Diana Puertas: While I love Kara Lindsay as Katherine Plumber in Newsies, I would love to see Lea tackle the role. I think she has the comedic timing for the role.

Kara Lindsay originated the role of spunky reporter Katherine Plumber – who sings the driving patter song "Watch What Happens" – in the Tony-winning Disney musical that opened on Broadway in 2012. Based on the 1992 Disney film, Newsies is the tale of newsboy Jack Kelly, who dreams of a better life far from the hardship of the streets. Katherine helps Jack "Seize the Day."
