Dream Casting the Hello, Dolly Revival

On the same day that the Internet blew up with news that psuedo-celeb Sophia Grace has been cast as Little Red Ridinghood in the film version of Into the Woods, came news that Kristin Chenoweth is in talks to head a revival of Hello, Dolly!  While I could proably write pages about the casting of Into the Woods, I spent the day with my head in the clouds thinking about who would be great in a Cheno-led Dolly.

Here's what I came up with!  Please feel free to write in and tell me who else you'd like to see...




As Dolly Levi
Kristin Chenowewth
As Horace Vandergelder

Norbert Leo Butz
As Irene Malloy

           
Kate Baldwin or Ashley Brown or Betsy Wolfe

As Cornelius Hackl

Matt Bomer or Zachary Levi

As Minnie Faye

Allison Case or Kara Lindsay

As Barnaby Tucker

Ben Fankhauser or Jay Armstrong Johnson or Cody Williams

As Ambrose Kemper

Erik Altemus or Andy Mills or Ryan Steele

As Ermengarde

Laurie Veldheer

As Rudolph, the Head Waiter at Harmonia Gardens

Brandon Rubendall or Charlie Williams

As the Waiters at Harmonia Gardens

All of the Newsies Past and Present

  1. Peter Nelson should play Cornelius and Matt Ancill could play Barnaby. Timothy Hughes would be perfect for Ambrose.I think Kristin has to wait at least ten years before playing Dolly but she's much better casting than Sally Struthers who is unfortunately taking on the role in my neck of the woods, the Palm Springs area.
