Caleb Grochalski Betty Buckley. I'm astounded that she hasn't yet.

Some of Buckley’s numerous credits include the original Broadway casts of 1776, The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Triumph of Love and Cats, for which she won the Tony Award for her performance as Grizabella. Buckley, who starred in both the London and Broadway productions of Sunset Boulevard, was most recently seen in the Off-Broadway production of The Old Friends; she also played Rose in the 1998 Paper Mill Playhouse production of Gypsy.
