Annaleigh Ashford


Annaleigh Ashford

Tony nominee Ashford has won notice playing ditzy blondes in Wicked, Legally Blonde and Kinky Boots. She could certainly embody the less-than-observant Sarah, and we imagine she'd sing a great rendition of "Come, Little Children."

Nina Arianda

Arianda burst onto Broadway with her hilarious performance as Bille Dawn in Born Yesterday and won a Tony for her tour-de-force as Vanda in Venus in Fur. Her scene-stealing abilities could easily explain Winifred's jealousy of Sarah, and we'd love to see her chanting "Amok, Amok, Amok."
