Stephanie J. Block

Trent Williams: Stephanine J. Block. It will get her the Tony she so deserves.
Lea Passione: Stephanie J. Block because she can pull off a great "I Dreamed a Dream"
Kade Ivy: Stephanie J. Block would be spectacular. Her distinctive vocals will bring humanity to the character, and this would be a great dramatic role and a shift for her!

Stephanie J. Block, who also starred in Broadway's 9 to 5, received her first Tony Award nomination this year, for her tour-de-force performance as the title character in the Roundabout Theatre Company revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood. The actress, who stepped in for actress Sutton Foster in the revival of Anything Goes and has been a favorite Elphaba of the long-running musical Wicked, has proved her versatility as a performer. Her other Broadway outings include The Pirate Queen and The Boy From Oz. We're sure that she would be a great choice in Les Miz and could even earn another Tony nod for her performance.
