Jordon Michael Hensley: Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch in "A Little Night Music!" They are the only replacements I have ever wanted to see.
Haley Huxley: Bernadette Peters in A Little Night Music. I thought she did a wonderful job as she always does in the role and sang "Send In the Clowns" with a lot more emotion and feeling than Catherine Zeta-Jones did.
Nathan Hinds: Bernadette Peters in A Little Night Music... Her 'Send In the Clowns' was perfection.

In 2010 Tony-winning theatre favorites Bernadette Peters and Elaine Stritch succeeded Catherine Zeta-Jones and Angela Lansbury, respectively, in the roles of actress Desirée Armfeldt and her worldly-wise mother Madame Armfeldt, in the revival of Stephen Sondheim and Hugh Wheeler's A Little Night Music, which opened in 2009.
