  2. Anytime in November, I Want you to know that Annaleigh Ashford (Ali), Becky Gulsvig (Lisa), Gretchen Bieber (Tanya), Jan Neuberger (Rosie), Josh Franklin (Pepper), Tyler Maynard (Eddie), Dick Latessa (Sam Carmichael) & Michael DeVries (Bill Austin).

    • Because of her vocal range I would say Liana is more of a Nessa or Elphie than a Glinda – but I would personally love to see her playing those roles.
