Playbill Poll: From Clay Aiken to Liza Minnelli, Readers Pick Their Favorite Broadway Replacements
Last week talk-show host Wendy Williams stepped into the long-running Broadway revival of Chicago, while earlier this spring, “Glee” star Jane Lynch joined the cast of Annie. Playbill.com asked our readers who some of their favorite replacements were throughout Broadway history.
Broadway has a rich history of replacements, from Pearl Bailey in Hello, Dolly!, to Harvey Fierstein and Rosie O’Donnell in Fiddler on the Roof, Bryan Batt in La Cage aux Folles, Bernadette Peters in A Little Night Music and Betty Buckley in Sunset Boulevard.
Here are some of our reader’s favorite Broadway replacements.
Nancy Housteau: Clay Aiken in Monty Python’s Spamalot. He was the perfect Sir Robin. Blended with the rest of the cast perfectly.
dakota2424: Clay Aiken @clayaiken in Spamalot because he was terrific as Sir Robin!
Canuck1949: Absolutely @clayaiken was my favourite Bway replacement actor. Amazing
In 2008 “American Idol” finalist Clay Aiken made his Broadway debut in the Tony Award-winning musical Monty Python’s Spamalot in the role of Sir Robin. His appearance was so popular, he returned for an encore run later that year.
