Matt Rickmeier: Jessie Mueller. She is such a rising star and she could bring a great interpretation to the role.

Since making her Broadway debut in the 2011 revival of On a Clear Day You Can See Forever, Jessie Mueller received a 2012 Tony nomination and went on to play Cinderella in the Shakespeare in the Park production of Into the Woods, Helena Landless in the Broadway revival of The Mystery of Edwin Drood and Billie Bendix in Nice Work If You Can Get It, succeeding Kelli O'Hara. All of the roles she has played have been completely different, and we would love to see what the actress could bring to the role of Fantine.
