you end up seeing you love!

Welllllll Chris said once in an interview that he's always there on Sundays, but when I went on a Sunday, he wasn't there. And unless she gets sick, as far as I know, Mandy'll be there.

But don't worry, the whole cast is crazyyyy talented, so if you get an understudy, I don't think you'll be disappointed.

And I HEARD that everyone signed on for another six months, and I also heard that Chris confirmed that he had signed on for another six months at the stagedoor. I don't know about Mandy, but since I heard the whole cast did, I assume she did too.

Maybe I'm just biased, but I think you should go see the show as soon as you can. It's so completely fantastic, and even if Mandy or Chris isn't there, you're not gonna be disappointed.

But you know, have a good time at whatever show you see(:

AW! That's a shame that he wasn't there!

I wouldn't be too disappointed, but if I could, I REALLY want to see Chris, his voice got me through this (semi) hard time last year!

I hope they all signed on for 6 more months!

Hehe, I really want to go see it! I probably will, and hey, if they aren't there, I'll just have to go see them in August!

Yeah, I was a little upset at first, because I loveee Chris, but Josh (his understudy) was very, very good. Maybe one day I can go back and catch Chris! I love that guy.

His voice is so pretty(: As is Mandy's. She's even better live, I hope you get to see her. The whole cast is wonderful, really.

I'm pretty sure they all did, so you have a very good chance of seeing most of them.

i've seen the show five times; twice for matinees (one on a sunday) and three times at night. Chris and Mandy have ALWAYS been there, even though i've seen almost everybody else's understudies. The same is true for most people I know, so hopefully you'll get lucky too :)
